I'm at the 2nd conference. We move the day after I get back.
My talk was a big hit. I had disproved a Famous Scientist's work, and presented my results to an audience containing the big people in my field (including Famous Scientist). After the talk, FS told me he liked my work, and then he thanked me for citing him! The founder of my field also liked it, and spoke with me for ten minutes about what to investigate next.
So... this conference is at the most inconvenient time in my life, but I'm finally on the map within my field!
