ESM 2014 Report

The 14th biennial ESM was held in the historic Cambridge, MA July 2-6, 2014. The scientific presentation at this year’s conference and the keynotes by Dava Newman, Marian Hannan, Georg Duda and Paolo Bonato encompassed science from the cellular level to population science and from Earth to space! The art in science award presentations came from many different fields including diabetes, anthropology, geriatric, musical and clinical science.

This year’s conference was held over the American 4th of July Holiday.  The history of Cambridge was tied into each of our events and included the Harvard Museum of Natural History, Harvard Yard, the Longfellow House and much more!  While hurricane Arthur did its best to derail our plans on July 4th we made the best of the day which included World Cup soccer (fútbol) and an enjoyable (but wet) harbor cruise.

The conference concluded with a magnificent concert performance by pianist Henriette Gärtner, who in turn was also the art in science award winner for 2014. The scientific banquet was held at the Sheraton Commander conference site and attendees enjoyed contra music and dancing!

ESM 2014 was again a huge success and we look forward to the meeting in two years and the time we get to spend with our ESM friends and colleagues!
