New Venue! SPIE Laser Damage 2016 is being held at the Millennium Harvest House Boulder, 1345 28th Street, Boulder, CO 80302.
Cresting over the hill on Highway 36, it's easy to see why Boulder has been dubbed "the city nestled between the mountains and reality." At 5,430 feet above sea level, acres of vast open space roll into Boulder's quaint cityscape tucked into the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Boulder is just 40 minutes from Denver, and just moments from 43,000 acres of open space and trails.
