The meeting will take place at the Asilomar Conference Center on the Monterey Peninsula, part of the California State Park System. The conference center which constitutes the largest collection of Arts and Crafts-style buildings in one location is a National Historic Landmark. Its facilities include a 650-seat auditorium, and venues to accommodate 15 simultaneous sessions. The Crocker Dining Hall is a spacious and welcoming gathering spot with high-beamed ceilings, stone pillars, hard wood floors and incomparable views of the forest and the dunes of Asilomar State Beach. Overnight lodging is available on the campus and has been reserved in anticipation of the meeting. The Center’s secluded and scenic location fosters intensive and productive interactions among meeting participants. Many scientific meetings occur at this unique and essentially ideal venue.
The climate for the Monterrey Peninsula is traditionally cool. You can anticipate mid-50 to low 60 degree F temperatures. We will keep you posted as we get closer to meeting time.
