Handheld science: Mobile devices at scientific conferences

Russ Campbell, communications officer for the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, asked me for some ideas on how scientists might use handheld mobile devices at scientific meetings. His article--which includes a look at how one scientist's using her iPad at conferences--is called Handheld Science. Check out the article for thoughts on networking, meeting new colleagues, presenting, collaborating and even getting more publicity during conferences.
