Plan on joining us for the 71st Northeastern Corn Improvement Conference (NECIC) on February 15-16, 2018. The conference will be held at the Boyce Thompson Institute on the Cornell University Campus. Housing will be available at the Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Ithaca. The conference will begin at 8 am on February 15 and end at noon on February 16. This will be an excellent opportunity to network on key research issues related to corn improvement in the Northeast US and Canada.
Registration fees cover the conference, plus two continental breakfasts and lunch on the 15th. Note to Canadian participants: all fees are in US dollars since we are using the Cornell University finance system.
Early Registration by January 31, 2018
Regular: $100.00 US
Graduate Student: $ 80.00 US
Late Registration (after February 1, 2018)
Regular: February $120.00
Graduate Student: $90.00 US
Note: We are experiencing a delay in getting an online registration link set up but should have one soon. If you are considering attending, please email Greg Roth (firstname.lastname@example.org) your contact info and I will send the link to you as soon as it is ready.
A block of rooms has been reserved for our conference attendees at the Hilton Garden Inn in Ithaca NY (http://hiltongardeninn3.hilton.com/en/hotels/new-york/hilton-garden-inn-ithaca-ITHIGGI/index.html ). Room rates are $129 and should be good until at least Feb. 1 and likely after that.
