FYI, the methods ICES working group (WGMG) is planning its annual meeting in Reykjavik just after the ICES meeting.

Subject: [ADMB Users] ADMB meeting in Reykjavik - Doodle Poll
Dear friends,

The upcoming ADMB Developers' workshop in Reykjavik in September was 
discussed a bit at the ADMB Foundation board meeting last week. There are 
two other relevant conferences taking place in Reykjavik in the same 

   12-14 Sep (Thu-Sat), LGM conference in Reykjavik

   23-27 Sep (Mon-Fri), ICES conference in Reykjavik

Initially, we (Anders, Arni, Hans) scheduled the ADMB meeting 8-11 
September, just prior to the LGM conference. Now that our LGM abstract has 
been rejected, our focus is shifting to the ICES conference.

It seems likely that some ADMB-oriented people might attend the ICES 
conference. To make it practical to visit Iceland and attend both the ADMB 
and ICES events, we could shift the ADMB meeting to be just before or 
after the ICES meeting.


Therefore, I have set up a Doodle Poll:


Please mark the days that you would _prefer_. If there are days you 
_cannot_ make it, please email me so I can take that into account. Ignore 
this poll if you don't plan to attend. Feel free to forward this email to 

At the end of the poll, we are looking for a 4-day slot for the ADMB 

The range between 17 Sep and 1 Oct would be practical for anyone planning 
to attend both the ADMB and ICES events. If I'm the only one attending 
both, there may be no practical reason to shift the ADMB meeting.

Let's finish this poll before Wednesday (19 June) and make a decision.

Looking forward to welcoming you to Iceland this autumn,


P.S. If you urgently need a reason to attend the ICES conference, I can 
add you as a coauthor on a simple paper that's been accepted in Session Q 
on Bayesian methods. Your contribution would be in the introduction and 
discussion sections. This might help convince your employer about the need 
to travel to Reykjavik this autumn.
