On a regular basis, Geophysical Institute faculty hosts various academic meetings both on and off campus in the Fairbanks area. Conferences and special events that bring together leading researchers and highlight the work done at the GI help to establish the institute’s prestige and maintain our status within academia. To assist in the organization of such events, a small team of GI staff is available to help. The protocol outlines how sponsoring faculty and coordinators can work together to ensure conferences and events are planned well. Key elements that must be addressed early on in the planning stages are identified.
Please remember, that little can be done in the absence of information. Therefore, coordinators must be privy to the basic information for any given event as soon as possible.
