Meeting Venue

The Meeting will utilize the following two adjacent hotels, Hotel La Fonda and at the Inn and Spa at Loretto, in the heart of Santa Fe (Map).

A block of rooms has been reserved at both hotels at the conference rate of $100/night. Both room blocks are limited with rooms available on a first-come, first-served basis. The cut-off date for reservations is 12 noon (MDT), June 13, 2011 or when the room block is full, whichever is earlier. Please note that Friday and weekend stayovers may incur a higher rate. For reservations, contact:

  • Hotel La Fonda (800) 523-5002 - request the Federation for Earth Science Information Partners rate or provide the rate code 667054.
  • Inn and Spa at Loretto (800) 237-2926 - request conference code 10B4XA.


Two airports serve the Santa Fe vicinity:

  • The Albuquerque airport (ABQ) is 65 miles from Santa Fe and is served by most major airlines. Transportation from ABQ to the Meeting hotels is available via:
  • The Santa Fe airport (SAF) is served by American Eagle airlines with direct flights from Dallas and LA.
  • Taxi service and rental cars are available at SAF.

Emergent Sessions

(formerly 'open meeting' sessions)
We will continue to offer emergent meeting capabilities throughout the Santa Fe. Rather than devoting a single day to this concept, this capability will be offered during the entire meeting. There will be space available for attendees to gather on the fly, around a table to have a discussion about a timely topic. This capability will be supported by the tweet stream, on-site postings and announcements during meeting gatherings.
