Scientists with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to participate in Keystone Symposia meetings.

Please contact Keystone Symposia Attendee Services at +1 970-262-1230 or by email at for accessibility information and additional information regarding special services and reasonable accommodations. We provide free registration to assistants or companions needed for note-taking or personal care. We also seek to provide assistance in locating preferred lodging options for persons with limited mobility and the most otherwise handicapped accessible lodging.

In some cases, especially in locations outside the U.S., accommodations for individuals with disabilities are limited, so attendees are asked to advise us of special needs and to make requests and arrangements for reasonable accommodations well in advance of the meeting.

Please be aware that this conference will take place at an elevation well above sea level!

High elevation, low humidity and stronger ultraviolet rays from the sun combine to create a situation that requires special attention to your health! For recommendations on how to prevent and alleviate high altitude sickness, please see High Country Health Care High Altitude Health Tips.
