Note for Speakers, Session Chairs and Poster Presenters
If you are scheduled to give a talk, please contact your session chairman
and the organizer in charge of audio-video set-up to make sure that the
electronic file of your talk is uploaded (prior to the start of your
session) in the conference computer (MS Windows-XP operating system) and
works as intended. Speakers in the morning session should do this the
previous day evening. Session Chairs are responsible for ensuring this.
Attendees scheduled to make a poster presentation will have a poster space
of 5x6 feet (if you are not in the main schedule you have been assigned to
the poster session). Please ensure that your poster fits within these
Bozeman is a University town in the State of Montana and situated amidst
the Rocky Mountains in the North-Western part of the United States.
Bozeman is connected by air to major airline hubs such as Chicago, Denver,
Salt Lake City and Minneapolis. The airlines that service Bozeman include
Northwest (KLM), United, Delta, Alaska, Horizon and their partners
airlines. Bozeman's airport code is BZN and the airport is often referred
to as Gallatin Field Airport.
The airport is about 10 miles (typically 30
minutes drive) from the heart of the town. Airport shuttle service (All
Valley Cabs, Phone: 406-388-9999) and car rentals are available at the
airport; prior reservations are recommended (either call the shuttle
service or refer to websites below for car rental reservations).
Other nearby airports are
Billings (about 141 miles, 2 hours drive) and
(87 miles, 1 hour and 15 minutes drive); no shuttle service is
available from these nearby towns to Bozeman and one has to make their
own arrangements, for example, a rented car. From a logistic point of
view, flying into Bozeman's Gallatin Field Airport (BZN) is the most

Bozeman Area Information:
Note that public transportation within Bozeman is minimal. Therefore, if
you do not prefer to drive, we encourage you to stay in the University
dorm rooms, which is within walking distance (10 minutes) of the
conference venue. We may provide shuttle service from other hotels to the
conference venue depending on the demand.
Summer time in Bozeman is beautiful with occasional surprises such as a
snow-storm (although chances of that happening are about the same as
running into a Grizzly Bear in the middle of town). Typical temperature
(high-low) ranges between 74F - 44F (23.33C - 06.67C). For updated weather
information refer to
this web page.
An optional half-day activity is being planned which will include options
for hiking, fly-fishing, river-floating, white water rafting or soaking in
a nearby hotspring! Pending sufficient interest, a full-day trip to the
nearby Yellowstone National Park may be organized on the Saturday (June 7)
after the meeting. Please indicate your choices in the online registration
form. And ofcourse, you are free to plan your own independent recreational
trips on the weekends before or after the meeting.
Have you wondered about how much plastic and paper is typically wasted in
conferences -- either in the form of cups or in the form of conference
materials and their impact on the environment? We have tried to minimize
the usage of these materials and have provided you with the option of
having the abstract and informational booklet in the form of a CD or
electronic file. We are also providing you with a small metal water bottle
along with the conference material; it is our hope that you will carry
this every day to the workshop and will abstain from using paper or
plastic cups. We will also provide a bin where you can drop-off your
plastic name-tag holders and other reusable conference materials (at the
end of the workshop) so that they can be recycled. Small steps towards a
