The first time in the U.S., Anchorage will sponsor the IGEC this Monday and Tuesday at the Hilton hotel.  Guests from Turkey, China, Malaysia, Canada and various universities in the U.S. will present on their topics of research.  Many will be catching the tour to Seward the day before, and others will be getting a tour of the UAF Experimental Farm on Tuesday afternoon before the final evening banquet.


The conference opens at 8am with an address from Sam Gingerich (UAA provost), Annie Zeng of the Confucius Center, and Sean Skaling of Alaska Energy Authority. Breakout sessions will go from there.  Many tech sessions follow.  If you are interested in attending, call Art at3220-2309.
