Dear all,

Things are moving fast for FSM4 held 19-23 February 2017 in Chennai, India. Over 350 abstracts have been submitted, covering a wide range of developments and innovations that will stimulate discussion and growth in the FSM community.

Our early registration deadline is 16 December 2016. Don’t miss this opportunity to pay the lower registration fee and secure your place at FSM4 .

Field trips for Sunday 19 February and Workshops on 23 February are attracting a lot of interest. The field trips in particular are filling up fast and numbers are limited.

Are you interested in exhibiting? The Exhibition registration link is available here . Exhibition booths are already confirmed for a number of key players in the industry.

Looking forward seeing you in Chennai!
Best regards,
Susanne

Hi Susanne,

Have all the authors been notified of acceptance or rejection of their submitted abstracts by now? I ask because someone e-mailed me today and said that he hadn't heard back about his abstract yet.

Regards,
Elisabeth

That's a very cool flyer, thank you.

For those of us who weren't able to travel to Chennai: is there any live streaming from the sessions this week?
The live streaming from the SuSanA meeting in Chennai on Saturday worked superbly! I had it on my mobile phone and took it with me everywhere, to the kids' soccer matches, in the car, shopping... I treated it like listening to something live on the radio (the only downside was that as I used my mobile phone for the live streaming, I couldn't follow or tweet on Twitter at the same time which was a bummer).

So we know it's possible to live stream from Chennai, therefore I hope some of the conference will also be live streamed? If not, will it be filmed and the recordings made available afterwards?

Regards,
Elisabeth
