My first MTNS was in Kyoto, Japan, in 2006. It was my first conference outside Europe, a great experience, and to some extent it was one of the reasons why I decided to stay in academia: Part of the job description as a researcher is that you travel to nice and interesting places. Kyoto certainly ticks all the boxes.
But the symposium itself is also special, and I’m tempted to say that it is my favorite conference. It is not small, but unlike many other bigger conferences that I have attended, MTNS is organized by an international steering committee of volunteers without the support of a major society behind it, and it takes place only every two to three years.
Now, the next turn is on Groningen, Netherlands. A lively place in the heart of Europe. The call for papers is available on the website of MTNS 2014. The submission deadline for contributed papers is November 25, 2013. Looking forward to see you there!
