Meeting Information


The conference sessions will be held in the southern portion of the University of Colorado - Boulder campus in the Kittredge Complex.  Some events will also be held in the Fleming Building.  Daily lunches will be provided through a lunch plan and will be held at the CU Center for Community (C4C).  Please visit the Travel Logistics tab of our webpage for additional information on getting to Boulder, housing, and other details on the Boulder area.  Note that travel grants are available for early career researchers!

Conference Dinner

There will be a conference dinner held at the NCAR Mesa Laboratory on Wednesday evening (11 July).  The laboratory, a Boulder landmark designed by I.M. Pei, won the 1997 AIA Colorado 25-Year Award.  Its poured-concrete towers, tinted by native red sandstone to blend with their dramatic mountain backdrop, rise above southwest Boulder from their mesa top site offering visitors a unique perspective of the city and surroundings. Transportation will be provided between the Kittredge Complex and the Mesa Laboratory for attendees and guests.  

Abstracts and Registration

Those wishing to present their ongoing work at ISARRA 2018 are requested to submit an abstract through our online submission system.  There is no abstract fee and abstracts are due by 15 February, 2018.  There will be a registration fee associated with the meeting.  At the moment, the exact amount has not been determined and will be dependent upon the total number of abstracts received.  We anticipate that this cost will be around $250 per participant, but we will do our best to keep the costs as low as possible.


The final conference agenda is still being developed and will be updated based on the number of abstracts received.  Below is a high-level plan for meeting sessions to help with travel planning.
