SciX presents a fantastic opportunity to connect with old friends and colleagues, as well as making new connections. With social events that include a welcome mixer, student night, and a special Wednesday evening event, providing entertainment for all, you'll want to come early and stay till the very end. Both SciX and society-specific social events will be updated here as they become available.

SciX Bicycle Ride

For those who are interested a group of SciX cycling enthusiasts will going on a bicycle ride around Palm Springs on Sunday morning at 8:00 am. The planned ride is a ~29 mile (46 km) loop, with 1,000 feet (335 m) of climbing, taking us north of Palm Springs and into Desert Hot Springs and back with views along the way of stunning mountains, vast deserts, and even a few wind turbines.

Bicycles can be rented from Bike Palm Springs, located very near the convention center and delivery of the bikes to the hotel can be arranged.
