I am on my way back home from Lisbon. I just attended and presented at the 5th European Communication Conference by ECREA (European Communication Research and Education Association).
This is the first conference of such as scope that I participate in and it was tons of fun. Beyond the typical nervousness of presenting (and beating the world record of number of slides in 12 minutes), I got to meet lots of people that I already knew, and got to meet new great people. I am seriously enjoying the conference thing more and more, and now that I start knowing people, it is a great way to catch up.
Plus Lisbon rocks.
