Program Overview


GLEON 2022 All Hands' Meeting Program Overview

In response to feedback, the GLEON 2022 Program Committee has extended the meeting program to begin earlier with a student-only activity and dinner on Saturday evening, workshops on Sunday, and the main beginning on Monday (instead of Tuesday) and continuing through Thursday. This change is to allow more time for working group and ad hoc group meeting time and a group excursion.
Space is available if you are part of a working group or team that wants to meet at the conference sites before the meeting begins or reserve a cottage with multiple bedrooms and shared bathrooms during the meeting. If this applies to your group, please let the site host, Dr. Kevin Rose, know about this as soon as possible.

The Darrin Fresh Water Institute is a field station of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and located about 20 minutes from Silver Bay YMCA. Visitors will be given a tour of the facilities and an introduction to the science and technology associated with the Jefferson Project, which is a partnership between Rensselaer, the Lake George Association (the oldest lake association in the country), and IBM Research. This visit is free and snacks/drinks will be provided. Space is limited.

Limited space is available, so this will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. If interested in attending the excursion, you should plan outbound airline travel for Saturday, Nov. 5th (or later).
