  • Pick up your nametag on Tuesday morning (8:00 AM-noon) in the East Atrium of Grainger Hall. Coffee and pastries kick off the day at 8:00 AM in Grainger Hall’s West Atrium.
  • The forecast looks good, with lows in the 60s and highs in the 80s. There is a chance of rain on Tuesday. The walk from the sessions to lunch each day takes about 5 minutes. I would toss an umbrella in my suitcase.
  • Please arrive at your session 5 minutes early so that we can load your slides. There will be a volunteer (UW PhD students—say hello to them!) in each room to help.
  • The University of Wisconsin is affiliated with eduroam. There is also a guest WiFi network. More information about WiFi can be found in the app.
  • As of today, there are no masking or testing requirements imposed by the government or the University. Please wear a mask if that is how you are most comfortable. There is outdoor space at lunch and the receptions, and the plenary sessions take place in an oversized room where social distancing is possible.
  • A concert by The Contractions has been added to the social events program. They will play at the Essen Haus on Wednesday, June 29 from 9 PM-midnight.
