specifically, the GREAT (Group on Graduate Research, Education, and Training) 2005 annual meeting coming up this October.

Has anyone on the board attended, and if so, what principles did you take from the conference that you found helpful and applicable to student/trainee issues at your own institution or work place?

Does anyone have anecdotes of specific ways this gathering has impacted the culture of education in the sciences?

Some of the topics on thier website mirror many of the discussions I have seen on this board (e.g. train fewer phds; what a phd degree program *should* be in order to land an industry job)
