Event Details


Morning registration, the keynote address, tabling, and poster presentations will take place in the Young Student Center at Keene State College. Oral presentations will take place in both the Student Center and the Putnam Science Center.

Parking & Directions

Conference attendees are welcome to park in any “Faculty/Staff” (FS) or “Commuter” (CC) lot on the KSC campus. Do not park in any lots marked “Residential.” Parking is free, and you do not need a permit or pass. The nearest parking lots are the Student Center and Science Lots (which are both accessed via Winchester Street) and the Elliot Lot off Wyman Way, as seen on this campus map. Important note: the best GPS address to use for the Student Center is 24 Madison Street, Keene.

Food & Drink

The conference fee includes locally-roasted coffee, a light breakfast, and afternoon cookies. Gluten-free options will be available. To keep registration fees low, lunch is not included. We have a full day planned, so we strongly encourage in-person attendees to bring a bag lunch or to purchase food from one of KSC’s on-campus dining options rather than traveling off-campus during our short lunch window. The Zorn Dining Commons is located next to the Student Center, and has both dine-in and takeaway options; lunch at the Zorn costs $10.25, payable at the door via cash or card.

To minimize waste, we will not be serving bottled water. We encourage attendees to bring a refillable water bottle; filtered water refilling stations and water fountains are available in both the Student Center and Science Center.

COVID-19 Precautions

Masks are welcome, but not required. Please respect individual decisions about mask-wearing. Online attendance options are available for the keynote and all oral presentations.


All event spaces are wheelchair-accessible, and accessible parking is available in both the Science and Student Center lots. Accessible and gender-neutral bathrooms are available in both the Science and Student Centers, and both buildings have elevators and push-button-activated door controls. Microphones will be used for the keynote and all oral presentations, and closed captioning will be enabled on Zoom. In addition, a private room is available for nursing mothers or others who need a quiet, private space.
