Objectives and general description

The CSDMS Meeting 2013 is designed to launch CSDMS2.0 and engage on the technical and community challenges over the next five years (2013-2018), including: 1) Transformative software products and approaches designed to be accessible, easy to use, and relevant. 2) New community initiatives to advance earth-surface process modeling across many disciplines. 3) Educational products and training workshops aimed at various entry levels.

Working and Focus Research Group participants will update their strategic plan by defining their long, medium and short term goals.

The conference will offer state-of-the art presentations in earth-surface dynamics and modeling and hands-on clinics related to community models, tools and approaches.


Reimbursement

Within its budget, CSDMS intends to support member applicants to attend the annual meeting. Towards this goal, we encourage members to fully or partially cover their expenses if capable. We additionally thank those in the industry and agency fields for understanding that 1) we cannot compensate federal agency participants since our own funding is from NSF, and 2) we request that our industrial/ corporate participants cover their own costs thereby allowing more academic participants to attend.

To the extent possible, dependent upon the meeting budget and expenses, CSDMS intends to reimburse the registration fee, lodging (shared rooms at 100% and single rooms at 50% at Millennium Harvest House Hotel), and a limited amount of travel expenses of qualified registrants - those members who have attended all three days of the meeting and are not industry or federal employees.

Registration by 14 February 2013 is required to secure your space at the meeting and your accommodations at the meeting hotel. There are only a limited number of rooms being held at a discounted rate in the Millennium Harvest House Hotel, Boulder. (Note: The discounted rate is only available via this website registration.) We ask that you register as soon as possible.

If you are already registered and want to make changes, then Log in, select your registration record in "registered participants" and start making changes by clicking "Edit registration".
