To plan your travel: The conference sign-in will start at 7 AM, Friday, February 14, with presentations from 9 AM - 5:30 PM. February 15, Saturday, 9 AM to 4:30 PM. Both days include on-site lunch.
A note about cars: Street parking near the conference hall is difficult and restricted to two hours on weekdays. Conference parking is limited and expensive. We recommend that you walk from your hotel, and if that's too far, use a ride-share to the conference. You're free to use your car, of course, but as at most universities you'll be competing with many others for parking space.
Our recommended hotels are below. Many AirBNBs are also available in the area.
