The conference will be held at the Joe Crowley Center on the campus of the University of Nevada, Reno. These great spaces will give us a chance to chat in a small setting, while still allowing us easy access to food and drink at meal times. At this time of year, Reno should be beautiful. Since this is a high desert biome, temperatures vary greatly between daytime and night time. It may be as much as 35-75 °F/5-25°C.
Attendees are responsible for their own airfare and lodging.
There are room blocks available at the Whitney Peak Hotel (Group Code SOCIA041318, price of $109 guaranteed until March 20th), which we recommend. There are also room blocks available at the Silver Legacy Hotel & Casino ($110) and Circus Circus ($90), although Circus Circus is of much lower quality. From there, it is a short walk up to UNR. We will also provide shuttles at the beginning and end of each day.
Please arrive at RNO airport Thursday (April 12) evening. There will be shuttles to your hotel going at least once every half hour.
We will have optional visits to the Fleischmann Planetarium, Lake Tahoe, and the local night life, for all who may be interested.
