    If you’ll be in the Atlanta area next week, come watch this event live! It will be free and open to the public, and will be held at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center. For those attending AbSciCon 2012, it’s the same venue as the conference; we’ll be in the room that the plenaries will be in.
