POSTED March 22, 2005: Over 750 people attended GWS2005! It was a stimulating week, with people from a wide range of backgrounds in natural and cultural resources sharing their experiences in over 130 sessions. You can use the links above to explore what happened in Philadelphia. Or, if youd like a hard copy of the 180-page Program and Abstracts Book, send us a check for $2.00 to cover postage and well be glad to send one while supplies last.
POSTED May 10, 2005: You can download a PDF slide show with over 300 images from the conference taken by Charles Rafkind of the USNPS. Chucks pictures really capture the atmosphere of the conference week.
Once youve downloaded the file which, be forewarned, is large, about 36 Mb just use Adobe Acrobat (full version) or Acrobat Reader to open the file. You should get an Adobe Picture Tasks plug-in box. In that box, click Play and the slide show should launch. To quit the show, hit ESC. Each slide should appear on screen for 5 seconds before cycling on to the next image. Viewing the whole slide show should take about 2530 minutes, depending on your computer.
Dont miss out on the 2007 conference send an email to email@example.com and well make sure you get notified when the Call for Proposals comes out in the summer of 2006.
