SC is a huge conference, and gets bigger every year. But the conference has kept up, listening to attendee feedback and introducing new tools, features, and support for groups with special needs. SC09 just released its latest podcast, hosted by yours truly, and featuring a conversation with conference vice chair Cherri Pancake.
During the show Cherri addresses some of the things that SC is doing to help attendees manage their time at the conference
SC09 conference vice chair Dr. Cherri Pancake talks about personalizing your conference lodging, transportation, and daily plans with SC Your Way. Cherri also covers new services for international attendees, and talks about sustainable conferencing.
A part of this program that I especially enjoyed talking about with Cherri is the various ways that SC09 is trying to make responsible decisions about its environmental footprint. As you might imagine there are a whole host of ways to think about sustainability in a conference of this size, from what to do with disposable utensils to offering attendees the chance to have all of their materials delivered electronically rather than on paper. It was a really interesting discussion.
