1999 Fall Meeting: Press conferences and special events


Field Trip for Press Room Registrants
Sunday, December 12 (12:00 noon, Howard Street Entrance to Moscone Convention Center, between 3rd and 4th Streets). See Media Advisory 1 for general information. All who registered for the Press Room by December 18 and checked that they wish to participate in the field trip on San Francisco Bay are hereby confirmed. A very few openings remain.

Due to the large response, there will be two cruises. Half the group will be briefed at the USGS Marine Facility in Redwood City while the other half sails on the Polaris; then the two groups will change places. Both USGS and AGU incur significant costs for this program, and it will be held rain or shine, so if you have signed up, please don't be a no-show.

Dinner plans: Following the conclusion of the field trip at USGS Menlo Park, we will go to the same nearby restaurant as last year, Chevy's (tex-mex), for an early supper. As last year, we each order individually, but the total check will be divided evenly, including tax and tip. Harvey Leifert will pay the total bill to the restaurant and receive reimbursement from each participant (cash or check) at the restaurant. Please be sure to have enough bills and coins to make exact change in the $20-25 range (estimate, based on last year's cost). Harvey will provide receipts to those who need them in the Press Room on Monday.

Address by Dr. Rita Colwell, Director, National Science Foundation
Monday (5:15 PM, Room 134 Moscone). Dr. Colwell will speak on "Complexity and Connectivity: A New Cartography for Science and Engineering." She will comment on the increasing links between biology and earth sciences (a theme of this meeting) and call for scientists to further expand their connections both within and beyond the scientific community.

Chui Highlights Holiday Dinner of Northern California Science Writers Association (NCSWA)
Monday (6:30 PM, Gordon Biersch restaurant, 2 Harrison Street).
