The 2014 EPA Regional, State, and Local (RSL) Modelers' Workshop is scheduled for Monday, May 19th through Thursday, May 22nd, 2014. This Workshop will provide the federal, state, local, and tribal levels of the regulatory modeling community the opportunity to present, interact, and communicate various technical issues and solutions related to local-scale air quality modeling. A large segment of the Workshop will address issues related to permit modeling, as well as selected topics provided by Regional, State, and Local modelers. On Tuesday, May 20th, the Workshop will also be open to industrial representatives and consultants to present and engage with the co-regulating permit modeling community on cross-cutting NO2, SO2, and PM2.5 permit modeling issues. A draft agenda has been prepared for the Workshop and is available through the following link:

Please note that the 2014 EPA RSL Modelers' Workshop is open only to EPA Personnel and state, local, and tribal agency dispersion modelers on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
The 2014 EPA RSL Modelers' Workshop will be held at the Utah Department of Environmental Quality offices in Salt Lake City, Utah. The specific meeting location is:
- Multi Agency State Office Building
Department of Environmental Quality
DEQ Board Room# 1015
195 North 1950 West
Salt Lake City, Utah 84116
We hope to establish a couple of reservation room blocks at a hotel nearby the meeting facility and also at a hotel closer into downtown Salt Lake City in the coming weeks. Just as soon as any room blocks are established, we will post that information here and also send out notification through the EPA Regional Offices and other communication pathways, including the EPA's SCRAM website RSS feed. For general planning purposes, we are initially investigating the Radisson Hotel Salt Lake City Airport and the Hyatt Place Salt Lake City/Downtown, but there are numerous hotels and motels in the general vicinity of the DEQ Offices. It is doubtful that we will be able to negotiate a hotel rate below the current government rate of $103 per night (plus applicable state and local taxes) or corporate / AAA travel rates for non-government attendees. So, it is not absolutely necessary to wait for the establishment of a hotel block to make your hotel reservations.
Finally, a Workshop registration web page will be available in the near future. Just as soon as this registration web page is available, the link will be posted on SCRAM and sent out through the communications pathways previously mentioned. In the interim, please direct your questions and need for additional information to George Bridgers (firstname.lastname@example.org).
