In the fall, the weather in Memphis is beautiful, with temperatures in the 60s and 70s by day and 40s and 50s by night. We anticipate not only an academically stimulating scientific program, but also that there will be something for everyone in terms of Memphis culture and entertainment. We look forward to seeing you there!
