      Following repeated requests from the Obama Administration to stimulate the
      environmental business sector, and demands from the G20 Summit that we save
      the world from imminent economic collapse, the PEST Conference organizing
      committee (John Doherty, Jim Rumbaugh, and myself) has agreed to extent the
      early-bird registration and abstract submittal period through May 1st!

      The first-ever PEST Conference will be held in The Stained Glass Hall of the
      Bolger Center, Potomac, Maryland ( <http://bolgercenter.dolce.com/>
      http://bolgercenter.dolce.com/) November 2nd through 4th, 2009. The goal is
      to bring together modelers from a variety of disciplines to discuss inverse
      modeling - i.e., parameter estimation and uncertainty analysis - with a
      focus on the PEST suite of programs, and seek input from modelers on inverse
      modeling needs to guide future code development. The conference will
      commence with a message from John Doherty, the developer of PEST, and will
      follow with morning and afternoon sessions, each commencing with a key-note
      address given by a noted modeler. A poster session will be held one evening.
      Oral and poster submissions will be summarized in extended abstracts and/or
      full papers, published in electronic proceedings distributed on thumb
      drives. The conference will wrap-up with a question-and-answer session
      during which attendees will be able to ask questions and provide suggestions
      for future development directions. Keynote speakers include John Doherty
      (developer of PEST), Ghislain DeMarsily (developer of the Pilot Point
      technique), Jim Rumbaugh (ESI, developer of Groundwater Vistas), Jasper
      Vrugt (Los Alamos National Laboratory), and Randy Hunt (US Geological
      Survey). A one-day "Introductory PEST Course" will be held immediately prior
      to the conference, and a two-day "Advanced PEST Course" will be held
      immediately following the PEST Conference.

      Conference details including information on abstract submissions, early-bird
      discounted registration, accommodations, and the pre- and post-conference
      courses can be found at:
