Biology of the Sauropod Dinosaurs: The Evolution of 
Gigantism
I'll still trying to find out if abstracts have been 
posted for this conference this weekend. Here's the press 
release in German:

There are links to online articles and descriptions of 
various projects about particular aspects of sauropod 
biology. It's in English with a German version also. 
However, it doesn't seem to have info on the current 
Flensburg conference.


The conference is at the Phänomenta science museum, which 
is also hosting an exhibit in 2011 entitled The Physics 
of Dinosaurs.

If you don't read German, you can try an online 
translation.
Unfortunately, the Google English translation that comes 
up for this page is a bit of a mess with a few 
inadvertently ridiculous statements (worth reading for a 
chuckle):
