We are pleased to announce our upcoming symposium in celebration of Lance's 70th birthday (which has been dubbed "The Symbosium" by Dan Thompson, M.S. UAlbany 2012) as well as the registration site for the Saturday night banquet. The event will be April 19-20, 2013. All are welcome

Click HERE for the schedule of talks. Note that while most of the talks will occur in D'Ambra Auditorium in the Life Sciences Building, we will move to the Earth Science Building's Maproom on Friday afternoon after George Chen's talk concludes at 2:20 PM. For many of you, this will be the first chance to see our electronic maproom, which was commissioned in 2006. We will wrap up Friday's proceedings with a map discussion.

We have partnered with the UAlbany Alumni Association who have provided invaluable assistance in creating a registration site for the banquet Saturday night at the Wolf Road Holiday Inn in Colonie, where many of you may already be staying. Please go to and scroll down to the April 20 Lance Bosart Symposium & Dinner and fill out the form. For logistical reasons, if you are attending the banquet you must register and pay via this registration page. If you are bringing a guest, you can choose and pay for his/her meal choice at the same time.

In order that we have an accurate count of meal choices, we ask that you kindly register and choose your dinner by Friday, April 12.

We all hope you can attend the Saturday evening's festivities, but if you only plan to attend the talks, please reply to Chris Thorncroft ( and Kevin Tyle ( to that effect.

We (and Lance) are very excited about the Symbosium and look forward to seeing you all in a few weeks!
