EVTH10: Humor and Science: A Comical Look at Ourselves

Thursday February 23, 18:00 – 20:00, Room 250 A, B, D, E

Organizers: Jules S. Jaffe, Scripps Inst. of Oceanography/UCSD, jules@mpl.ucsd.edu; Peter J. S. Franks, Scripps Inst. of Oceanography/UCSD, pfranks@ucsd.edu

This independent, evening session, outside of the scientific program, will be devoted to finding the humor in science, and presenting a lighter side of ourselves and our research to our colleagues.  We solicit 15-minute satirical presentations exposing the humorous underbelly of our field in the vein of “The Onion,” the “Annals of Improbable Research,” or “The Far Side” cartoons.  Talks will marry the keen observational powers of the scientist and humorist to show how alternate interpretations of facts can lead to fascinating and humorous conclusions.  As examples of talks, the co-conveners are planning on presenting “The Gefilte Oceanographer” (Jaffe) and  “The Great Sunglass Die-off of 2009” (Franks).  We invite our community to participate in a forum that will permit us to convey a different, entertaining, and thought-provoking view of ourselves and our culture, however we will discourage and even reject talks “in progress” that are vindictive and personal. Please submit a 200 word abstract with a title to Jules (jjaffe@ucsd.edu) and Peter (pfranks@ucsd.edu) by the conference abstract submission deadline to be considered for a presentation.
