Caltech Center for Comparative Planetary Evolution (3CPE) is sponsoring a retreat for postdocs. The aim is to help the postdoc community around 3CPE get to know each other better and build links between people in different departments. We now have a plan and need numbers so we can get booking!
Dates: Friday 12th to Sunday 14th June 2020
Location: Mammoth Mountain, CA
Plan: Friday: Leave Caltech sometime on Friday afternoon depending on people's schedules and drive to accommodation in Mammoth. Dinner either en route or at accommodation, depending on arrival time. Saturday: Breakfast. Short intro talks from all participants. Lunch/early afternoon activity - e.g., hikes of various lengths or chill out in the accommodation. Late afternoon/evening activity - drive to Owens Valley Radio Observatory: tour of facility, dinner, talk by faculty members, stargazing! Sunday: Breakfast. Geo-tour back to Caltech, stopping with lunch.

GRAD STUDENTS: If you're a 4th year+ grad student and would like to come, please sign up but we cannot guarantee a place as priority will be given to post-docs. Places to grad students will be given in the order they signed up, depending on how much space we have, and we'll let you know by March 31st if you have a spot.
