Science and GIS - Accommodations
The Residence Inn State College (Marriott)
has a block of rooms on hold for CSISS workshop participants
for the dates 18-25 May 2003. It is anticipated that most
attendees will arrive on Sunday, 18 May and that some may
wish to stay through the following Sunday to take advantage
of a Saturday-night stay-over.
Workshop participants must make their own reservations
for accommodation (the group ID being used by the hotel
is CSISS). The room rate is $79.00 per night (plus 8.5% tax).
This is a very competitive rate. Participants who wish to
stay elsewhere will be responsible for their own local transportation.
