Next Year's AIHce Returns Stateside to Denver
Mark your calendars. AIHce 2010 will take place May 22-27, 2010, in Colorado’s “Mile High City” with the Rocky Mountains serving as backdrop. It will be the 71st edition of the conference and only the second time it has ever been held in Denver, which was a much different city when the 30th AIHce was held there, back in the spring of 1969.
These days, as AIHA describes it, Denver is "a place where engineers rub elbows with rock climbers at local brewpubs, at art festivals, or while strolling along downtown's 16th Street pedestrian mall--located directly outside the Convention Center." Home to seven professional sports teams, 2,000 restaurants, 850 miles of paved biking and walking paths, 200 parks, and 90 metro area golf clubs, the city "offers an affordable mix of urban sophistication and outdoor adventure," AIHA adds.
Online registration and hotel reservations for AIHce 2010 will open in December, but two important deadlines happen before then for those planning to be involved. August 15 is the deadline for the call for Professional Development Course proposals, and October 6 is the deadline to submit technical papers, poster abstracts, and roundtable programs.
For those who would like to share their expertise by being a presenter, an online submission site will open next month. Meanwhile, details for next year's event are being stockpiled at www.aihce2010.org
