Big Meetings

In the conference I recently attended in Vienna, there were two types of presentations.

The poster presentation:

And the oral presentation:

Notice that the presentation is actually projected in 5 panels!

It was a conference with thousands of attendees and parallel sessions were of course a necessity. Sometimes it is difficult to decide which session to attend especially if your interests are wide. And it was very tiring too.

Fortunately, at the end of each day there was always some warm food waiting at the dinner table, like this typical Austrian schinitzel:

Or this mouth-watering fish dish:

Or this most delicious Chinese take away I’ve ever had:

It is therefore very well-known in the field that long conferences make many scientists gain weight.

    The bellies may get bigger, but not fattier. Not that unhealthy food in your pics, I must say. Beats burgers, especially flipping them 🙂

    @Smek: I refuse to eat burgers when out of town…I mean you don’t go to Vienna and then eat at McDonalds. I can do that at home anyway. The chinese takeaway, I could also do home but I couldn’t resist trying it!
