A light breakfast of pastries, fresh fruit, meats, cheeses, yoghurt and coffee will provided each day of the workshop. Mid-day, a lunch will be provided on-site. After the last session each day, attendees typically self-organize for visits to local restaurants. We will convene for a formal dinner and organizational meeting (all attendees are welcome) one of the nights of the workshop. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions for catered meals.
A list of bed-and-breakfast inns, hotels and motels will been provided. There are several other options available, including a number of local AirBnB providers.
The 2018 meeting location will be on the University of Michigan Central Campus. There are two possible rooms in two different buildings possible at the moment, and we will announce the specifics once the choice has been settled.
Unless you are staying directly in Downtown Ann Arbor or the University of Michigan campus area, you will want to to arrange transportation. Rental cars can obtained from the airport, but all major brands also have Ann Arbor locations for pick up and drop off. Several taxi services are available. If you’re near a route you can also ride the excellent local bus service.
There is very little chance of street parking on weekdays on the University campus, but there is a public parking structure nearby on Forest Street.
