Dave here, finally getting a chance to post about my week. I have been in Newport Beach, California, attending a conference on medicine and virtual reality (MMVR). I presented a paper on my research, gave a demo of the training system I've been working on, and got to meet a number of researchers from Canada, the U.S., and the U.K. If you're feeling curious, you can check out video clips of the system. If you're feeling really adventerous, let me know and I can send you the paper :) Unfortunately, an academic conference doesn't really provide lots of good photo ops, so you'll have to make do with some photos from the hotel I was staying at.
The central patio and pool area. Unfortunately, I left my swimsuit in Edmonton (I'm still not entirely sure where it is...) and so I didn't get a chance to do any outdoor swimming in February.
After the conference wrapped up on Saturday, I got picked up by my uncle Mark, and then spent Saturday and Sunday with Mark, Jeannie and my cousin Dan. We had a very laid-back visit, and enjoyed some excellent Thai food.
I am now back in snowy Edmonton, and getting ready to jump into another week.
