From Barbara Emery (emery at ucar.edu).

The annual summer CEDAR Workshop registration is now open at http://vsp-rosebud.dls.ucar.edu/cedar/ and linked at http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/2013_Workshop:Main through the main Workshop page. The meeting will be held at the Millennium Hotel in Boulder, CO, including all the student lodging and poster sessions.

There is a free educational CEDAR-GEM Workshop the Saturday and Sunday between GEM in Snowmass, CO June 16-21 and CEDAR. GEM participants are encouraged to sign up for this free event in the Millennium Hotel so a CEDAR-GEM participant list can be produced and numbers for catering are accurate. The CEDAR Student Workshop is Sunday June 23 next to the second day of CEDAR-GEM. CEDAR Student Workshops are open to non-students, so GEM or CEDAR non-student participants can attend if they desire for free.

All the requested workshops (and 2 more expected) will be scheduled, where workshops of CEDAR-GEM interest will probably be scheduled for Monday or Tuesday. The Ionosphere-Thermosphere poster session is Tuesday while the Mesosphere-Lower-Thermosphere poster session is Wednesday on the Draft Agenda. The known plenary speakers are listed.

Millennium Hotel special rates are available until Friday 31 May, which is also the deadline for early non-student registration. Students should sign up for their lodging at the Millennium on the registration form, and must register by Friday May 17.

From Barbara Emery (emery at ucar.edu).

There are two mini-meetings at the Millennium Hotel in Boulder, CO on Monday April 15 that take advantage of Space Weather Week http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/sww/ on April 16-19 also at the Millennium.

The CEDAR-GEM CCMC Challenge (http://ccmc.gsfc.nasa.gov/challenges/GEM-CEDAR/) meeting is from 8-noon in half of the ballroom. We will review the progress from our last meeting at the June 2012 CEDAR Workshop (http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/2012_Workshop:CEDAR_ETI_Modeling_Challenge) including some of the work presented at the mini-GEM workshop on Sunday December 2. We will then present work performed since December, including looking at outputs from different AMIE runs, and finish with future plans. Please contact Barbara Emery (emery at ucar.edu) if you plan to attend to help define catering numbers accurately. Please contact Ja Soon Shim (jasoon.shim at nasa.gov) if you want to present anything.

The Power Grid meeting meets in half of the ballroom from 1230-5PM. There are some special invitees who are encouraged to sit near the front, but observers are welcome to come also. Please contact Bill Murtagh (william.murtagh at noaa.gov) if you plan to attend to help define catering numbers accurately.

Our apologies for those who have already made their plane reservations and cannot attend. Contact us later in the week at SWW to get caught up.
