SIAM has selected Travel Leaders to assist attendees in making travel arrangements. To book your reservations through Travel Leaders, contact Amy Hueber at 215-643-6585. Be sure to mention that you are attending the ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete Algorithms. Travel Leaders will issue your ticket and mail it to you. Travel Leaders office hours are 8:30 AM-5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time. Due to the expense ($20) for this service, you may wish to go to the Web directly and purchase your own tickets to San Francisco.
No matter how you choose to book your flight reservations, please be advised that SIAM has enrolled in US Airways Corporate Dividends Program. The SIAM US Airways membership number is CDN125335. This program hopefully will ensure that you will receive the best air fare possible at the time of booking.
Radisson Miyako Hotel is 20 minutes from the airport. Super Shuttle provides reliable, economical, door-to-door ground transportation from the airport to the hotel. Collect your luggage on the lower level of the airport and proceed to the upper level, outer island. Look for the blue Super Shuttle sign and the customer service representatives dressed in blue and gold jackets on the outer island, in front of the US Airways or the United Airlines terminals. Your fare from the San Francisco Airport to the hotel should be around $20. Advance reservations are required for the return trip to the airport; call 1-800-258-3826. Taxi service is also available; approximate fare to downtown area should be about $40.
Many major car rental companies have offices inside the airport terminal. You can make your arrangements when you arrive at the airport, or Travel Leaders can assist you in making rental car reservations at the time you make your flight reservations. We suggest that you ask the rental company for directions or go to your favorite Web site for maps and driving instructions. http://www.mapquest.com/ or http://maps.yahoo.com/ are two sites you may wish to utilize.
