Format and goals

Dates

The first workshop event will take place at 7 pm on Saturday, June 26, and the last at dinner on Friday, July 2. Participants must attend all sessions. Field trips will take place Monday, June 28 and Wednesday, June 30.

Travel

The workshop will be held at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. Participants must make their own way to Northampton in time for the first workshop event at 7 pm on Saturday, June 26. Bradley International Airport in Hartford, Connecticut is about 40 miles south of Northampton.

To get from the airport to Northampton, participants may choose to rent a car at the airport or to take a limo. For the latter, reservations must be made in advance with Valley Transporter (1-800-872-8752). Limo fare is about $40 one way. Shortly before the workshop, we will provide everyone with a list of flights and arrivals of all participants so that those who are interested can contact one another to share rides.

Cost

The workshop itself is free. NSF Grant DUE-0127310 will provide funding for the operational costs of the workshop plus room, board, and workshop materials. Participants or their home institutions must provide transportation to and from the workshop. We will be able to offer small travel stipends to participants from institutions unable to cover travel costs. The deadline for application for travel stipends is May 24

Facilities

Smith College is a beautiful residential campus located in the delightful town of Northampton, Massachusetts . Workshop sessions will take place on campus. Workshop participants will be housed in single rooms in the dormitories and will eat meals on campus.
