MS Frontiers 2015: thank you

Thank you MS Society for hosting Frontiers 2015? #MSBlog #MSResearch

"I was appropriately chastised for criticising the MS Frontiers programme for lacking energy and for putting 'the same-old' people on the platform;  the latter includes me. There were quite a few new, and young, faces at the meeting, but we still need more of them on the podium. I would have prefered less parallel sessions and more of a pecha kucha* format to allow more people to present their work. I am still disappointed that some of research teams the MS Society supports were not out in force. May be the MS Society should insist that if you have an MS Society grant you need to attend the meeting. On a personal note I had several heated discussions and debates and have some new ideas to explore. I must apologise about not hosting hangouts; the wireless network in the venue was not up to the  task."

  1. * PechaKucha or Pecha Kucha (Japanese: ペチャクチャ, IPA: [petɕa ku͍̥tɕa], chit-chat) is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called PechaKucha Nights (PKNs).
