Conference Location

Natural History Building

The majority of the conference will be held in the newly-renovated Natural History Building. This 148,000 square-foot space features modular classrooms and laboratories employed with the latest technology suitable for collaboration among faculty and students. Our visualization studio allows researchers to analyze satellite weather data from NASA mission data to examining the eye of a hurricane. The 300-person auditorium will host the research presentations on both days, while the commons area on the third floor provides ample space for the poster sessions.
