Local organizers suggest strongly that registrants reserve their flights as soon as possible. As August is the peak vacation season, the closer we get to the conference, the fewer the affordable travel options may be available. In addition, hotel rates quoted here are guaranteed until June 30 ONLY, beyond that date prices will be based on room availability.
