Workshop Details
Calorimetry and Microbial Ecology
06/03/2024 - 06/07/2024
Meeting Description:

Viral and microbial mediated processes dominate the biosphere. Or do they? In practice, we really don't know because the rates of viral and microbial processes in the environment are very hard to determine. Challenges in getting accurate flux measurements range from low abundances to non-standard metabolism to difficulty in access (e.g., deep sea and subsurface environments). The goal of this meeting will be to discuss conventional and emerging technologies (e.g., highly sensitive micro-calorimetry, photonic based microcalorimetry, etc) that can improve flux measurements. Engineers and scientists interested in these tools are invited to present their instrumentation. Microbial ecologists are encouraged to bring rationale/hypotheses that would require new instrumentation. All participants are also encouraged to bring viral and microbial flux data workshop how calorimetric data will be incorporated into microbial ecology models.


IMPORTANT: Participants should be aware that this workshop runs Saturday through Wednesday. Festival lodging rates will go into effect on the night of Wednesday the 14th. To avoid the rate increase, you should depart on the 14th. If your flight out of Montrose does not leave until Thursday the 15th, we suggest eating dinner in Telluride on the night of the 14th, taking the shuttle to Montrose after dinner, and staying at the Hampton Inn (970-547-4120) next to the airport. You will receive a discount at the Hampton Inn by saying you are a TSRC scientist.

We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering.

Telluride Science is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Aha School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on Telluride Science's website. Feel free to contact Telluride Science's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
