CCMC 2014 Workshop


The 7th CCMC Community Workshop was held at the Annapolis Marriott Waterfront Hotel, Annapolis, Maryland on March 31 - April 04, 2014.

Biennial CCMC community workshops are designed as opportunities for an in-depth exchange of experiences, opinions and needs between model owners, science and operational users, agency representatives and the CCMC staff.

Make your hotel reservation (book by 02/28/2014; special conference rate is $101 per night). We expect no conference registration fee.
