Tribes of the Deep Sky

Along with Ilani Loubser, we have been developing a conference to be held in South Africa.  Tribes of the Deep Sky: Multiwavelength Studies of Populations in Clusters and Groups is a conference to be held 24-28 February in Parys, South Africa.    I’m hoping to try to combine some ideas of an un-conference with a real conference, but also really promote discussion and debate.    One aspect that will hopefully implement is having the conference participants rate and choose the talks they want to see.    The highest rated abstracts will then get talks and it will be interesting to see how the schedule turns out.
