You can take the question marks off 1988 and 1989. The 1982 SSE meetings were at Stony Brook, and either the 1983 or 1984 meetings were at WashU (St. Louis). The 1990 College Park meetings were also ICSEB III. ICSEB II was in Vancouver in 1980, but I don't remember whether SSE was there too. (I'm showing my age.)

Thanks, Kent! And "showing [your] age," what age?!

I started collecting the list in part because I couldn't remember where I went to the meetings in 2002.

Cheers for your brain remembering the meeting places from 25 years ago.

I had no idea it was going to be in Norman in 2011! I look forward to hanging out at the old alma mater, and agreeing with everyone when they complain that there's nothing interesting to do. With any luck, we may even get a couple of crazy-ass protesters. Fun!

Is it possible that no one who reads the blog can remember or access the SSE meeting locations from the 1970s and 1980s?

1984 Crested Butte, Colorado
