We recommend a package for room, breakfast and dinner. Attendees can choose a lodging package only, but the complete package is the preferred choice: Dining together as a group is an important component of the conference, fostering interdisciplinary collaboration and information gain.

Lodging reservations should be made early, starting in the fall of 2014.

Reservations must be made with a password that will be provided by the organizer upon request: email These reservations require no deposit or payment until one week prior to ASIC. Full payments need to be made at or before that date: Such payments can be refunded until one week prior to ASIC but then are non-refundable.
