The full conference began yesterday. In the midst of listening to all the papers I can’t post anything much, but will keep live tweeting some of the presentations.
As ever, the best thing is meeting participants and finding out first hand about their work, stuff which will be published a year from now. Great fun watching people exchange data analyses by showing principal components results on their phones, and making arrangements to swop data sets. Also very entertaining to see the mix of ages, and to see Tom Bouchard talking to James Lee about the progress of our understanding of the genetics of intelligence, from what I will call the “twin age” to the genomic age.
Fabulous to see the youngest delegates attending and meeting the very researchers whose publications several decades ago inspired those student to enter the field. I saw first hand a few “your book changed my life” testimonial statements.
More to come.
