This fall I will attend and present at the William Smith 2010 meeting "Landscapes into Rock", hosted by the Geological Society in London, 21-23 of September. Landscape into Rock is an inspiring title, with an even more inspiring set of sessions and keynote speakers. Below is a synopsis of the meeting; you can also go to the website here, find out more, and register if you are planning to attend.

I am planning to microblog (via twitter and Tumblr) in real time, and blog at the end of each day (in semi-real time at Romania Rocks), but I do not promise. Internet connection can be quite a luxury while abroad (especially in Europe) and I hate paying an arm and a leg for the real-time thing. In any case, I will certainly take good notes and blog heavily real-time or after the event.
