End

Plan is that in Sessions 1, 2, and 3 the various speakers will talk about a research problem they’re currently working on. These are not necessarily “polished seminars”, but rather ideas that, hopefully, will create interest from the audience, and possibly potential collaborations. In Session 4 the speakers will describe some of the centers and P01 grants that are currently active and/or being planned.

The retreat will be held in the Golden Gardens Bathhouse, the main building at the park.

Located in Ballard on Puget Sound, this popular park offers extraordinary views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.  A recent project restored two wetlands, established a short loop trail, and restored the northern beach. Golden Gardens offers strolls along a rugged coastline, hikes through forest trails, sunbathing on sandy beaches, fishing from a pier and a boat launch.
