Rendezvous 2018

The CIRES Members' Council is pleased to announce the 16th annual CIRES Rendezvous.

This year’s Rendezvous will take place on Friday, May 21, 2021 and will be virtual.

State of the Institute Live Stream:

The event will include a State of Institute address by CIRES Director, Waleed Abdalati, and also this year’s Rendezvous awards.


State of the Institute/Awards 10:00am - 11:30am  
Break/Grab some lunch (on your own) 11:30am - 12:30pm  
Getting to know Topia (via Topia Link) 12:30pm -1:00pm  
Poster Sessions/Chance to interact with all your colleagues(The entire Poster Session will be in Topia.  Use the Topia Link to participate)
1:00pm - 4:30pm  

Important Notes:

• Google Chrome is the only browser that works with Topia
• Groups of 10 or less for gathering in Topia works best. More than 10 people becomes difficult to hear each other and talk together. If a poster has more than 10 people, please move along to another poster and come back later.
• We will be phasing in groups from 12:30 to 1pm on May 21st. Please try to phase in with our group to avoid everyone entering in to Topia all at once. CMC ‘Shepherds’ will be available to assist you to your division during 12:30 to 1pm.
• Looking for a specific poster presenter or time, click on the poster menu above for the listings.
