2013 Greenwich Colloquium Huge Success!
In the tradition of Sir Christopher Wren and his Royal Society, the colloquium engendered congenial discussions on important
questions of scientific methods and practice with applications to the practical
affairs of man. Then there was the perfect weather (yes, in the UK), the beautiful buildings, the well-organized meetings, and the fun, informative and inspiring sessions! All happening at an important World Heritage Site. . . Priceless!
MAER-Net has incurred a large debt to Professor Mehmet Ugur and the University of Greenwich's conference team. I cannot think how we can ever repay such a large debt, but then neither can Greece! So let's all just meet next year in Athens Sept 11-14, 2014 to retire old debts and to make new ones. Thanks also to all of the presenters and participants who made this a very rewarding and special colloquium. It is only through the goodwill and brilliance of our members that keeps MAER-Net and meta-regression analysis advancing. Links to the papers and program can be found here. We are looking forward to seeing you in Athens this year!
