CONFERENCE SITE

The meeting is scheduled to be held from October 31-November 4, 2021, at the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Conference Center, at 850 Willow Creek Road, Lake Arrowhead, CA 92352. The facility will provide group meals, in a private dining area so the participants will have maximum opportunities for mingling and informal discussions.  At this time of year, the surrounding area provides hiking and other outdoor activities which could be used during free time in the early afternoon, before poster sessions.  The facility offers four tennis courts, a putting green, a swimming pool and heated jacuzzis, and acres of virgin forest and shoreline.  The guest rooms are duplex (shared) 2-story cabins with a bedroom and private bathroom on each story.  Each room contains a fireplace.
