Abstract: The International Society of Arachnology and the American Arachnological Society invite you to the 20th International Congress of Arachnology to be held in Golden, Colorado USA “Where the West Lives”! Golden was settled in the mid-19th century when gold was discovered in beautiful Clear Creek. The town quickly became an important supply stop for miners seeking their fortune in the gold and silver mining camps high up in the mountains. It became the capital of the Colorado Territory in 1872. In 1876, when Colorado became a state, Golden vied with Denver for the honor of becoming the new state’s capital city but it lost, much to the chagrin of its business owners. Golden is just a 15 minute drive to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Attendees should plan to arrive July 2nd. That evening, attendees will be welcomed at an evening social on the Colorado School of Mines campus. The oral and poster sessions will be held July 3rd through 5th with a mid-week excursion scheduled for July 6th. The evening of the 4th of July, attendees will enjoy a barbeque on the grounds of the campus followed by fireworks. After the mid-congress excursion, attendees can relax in horse drawn carriages as they are transported to the various brew pubs in town or they can be dropped off to enjoy the traditional Russian Party. After another day of talks on July 7th, attendees will be taken to the Butterfly Pavilion for an evening social event. The last day of sessions will be on Friday, July 8th followed by a banquet at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Attendees interested in visiting the DMNS arachnology collection will have an opportunity to do so that day. Attendees should plan to depart on Saturday July 9th (except those planning on attending the post-congress excursion). [Information of the supplier]
