Upcoming biological conferences (locations, websites, & twitter streams)

Conferences are awesome.  Whether you're looking for conferences to attend, follow on Twitter, or just curious of what's out there, here are some relevant to North American natural history happening in the remainder of 2012 (and Jan 2013), sorted chronologically.  If you have additional suggestions note them in the comments - I'll be updating the list as I learn of more conferences.

For tips on how to tweet from conferences, and ways to organize a conference to maximize tweeting, see these tips from @WhySharksMatter.
