Audio/Visual Equipment

Each room will have a laptop set up to a data projector for Powerpoint presentations.  To make for smooth transitions in between speakers, we ask that you put your presentation on a flash drive and use the laptop in the room, if possible. If you need any additional equipment please send an email to apucilow@uoregon.edu.

Weather

We are hoping for mild weather during the conference, but weather in the Pacific Northwest can be very unpredictable in November.  The average high temperatures for this time of year is 13°C (57°F), with lows around 5°C (41°F). There’s a moderate probability of rain showers, so it recommended to bring an umbrella.

The Phoenix Inn will provide complimentary transportation from the Eugene Airport between the hours of 7:00 am – 11:00 pm. Outside of those hours, it’s a $20 charge.
