Ed Miles, Co-Director and founder of the Climate Impacts Group and Center for Science in the Earth System and former director and current professor at the School of Marine Affairs, is retiring in June 2010 after more than 35 years of service at the University of Washington.
Please join us on Friday, June 4, 2010 for a celebration of Ed's achievements and contributions to the global community. Details on the symposium provided below.
1 pm - Panel Presentations and Discussions
Registration is not required if attending only the afternoon session. If you would like to attend the dinner, please contact Adrienne Karpov at (206) 616-5350.
Payment Methods. We can accept payment by personal or institutional check or by purchase order. Unfortunately we are not able to accept credit cards at this time. Payment can be mailed to the CIG (see details on registration page) or made at the door.
Help Support Student Participation. Because we want to make it possible for Ed's students to attend the full symposium, we have offered current SMA students a reduced registration fee. Therefore, we ask that you please consider making a contribution to the School of Marine Affairs gift fund to help defray this cost. This is a tax-deductible contribution. If you would like to do so, please make a separate check payable to the University of Washington and indicate the amount on the registration form.
We would like to invite you to share your stories about Ed, your comments and reflections on his contributions to the various fields he has touched throughout his career, as well as any good wishes you might share as he transitions into this new phase of his life. We will take your “celebratory writings” and create a publication---a kind of informal festschrift---to present to Ed. These writings will also be included in the symposium proceedings. (Please send private messages directly to Ed.)
Please send your writings for the celebration publication no later than June 25, 2010 to:
You can also submit them by email.
For more information, please contact the UW Climate Impacts Group via phone (206-616-5350) or email.
