Major Projects &
2006 Annual Meeting: Palm Springs, CA
The 2006 SCEC Annual Meeting was held September 10-13 at the Hilton Palm Springs Resort in Palm Springs, California. Note: The meeting was moved to this venue from our usual meeting hotel, the Riviera Resort and Racquet Club. The Riviera was sold in March and closed on May 29 for a $300M renovation.
The Hilton is about 3 km from the Riviera, in downtown Palm Springs. Due to this venue change, the meeting facilities were not as spacious as the Riviera, but the hotel was adequate for our needs. The hotel web site can be found through http://www.palmsprings.hilton.com/.
The meeting was organized by the SCEC Planning Committee, chaired by Ralph Archuleta. A draft agenda is now available. There were poster presentations with abstracts due no later than August 24. Abstracts were submitted on line and you can now search for abstracts below. In addition to the normal work of planning future activities, we again had several science talks during the meeting, with evenings set aside for poster sessions/viewing.
Posters should be put up on Sunday night; the display panels for posters are 120 cm high by 240 cm wide.
The annual meeting formally started on Monday morning and concluded late Wednesday morning. Prior to the meeting, there was a one-day workshop on California 3-D Seismic Velocity Models, a meeting to discuss the Southern San Andreas Fault (SoSAF) Project, and a viewing of the paleoseismic study site at Salt Creek -- all on Sunday, September 10. There was also a two-day pulverization workshop and field trip on Saturday and Sunday (Sept. 9-10). During the Monday night (Sept. 11) poster session, in addition to the usual posters and demos, there was a UseIT SCEC/VDO software release party. After the main meeting ended, there was a meeting on Extreme Ground Motion research results, from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday (Sept. 13-14).
SCEC scientists were strongly encouraged to bring their students to Palm Springs.
