2004 WNAR - International Biometric Society Annual Meeting
June 27-30, 2004 Albuquerque, NM
(Specific Information on housing, invited sessions, short course, and abstracts )
The 2004 joint WNAR/IBS meeting will be held June 27-30 at the University of New Mexico, in Albuquerque.
The campus is located approximately two miles east of downtown Albuquerque, two miles north of the Albuquerque International Airport, and 10 miles west of the Sandia mountains, which border the eastern edge of the city. Albuquerque provides a unique blend of historic attractions, multi-culturalism, outdoor activities, and native cuisine, and serves as a gateway to the nearby cities of Santa Fe, Taos, Acoma, and the numerous pueblos of the Rio Grande Valley.
Early summer weather in the high-desert environment surrounding Albuquerque tends to be hot and dry during the day (low to mid 90's), but with cool evenings (low 60's).
Local accommodations will be provided by the Doubletree Hotel in downtown Albuquerque and through the University of New Mexico housing office.
