The Barry & Virginia Weinman Symposium

11th Symposium Photo Gallery (2019)

When every aspect of an event seems effortlessly fantastic, it’s because everyone showed up and focused on contributing to the collective effort. This year’s Weinman Symposium combined great science with excellent presentations and cooperative efforts of all of the scientists who participated.

The weather gods offered flawless weather as well. We’d had two weeks of rain and wind prior to the 11th Annual Symposium, but the trade winds swept away the clouds and we had sunshine and light trade winds for the duration of the event.

The symposium was so fun that a number of participants decided to rent a boat and go fishing the day after the event ended. Dr. Carbone promised that he’d cook anything they caught – so they brought home three beautiful tuna. It seems that great scientists can also fish!
