The conference was held Monday through Thursday, May 21-24. Thanks for coming!
The conference proceedings submissions are due on July 15th.
The conference was held at the Alyeska Prince Hotel in Girdwood, Alaska. Girdwood is a beautiful mountain town about 40 miles south of Anchorage. Alaska is the 49th state of the United States and therefore has the same travel restrictions as the rest of the U.S. If you are coming from outside the U.S. check to see what travel requirements you will need to enter the U.S.

We hope that participants took the time before or after the meeting to enjoy Alaska. For information on travel and sightseeing, go here.
The conference dates were chosen for when Alaska typically has the nicest weather, and we weren't disappointed. At this time of year the temperatures are typically 50-60F (10-15C). Except at high altitudes the snow has melted. Alaska is known as the "land of the midnight sun", and by this time of year there is no darkness. It is an ideal time to be in Alaska because the weather is nice, and the crush of tourists and mosquitoes has yet to arrive. The weather in Alaska in late May is usually drier than the later summer months, but rain is always a possibility so come prepared. A warm, water-repellant coat and a good rain hat are important, as is an umbrella. In Alaska there is a saying: "There's no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear!"
