GeoDaRRS Logistics



The GeoDaRRS workshop will be hosted at the NCAR Center Green Campus, CG1 building, in the South Auditorium. This is the auditorium closest to the main entrance on your left as you enter. The CG1 main entrance is located on the south side of the building, exit doors are on the north side, and only UCAR staff can enter there. Parking is available on the west and north sides of the building, and there is underground parking available as you first approach the building, driveway is at traffic circle to the right (headed east). Parking is on a first come, first served basis.

Registration begins at 1:00 PM on Aug 7, in the CG1 lobby. There is a separate event (AMS Summer Community Meeting) being hosted in the other portion of the auditorium, so the facility will be very busy during the week.

The cafeteria is located between the South Auditorium bay and the main entrance.

Gender specific restrooms are located on the first floor to the right of north-side exit doors. All-gender/gender neutral, single-stall restrooms are located on the third floor of the conference venue, next to conference room CG-3150.

Lactation rooms are available for use of workshop participants, and are located on the second floor, in CG-2615. If you require the use of a refrigerator, please contact Cecilia Banner, Elizabeth Faircloth, or the registration desk. UCAR assumes no responsibility for items left in refrigerators.

The conference venue is fully accessible to wheelchairs, including restrooms, but feel free to contact Cecilia Banner should you have a special need and would like to double-check.

Many workshop participants are staying at either the Courtyard by Marriott, or the Hyatt Place, and will have rental cars. Please carpool if needed from these locations (please contact Cecilia Banner, to connect with guests that have rental cars if needed).  Participants staying at the Residence Inn are located adjacent to the workshop venue.



Lunch will be provided for workshop participants on Aug 8 in the CG-1 Cafeteria starting at 12:15 PM, by going through the cafeteria line and letting the cashier know which conference you are with (the AMS participants will be doing the same but they begin their lunch earlier).

A light breakfast will be provided for workshop participants on Aug 9, adjacent to the CG-1 South Auditorium starting at 8:00 AM.

Appetizers and drinks will be provided during the Aug 8 workshop Icebreaker starting at 5 PM.  This event will be held in the covered CG-1 patio (weather permitting). The CG-1 cafeteria upstairs and lobby will also be available for participants during the icebreaker.

Coffee will be provided at all workshop breaks, and on the mornings of Aug 8 and Aug 9.

Workshop participants will need to take care of lunch on their own on Aug 7 and Aug 9, and breakfast on their own on Aug 8; hotels may provide a continental breakfast.  Breakfast and lunch are available for purchase in the CG-1 Cafeteria.  Boulder Beer Company, Fresh Thymes Eatery, Deli Zone, The Roadhouse Boulder Depot, and Whole Foods Market are nearby options as well.
