|ND/SD EPSCoR Sixth Biennial Joint Conference is Sept. 7|
The ND/SD EPSCoR Sixth Biennial Joint Conference is Friday, Sept. 7, at NDSU. A detailed agenda, including speaker biographies and important logistical information, may be found at www.ndepscor.nodak.edu
An outstanding conference has been arranged, with poster presentations by EPSCoR supported students and speakers of national prominence addressing current research issues. The keynote speaker is David Snyder of the South Dakota Science and Technology Authority. As you may know, South Dakota has recently received a National Science Foundation award for DUSEL, the Deep Underground Science and Engineering Laboratory. This significant award has resulted in the reopening of Homestake Gold Mine in Lead, S.D., and promises to bring world-class scientific research to the Northern Black Hills of our neighboring state.
As parking is limited, we have been advised by NDSU that car pooling is suggested. All vehicles, including state vehicles, are asked to park in the Fargo Dome parking lot between West College Street, 17th Avenue N. and University Ave. See map on conference web site. A shuttle service will take conference attendees from the Dome to the Memorial Union (South side) and return. The shuttle will leave the Dome or Memorial Union approximately every 15 minutes. The parking and shuttle will be marked.
Registration for the conference luncheon has closed, but all are welcome to attend the conference presentations and poster sessions.
