    I wasn’t sure if you all already knew about this, but ToScA is happening here at UF March 6-8, 2019. They have an abstract submission section for education and outreach – it might be cool to show some of the CT scanning/3D printing everyone’s been doing? Abstract deadline is Nov. 30th and here’s the direct link

    And here’s a more detailed email about the meeting/abstract submission:

    Dear all:
    The second ToScA North America Symposium is to be held at the University of Florida. The symposium provides an opportunity for open discussions, networking with researchers and commercial industry representatives, and a platform to engage in collaborations across disciplines using tomography.
