2005 Io Volcano Workshop
2001 Io Decadal White Paper
Poster, to be updated for OPAG consumption (minimal changes so far).
Note the new dates:
workshop forward two days to avoid conflict with the rescheduled Outer Planets Assessment Group
that will be held on Thursday and Friday June 9 - 10. We hope you can
events, and ensure that Io is well-represented at the OPAG meeting.
This is the latest in a series of Io volcano workshops that have
held once or twice per year for the last few years. The most
recent was organized by Bob Howell at Grand Teton National Park in
August 2004. We meet to present and discuss the latest research
on Io's interior, volcanos, surface, and atmosphere in an informal
setting. While the emphasis is on volcanic processes, discussion
of other related topics is welcome (and as we all know, everything on
Io is related...).
Agenda and Presentations.
The agenda now includes links to PDF versions of most people's
Boulder showing the location of SwRI. We are on the 4th floor
of the Exeter Building, 1050 Walnut St. The entrance is on
the east side of the building, on 11th St. south of Walnut, not on the
north side as shown on this map. Additional maps and other
logistical information about SwRI Boulder can be found here
Travel to Boulder
If arriving by plane, plan on flying into Denver. Then take a
or shuttle to Boulder (about a 75-minute journey), or rent a car.
Boulder is compact and has good public transportation, so you may not
need a car. More
information on transportation to and within Boulder, and other local
information. The shuttle van from the airport costs about
$25, and the bus costs about $10.
Lodging in Boulder
Visitors to SwRI can get a discount at the following hotels: ask for
the Southwest Research Institute rate when making your
reservation. Both hotels have free high-speed Internet. For
bus details, see this bus map and
options, including several more expensive hotels or B&Bs that
are closer to SwRI. The closest is the brand-new St. Julien hotel, just 1 block west
