CSDMS 2.0: Moving ForwardMarch 23-25th 2013 Boulder Colorado, USA
Registration deadline: February 14th, 2013
Note: You only are successfully registered by fulfilling the above steps
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.

Objectives and general description
The CSDMS Meeting 2013 will bring together the CSDMS Working and Focus Research Group members to be engaged in defining long, medium and short term goals for the new strategic plan, to present new scientific insights in the modeling of surface dynamics, new advances in cyber-infrastructure and development and use of CSDMS models in education. The conference 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
The 3 day conference (March 23-25th) will be 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 6' x 4' / 4' x 6'). There will also be time for each of the Working Groups and Focus Research Groups to meet to determine long-term, medium-term and short-term goals. We ask a registration fee to cover all workshop materials; refreshments, lunches and the dinner banquet; plus local transportation from the hotel to the meeting/dinner venues. A more complete agenda of the conference will be posted later.
