The last couple of months have been really hectic with so much happening on every front – except the free diving and scuba diving front. However, the good news in all of this chaos and lack of diving, is that the call for proposals for lca2011 has seen some excellent submissions which is going to make it hard for the papers team to select from. The papers team is currently in the process of reviewing with a face to face meeting happening this Saturday in Sydney. This means there will be some really cool announcements coming shortly. It is also anticipated that registrations will follow these announcements, though there is still quite a few things that the team need to do before this happens. For those of you wanting to know about miniconfs – these announcements will also be made available very, very soon. Things are really starting to come together for the conference with the whole team working on this in any spare time that they find.
