Aspen Center for Physics

The main venue for this conference will be the Aspen Center for Physics, just a few minutes walk from the Aspen Meadows Resort. As generations of scientists can attest, the Center’s beautiful location and its low-key atmosphere create a unique and lively environment for thought, education, and collaboration.


Weather permitting, all breaks will be in the Stranahan Patio just south of the volleyball court. If weather does not permit, breaks will be in the Stranahan Lobby.


The campus has wireless.
