For those of us who are not able to make it to the conference in person, watch parties the world over facilitate virtual attendance. In the UK, Eva Amsen and I are co-hosting the London Science Online 2013 Watch Party this Saturday, 2nd February.
It’s going to be as good as being there. We’ve got a great day planned. All our events take place in and around South Kensington, with the Watch Party itself being held at Imperial College Union. The day will kick off with some fringe events of our own. We will start with a visit to the Turing exhibition at the Science Museum:
If you can’t make it to the watch party Saturday evening, you can still join us at the @sciencemuseum Turing exhibit. Meet at 12:45 outside.

After touring Turning, before the Watch Party, we plan to have a group late lunch.
We have an awesome venue for the watch party itself, thanks to the kind folks at Imperial Cinema…
…who are also handling AV for us.
During the Watch Party, we will watch and discuss some time-shifted sessions that were recorded live. We are taking a vote on which of these pre-recorded talks to watch. When you sign up for the Watch Party, do not forget to vote for the session that interests you the most. Mid-watch-party, We will link up live with conference attendees Laura and Lou for a live Q & A. If you are at the conference and want to chat to us too, get in touch with Laura as we’d love to say Hi!
Spread the word, and we will see you there!
