GLEON 15: Participation Review of the Meeting in Argentina

It was a sunny November afternoon at La Salada, a shallow lake, when we said our goodbyes to the GLEON 15 meeting participants. From the 4th of November to the 8th, 2014, the meeting was held mainly in the city of Bahía Blanca, Argentina.

It was an extremely fun, productive and successful meeting of the minds and of old and new friends. On Monday, the pre-meeting GSA Workshop started the week-long meeting, where researchers and postdocs joined 56 students from diverse countries such as China, Brazil, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada and USA, as well as Argentina.

Hello GLEONites!

We intend to use this blog as the substitute for the Graduate Student Association (GSA) newsletter, but this is for everyone, not only for the students! We hope it provides easier design and management, as well as more timely posts once it’s rolling!
