Objectives and Schedule

The CSDMS Meeting 2011 will bring together CSDMS members to present new scientific insights in the modeling of surface dynamics and the impact of time and process scales, new advances in cyber-infrastructure, development and use of CSDMS models in education, and to allow the CSDMS Working and Focus Research Groups to engage in cross-domain discussions. Our Impact of time and process scales theme will address state-of-the art hydrological, ice, earth and ocean modeling; advances in the use of the CSDMS Model-coupling Tool (CMT); high performance computing projects; and will offer various hands-on clinics on specific community models as well as on model tools and protocols.

Conference set up

For the latest schedule: CSDMS Meeting 2011 Schedule (drafted October 11, 2011)

The 3 day conference (October 28-30th) is being held partly over the weekend so as to have a minimal impact on peoples courses and teaching schedules. The program includes keynote speakers, hands-on clinics about models as well as on model protocols and standards, and poster sessions (note: poster boards are sized 4' wide x 6' high). There will also be time for each of the Working Groups and Focus Research Groups to meet. We have asked for a registration fee this year to cover workshop materials; refreshments, lunches and the dinner banquet; plus local transportation from the hotel to the meeting/dinner venues.


The Meeting Hotel: Millennium Harvest House
The Meeting Venue: UCAR Center Green Campus (CG1)
Transportation to/from the Hotel and Meeting:
University of Colorado buses will transport meeting delegates from the Millennium Harvest House Hotel in Boulder to the meeting venue (UCAR Center Green Campus, CG1). IMPORTANT NOTE: The buses will load at 7:30am and depart at 7:45am from outside the hotel lobby. The buses will return participants to the hotel after the meeting ends each day. Buses will load from UCAR CG1 at 6:00pm and depart at 6:15pm (departure will be from 5:45pm to 6:00pm on Oct 29 to accommodate the evening banquet). The drive to/from the hotel and UCAR will take about 15-20 minutes.

It is highly recommended that you use the CU buses. However, if you need to arrive/depart at other times on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, you may use the local RTD bus system: RTD ride. To find the right bus route, in the directional fields, input the hotel as ‘Arapahoe & 28th Street (choose Boulder) and input UCAR as ‘Valmont & Center Green Drive’. Another option (on Friday only) is to catch a UCAR shuttle. The nearest pick-up/drop-off point from the hotel is the 29th Street Mall point located by the California Pizza Kitchen by the intersection of 28th street and Canyon Street. It is a couple blocks walk from the hotel. Visit this link for exact information on where to catch the UCAR shuttle: UCAR Shuttle. Note that service to UCAR/Center Green, is only provided during peak hours on Friday (6:45 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., 4:00 p.m. to 6:45 p.m.)

The Millennium Harvest House Hotel will assist you with taxi service.

Directions to/from: Denver Airport - Boulder
