Dress code is casual for the conference. The conference schedule is structured to give you time during the day to establish collaborations and go explore the beautiful Santa Fe area. Bring hiking clothes if you are interested in spending time in the local mountains. The aspen forests will be in their full spectacular fall colors during the conference. Temperatures can get cold at night and snow is possible this time of year at the higher elevations.
