Note to On-Location participants from the conference planners:
We’re looking forward to your trip to Colorado and to the CU Boulder campus. As you’re planning your trip, here’s a few conference and Boulder things to know
Presenters – Bring your presentation on a USB drive. We’ll have computers set up in each of the rooms, so you’ll just need to copy your presentation onto the laptop that’s already plugged into the projection system. Please don’t plan to use your computer. It will cut into the time of your fellow panelists and presenters, and it could create problems with the projection system in the room. If you want to use a laser pointer, please bring your own.
Bring layers! Although we’ll have a high of 75 this Wednesday, the forecast on Thursday is calling for snow – possibly up to 5 inches – and a high of 28. But Friday’s weather looks better – no snow and a high of 39 – and Saturday is slated to have a high of 56. Welcome to our crazy Colorado weather.
Drink lots of water. Boulder is at 5,430 feet in elevation and has a (mostly) sunny, semi-arid climate. Hydrating during your stay, and even a few days ahead of time, is very important to avoid altitude sickness (headache, nausea, shortness of breath, dizziness, and tiredness).
Did I mention the semi-arid climate? You’ll want moisturizers – hand lotion, lipstick or lip moisturizers and sunscreen if you plan to be outside on Friday or Saturday, when we’ll be back to our sunny weather.
