The EUSEA Annual Conference 2012
Monday 9th – Wednesday 11th July 2012 – The Gresham Hotel Dublin
The sessions of the EAC12 offer mainly two different possibilities to create new opportunities for the
organisations of the participants: (1) experts from the European Commission, from research/science
and from industry will present their new ideas, new projects and new opportunities for cooperation,
and (2) an extension of the useful coffee breaks by implementing interesting, novel structured
sessions to meet as many participants as possible in a direct way for collecting and discussing new
ideas, joint project – and sharing experiences.

The Robert Boyle Summer School
The Robert Boyle Summer School will run this summer from the 15th – 18th July 2012 at his birthplace, Lismore Heriatge Town, Co Waterford. Ireland has for many years had several highly successful summer schools celebrating figures from literature and music and now there is one to celebrate one of the most important figures in the history of science, Robert Boyle.
The summer schools will be a place where scientists and non-scientists can meet and discuss matters relating to science and consider the place of science in our culture. This year is a special year to celebrate: it is the 350th anniversary of the publication of “Boyle’s Law” and the 15th July will be the 350th anniversary of the granting of the charter the Royal Society.
The dates of the festival will suit participants attending ESOF Dublin 2012. The organisers are pleased to announce that several of the leading Boyle scholars will be heading to Lismore including Michael Hunter, Birbeck College London, Michelle DiMeo, Georgia Tech, Kieth Moore, Librarian Royal Society. They will be joined by several scientists including Jonathan Ashmore FRS and Ingrid Hook. There will also be costumed recreations of Boyle’s most famous experiments and lots of other activities.
