The meeting will be in some of the most beautiful locations in California and the world. While, due to the current situation, we have decided not to have an additional pre-meeting field trip, the meeting will have two field trips and will start in downtown San Francisco, offering attendees endless opportunities to organize their own activities. Whether driving along the famed Highway 1 on the majestic Big Sur coastline, touring the Monterey peninsula, boating on Lake Tahoe, visiting the awe-inspiring redwood groves on the coast, or tasting wine in the famous Sonoma and Napa Counties you are sure to have a memorable time. Or you may decide to stay in San Francisco, consistently ranked as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Please note that due to current University of California regulations, to participate in the conference, participants must show proof of SARS-CoV-2 vaccination or produce evidence for a valid medical exemption to vaccination. This requirement may change, but it is currently strictly enforced.
