9th ICPS Conference USA
Posted 21 April 2011 - 20:15 PM
The New England Carnivorous Plant Society (NECPS) is thrilled to announce that we will be hosting the 2012 International Carnivorous Plant Society (ICPS) conference. The conference will be held August 11-13, 2012, with field trips following for several days afterward.
The conference will be held at the Johnson and Wales University Inn in Seekonk, Massachusetts. The hotel and conference center is owned and operated by a renowned culinary and hospitality school. See http://www.jwinn.com/ for more information on the venue. There are several rooms reserved for our group.
Our location is just 6 miles from downtown Providence, Rhode Island. With its airport, bus stations, and train station, Providence is easily accessed by both domestic and international travelers. We are also near two large international airports â€“ about 3 hoursâ€™ drive from New York City and about an hour from Boston.
More details on the conference will be announced as they become available. To join an e-mail list to receive conference announcements, please send a message to Emily Troiano, NECPS Vice President, at emily.troiano (at) gmail (dot) com.

is there already a plan for the field trips? What cps are growing in that area and what will they look like in August?
I was hoping to have the conference a bit more south as this would have given a chance to reach some of the famous places more easily, which would have been for sure a good point to attract more people from overseas. Anyway, i hope to be able to join the conference ;)

Their proposal was chosen as the best offer. However. the location doesn't mean anything for quality of fieldtrips and of course there might be people willing to offer additional guided tours so to speak to those willing to travel.
I had great fieldtrips after the Sydney conference, but had a real party after taking a plane from Sydney to Perth for a week of Dew-hunting Let's wait for the program first, shall we?

I don't have all the information yet. In the September issue of CPN there is the info as known ATT but that issue hasn't dropped in my mailbox yet and I guess neither anywhere else in Europe so the main points in that publication are:
Conference will be held 11 - 13 august at the Johnson and Wales Inn/conference centre. This is near Providence and they offer a group rate ($99/night).
The fieldtrips will follow the conference, not much details on them yet except that the NECPS is looking at the NJ Pine Barrens and the famous Green swamp NC.
