Did You Know?

Your support in staying at one of these hotels helps keep the conference costs down, which directly affects your registration fees. SIAM guarantees the hotel that we will fill a certain number of “room nights” (rooms per night) during the conference.  SIAM incurs penalties if too many attendees opt to stay in other hotels in the area or neglect to indicate to the hotel that they are with the SIAM conference.

Welcome Reception

When making your reservation, remember that the Welcome Reception is scheduled for Sunday, July 8, 6:00 PM-8:00 PM. This is an excellent networking opportunity!
