Using many of the practices developed for the Spitzer 4th Conference, the organizers of the Transformational Science in the ALMA Era (Evolution 2014) workshop are working to ensure that this event is as "green" as possible. Information on this page will be updated as we work to identify opportunities to lower our carbon footprint.
The Omni Hotel is a "Virginia Green" hotel, pledging to recycle, use water efficiently, conserve energy, and offer optional linen service.
At this conference, we are doing the following:
- We will use electronic media and eliminate paper for all communications:
- Meeting advertisements and promotion (including the conference poster)
- Registration and abstract submission
- Agenda and communication among participants
- Conference Proceedings
- Where we are not able to eliminate paper, we will use recycled paper when available.
- We encourage you to use the electronic resources listed above.
- We will provide bins for recycling during the meeting. Please use them whenever possible.
Why drive? A free trolley runs every 15 minutes between the Downtown Mall and the University of Virginia.
