We will open the conference with a Wed night event at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences Nature Research Center (http://naturalsciences.org/nature-research-center) in Raleigh (6-9 PM). It’s an amazing venue. The museum is a short walk from the Marriott/Sheraton.

We will start at 6pm. We will have light appetizers (cheese, fruit, vegetable crudités, finger sandwiches) and drinks (Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale (http://www.kentuckyale.com/kentucky-bourbon-barrel-ale) and wine). Bora, Anton, and I will welcome you with a toast to the event and then encourage you to explore and start your conversations!

We encourage you to purchase some more substantial food in the Daily Planet Café (http://www.thedailyplanetcafe.com/) as you stay for the evening. Their entire menu (http://www.thedailyplanetcafe.com/menu/) will be available. At 7:45ish, our very own Brian Malow (http://www.sciencecomedian.com/) (the Science Comedian (http://www.sciencecomedian.com/) ) will entertain you from his home stage of theSECU Daily Planet (http://naturalsciences.org/nature-research-center/daily-planet) (a 3-story theatre inside the large globe you see outside the museum!), which is a focal point of the Nature Research Center.
