Given the success of prior GEER conferences, the high attendance, and the wonderful support of our partners and sponsors, this year's GEER will continue the three-day agenda, plus a pre-conference workshop, in a south Florida location to keep costs for participants as low as possible. The conference organizers have worked hard to provide an excellent location and conference venue, cutting-edge plenary and contributed sessions, and opportunities for valuable interaction – all while minimizing travel, lodging, and meeting costs.
