I posted yesterday about getting a flyer for a big conference happening next year. Then today, I got an advert about a smaller one happening next month, which is in fact the next conference I'm going to, as I'm an invited speaker at it.
It's taking place under the banner of "FUSTIPEN". I love this acronym. It stands for France-US-Theory Institute for Physics with Exotic Nuclei. Most physics acronyms at least make the effort of invoking some classical figure or other, and have a painfully contrived way of making it work. Not theorists, though - making something vaguely pronounceable is enough for them. Funnily enough, along with FUSTIPEN, there is also a JUSTIPEN (Japan) and CUSTIPEN (China). In other word-play, going to France means I am flying in to Orly airport. I must remember to post a selfie of me there looking a bit confused, captioned with "O RLY?"
