Drought Research Initiative

DRI Workshop #3

The Rocky Mountains provided the backdrop to the 2008 DRI Workshop, which was held in Calgary, AB on January 17-19, 2008.

More information can be found on the City of Calgary website, or Wikipedia.

The agenda for the 2008 conference is available below.

As a result of the interactions with the media during and after the Workshop, the following results have occurred:

The 2008 DRI Workshop #3 will be held at the Sheraton Suites Calgary Eau Claire, located in the heart of downtown Calgary.

A block of 40 rooms at a conference rate has been set aside for workshop attendees; reservations can be made by calling 1-888-784-8370. These rooms will be held until December 21, 2021 or until the block is taken so please book your room early (please indicate that your reservation is for the Drought Research Initiative Workshop). Rooms may be available after this cut-off date, although reservation requests will only be accepted at the Hotel's prevailing rate, based on availability. It is also important to note that all attendees will be responsible for reserving and paying for their own room; a credit card number will be required at the time of reservation.

Please consider staying at the hotel, as it is not only convenient but guarantees a reduction to DRI in the cost of the meeting rooms.
