We’re off to a great start with the 2012 iLAND Symposium: Moving into the Out There. These annual symposiums give us a taste of the interdisciplinary research community that iLAND is creating.
As is often the case with iLAND, many conversations are started that open onto much bigger discussions that we do not have time to continue in the confines of the Symposium. Stay tuned for blog posts by Gretchen Till, who will be blogging throughout this year’s Symposium; we hope you will join the conversation in person and online.
