The Society for Neuroscience is breaking attendance records in San Diego this week, according to a press release. We're talking 31,000 attendees and more than 60,000 room nights here. My husband is at the show, and he said last night that the trade show floor was hopping, too. The only thing that concerns me was, as he stood on the roof of the convention center talking to me on his cellphone, he was commenting on the container ships close by. Call me paranoid, but this seems to be a bit of a security risk, allowing these ships so close to the center where 31,000 people are gathered.
But the good news is that about 40 percent of the attendees are international, which indicates that all the recent passport and border rules aren't keeping people from coming to this prestigious event.
