This morning I awoke to the following email (and yes, “OMICS” does it again):
Dear Dr. Steve Caplan,
Greetings of the day. Hope you are doing well.
The purpose of this letter is to invite you to be an eminent speaker at the World Congress and Expo on Recycling during July 20-22, 2015 at Barcelona, Spain. The main theme of the conference is “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle for a better tomorrow” which covers a broad array of vitally key sessions.
We came across your contribution entitled Novel Functions for the Endocytic Regulatory Proteins MICAL-L1 and EHD1 in Mitosis published in the Traffic and thought your expertise would be an excellent fit for Recycling Expo-2015 Conference.
For more details please visit: http://recycling.omicsgroup.com/
We welcome you to be a part of this exciting Recycling Expo-2015 Conference as a Speaker (Oral & Poster)
Kindly contact us for any sort of further assistance.
Have a Great Day Doctor!!

I have to admit, this is a new level of sophistication: to “come across” my paper on endocytic regulatory proteins and mitosis, and connect this with environmental recycling. Painstaking research on the part of the organizing committee.
While it sure would be nice to be invited (as an eminent speaker) to Barcelona, I fear that the eminent environmental recycling speakers might be bored to tears hearing about endocytic recycling. So alas, I must decline my emminency…
