“On an extracurricular note, the organizers planned several group events that seemed to be a resounding success. Of particular appeal to me were the rafting trip on the Colorado River, which 12 of us attended, and the Leftovers Party at the end of the workshop during which everyone brought their remaining foodstuffs and cooked, ate, and enjoyed each other's company. ”

Organizer Duties While in Aspen



Meeting Schedule

Reserve your meeting times and spaces at the Smart front desk. Provide the Smart front desk with your talks, titles and speakers so the information can be disseminated to all Center participants.

Social Activities

The social aspects of your meeting enhance the experience for everyone. There is always a barbecue for all physicists and their families on Tuesdays with volleyball following. The Aspen Science Center's kids' barbecue is on Wednesdays. You are welcome to use the grills for informal gatherings any other day, including weekends. Just be sure to get instructions from us first.

If you want to arrange a group outing, ask for guidance at our front desk. Lunch or dinner at Pine Creek Cookhouse, with a hike or bike, is a memorable event. The Snowmass Rodeo is a real wild–west event with a chuck–wagon dinner. Rafting, horseback riding, a frisbee or regular golf or tennis tournament, a gondola ride and picnic, or a group fly–fishing lesson can all be arranged quickly and easily. Google “Aspen summer activities” for a full range of possibilities.
