Housing accommodations for participating students will be covered by the KICP.

The I-House has dormitory style housing with shared baths. Students may sign up for housing at the I-House on the Registration page.
TOPICS & PRESENTATIONS In keeping with the goal of encouraging the broadest possible participation from young researchers in Great Lakes institutions, the scientific program has been largely driven by the topics which participants choose to present. Please check back later for the detailed program. It is preferred that presentations at GLCW X be directly relevant to one of the following topics:
- Dark Matter (direct and indirect detection)
- Dark Energy
- Large Scale Structure
- Cosmic Microwave Background
- Galaxy Clusters
- Dark Ages
- Dwarf Galaxies
- Galaxy Evolution
- Modified Gravity
- 21 cm Emission
Talks are grouped into 1.5-2 hour sessions comprising both contributed talks by GLCW X participants and talks by invited speakers. In order to ensure compliance with the schedule, time limits will be strictly enforced, so we request that you plan accordingly. There will also be a poster session.
Copies of the talks (slides only) presented at GLCW X will be made available on-line at this web site.
There will also be a one hour career development session during the workshop.

VISUALIZATION SESSION Participants have the opportunity to submit visualizations and datasets to be viewed at the Adler Planetarium either on the Planetarium's dome or in a high definition stereoscopic theater. Please consult this document with instructions on preparing visualizations for Adler's theaters. Please contact Mark SubbaRao with your plans. Because of the work required to encode and load the data, please plan on submitting the content at least one month in advance of the workshop.
