It’s already Thursday afternoon here in Copenhagen, and CompSust’12 is off to an exciting start. Yesterday we had a terrific turn out for the 1st International Master Class on Computational Sustainability. Today our computational sustainability crowd grew with the official start of the conference. The panel about growing and nurturing the computational sustainability community yielded a number of helpful ideas and suggestions, and we hope many of you who participated will be joining us here on the blog soon. If you’re in Copenhagen right now, Mark Crowley has invited any potential bloggers to chat with him, and you’re welcome to talk with any of us associated with the Institute for Computational Sustainability as well. If you’re unable to join us in Copenhagen, we hope to have slides posted soon so you can join in via the internet!
