St. John’s College, Santa Fe NM
Thursday June 24 – Sunday June 27, 2010
The conference, sponsored by the Institute for Rock Magnetism with support from NSF, will feature a format promoting in-depth discussions centered on the following themes: 1) Successful Developments in Paleointensity; 2) Extra-terrestrial Magnetism; 3) Environmental Magnetism; and 4) Quantitative Modeling of Mineral Magnetic Data.
A small number of speakers (invited by the session chairs) will begin each session with critiques of particular relevant issues, to serve as starting points for discussion. All participants are encouraged to come armed with a few overhead transparencies or Powerpoint slides to contribute to the discussion as time permits and at the discretion of the session chairs. No abstract submission is required, but participants are encouraged to discuss potential presentation materials with the session chairs (listed on following page) in advance.
Thanks to the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation, there is no conference registration fee, and no cost for on-site accommodations (double-occupancy dormitory room, meals in the cafeteria and coffee breaks). For accompanying spouses or other nonparticipant guests, $205 will cover room and meals. An optional pre-meeting field trip to the Valles Caldera National Preserve will be held Thursday June 24, and field trip participants will be able to check in at St John's on Wednesday.
