Updates on SPEP and Hurricane Sandy

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

We are excited to proceed with the annual SPEP conference. Travel in to Rochester has been fine from all airports not affected directly by the storm. Additionally, some buses and trains are running even in those cities hit the hardest.

For those of you looking for alternate forms of transportation to Rochester, please see the following link: http://goo.gl/H4K71

We have also provided links to show any changes to the main program and the satellite sessions as these come in. Please refer to the following for details:

Travel safely!

At this point in time, the annual conference is scheduled to proceed as planned.

We believe it will take more than a hurricane to interfere with philosophical inquiry.

However, we urge those attending the conference to look in to their travel plans and, where appropriate, make alternate arrangements to Rochester to avoid delays and cancellations where possible.

We have gathered some resources that may assist as you coordinate your travel plans on our Hurricane Sandy at SPEP Resource page.

We will use the main page here for updates on any change of plans for the conference, so please monitor this site for the most up to date information.
