Dear Sigrid and other organizers of the SftP conference:

The program look very interesting and I wish I could be there to attend the conference. But I live far away and there are many good reasons for people far away not to attend a good conference. 

Could I ask if the speakers and organizers make available PDF copies of at least key presentations?

Best regards,

Dear Science for the People activists, scholars, and enthusiasts,

I am pleased to announce that registration for our April 11-13 conference, "Science for the People: The 1970s and Today," to be held at UMass Amherst, is now open!

We are lining up an incredible list of speakers and panels, along with other fun events. Check out our preliminary program, read FAQs about registration, register for the conference, and leave messages for other attendees at

If you have technical questions about the conference that aren't answered on the website, please email me directly at [log in to unmask] rather than replying to the list. (I'm sensitive to the problem of inbox-clogging, so if it's not a substantive question worth sharing with everyone, best to direct it just to me.)

This is going to be great!
