Next week in Santa Fe

We’re looking forward to meeting you on Monday evening. The weather may be brisk some days, with highs ranging from the low to mid 60s cooling into the 40s and even high 30s at night. There is always the chance of a thunderstorm, but these are usually short and mild. 

Before you arrive, please take another look at the schedule http://sciwrite.org/scisked17.html, and please keep an eye on the Latest Updates. Some of the instructors will be posting suggested readings for their talks.

For those of you who use Twitter, the hashtag will be #sfsciwrite. Alex Witze has put together a list of all the participants and instructors whose Twitter handles she could find: https://twitter.com/alexwitze/lists/santa-fe-sciwrite-2017/members. You can send her a direct message if you’d like to be added.

Finally a word on logistics. About 10 of you said you will have cars. There is a parking garage for guests at the hotel. If you’re not staying there, you’ll need to get a parking pass. 

On Tuesday morning we will all meet in the hotel lobby (including commuters) and carpool to the Santa Fe Institute, which is about 10 minutes away. If you have a car and are willing to drive, please make yourself known (wave keys in air, etc.,) and when you have a full car please head to the destination. Driving directions will be in your registration packet. We’ll give you more details when we meet Monday evening and will answer any questions.

We’re looking forward to meeting you all.
