The latest draft of the 3-day event schedule is available for the upcoming RSDD/CD joint meeting. First, thanks to Dean Rick Clement and his staff at Utah State University for hosting our meeting--we're in for a real treat. We have arranged for the meeting to be at the Swaner EcoCenter Conference Facility, a 1100-acre wilderness preserve just outside Park City, UT.
Second, thanks to everyone who submitted presentation proposals and the meeting planning group which met in San Diego to help craft the schedule.
Everyone should plan to arrive in Salt Lake City mid-day on Monday, May 2nd. Park City is about 30+ minutes from the SLC airport by shuttle van; more info regarding ground transportation will be coming closer to the meeting. The SLC airport is a hub for Delta, so chances are good for a non-stop flight.
Anne has secured a great rate at the Holiday Inn Express, Park City, just a few minutes' walk from the Swaner Center (see attached map). The hotel perks include a complimentary hot breakfast and free internet. We will be in the "NewPark" area a few miles north of Park City proper--there are a wide variety of restaurants and pubs within a block or two for group dining.
