NEMO 2005

Tom Brann will be hosting NEMO this year on the coast of Maine. The dates are November 2-3rd. The venue is the Stone House Conference Center operated by the University of Southern Maine and located in Freeport Maine. The conference center is situated near the end of a peninsula in Casco Bay surrounded by farmland and a short walk to Wolf Neck Woods State Park. Please take a few minutes to peruse the pictures and links at the Stone House web site.

We will have more information on the specifics as time goes by so please continue to check this web site for updates. A lobster and clam bake is planned for one evening. The weather should still be delightful in early November, though an east breeze can provide a good chill so plan accordingly. Some suggestions on places to stay are listed on the agenda link for 2005.

For those interested in Maine history, the Freeport Historical Society has a good web site. And L.L.Bean is just down the road. Freeport is approximately a two to two and a half hour drive from Boston, Manchester, NH, or Bangor ME, all of which have airports. Portland also has a small international jetport and is less than a half hour away from Freeport.

NEMO 2004

NEMO 2004

This year NEMO was hosted by Tim Gregoire ostensibly at the Yale Myers forest on October 28-29. In actuality, we  outgrew the classroom building there and met at the Eastford Baptist Church, our thanks to Pastor Whiteman for hosting us on such short notice.


SAF continuing education credits (Category 1) for this year's meeting are as follows...

10/28/04 = 3.5
10/29/04 = 5.0

Next year NEMO will probably return to southern Maine in October, Tom Brann has offered to host the meeting.

NEMO Philosophy

NEMO was organized by foresters with an interest in quantitative methods to provide a place where, once a year, we could get together and share some of the important research, policy, and practical concerns in the northeast. The guiding principle has been that the meetings should be casual, yet professional and open to all with an interest. To that end, we have encouraged holding meetings at locations where it would be within the reach of all, including graduate students. Our success rate in meeting these goals is pretty close to 100%. In addition, the level of presentation is encouraged to be gentle and accessible to all, while not sacrificing content. Graduate students are especially encouraged to think of NEMO as a friendly place to get feedback on their proposed research work.

Though we founded NEMO to provide a place to share information of regional interest (the northeastern U.S. and Canadian Maritime provinces), anyone is welcome to come and join in the discussions or offer a contributed talk, as many topics transcend regional boundaries. As the agendas for previous years will attest, we have had attendees from other parts of the country, with the 2000 meeting being a joint meeting in cooperation with the Midwest Mensurationist Organization, and 2003 with the Southern Mensurationist Organization.
