The detailed scientific program is linked above. Some items of note:
The SPD meeting will be held on the campus of Montana State University, in Bozeman, Montana. Registration, and most of the talks, are in the Strand Union Building, near the corner of South 7th Avenue and West Grant Street -- see the map. For driving directions, visit http://www.montana.edu/cs/misc.php.
Bozeman is a university town in the State of Montana and situated amidst the Rocky Mountains in the northwestern part of the United States. Bozeman is connected by air to major airline hubs such as Chicago, Denver, Salt Lake City, and Minneapolis. The airlines that serve Bozeman include United, Delta, Alaska, and their partner airlines. The Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport code is BZN. The airport is about 10 miles (typically 20 minutes drive) from the heart of the town. Airport shuttle service (All Valley Cabs, Phone: 406-388-9999) and car rentals are available at the airport; prior reservations are strongly recommended.
Other nearby airports are Billings (about 140 miles, 2 hours drive) and Butte (87 miles, 1 hour and 15 minutes drive); no shuttle service is available from these nearby towns to Bozeman and one has to make their own arrangements, for example, a rented car. From a logistic point of view, flying into Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) is the most sensible choice.
Public transportation in Bozeman consists of a free bus service linking parts of the city: http://www.streamlinebus.com.
Shuttle service has been arranged between the hotels designated below and MSU campus for each day of the meeting.
Alternatively, the LOC will provide MSU parking tags for meeting attendees who choose to rent cars. Just let us know when you check in at the meeting.
Weather: Summertime in Bozeman is beautiful with occasional surprises such as a snowstorm (although chances of that happening are about the same as running into a grizzly bear in the middle of town). Typical temperature (high-low) ranges between 83F - 50F (28C - 10C). For updated weather information refer to this web page. (http://www.wunderground.com/US/MT/Bozeman.html)
Blocks of rooms have been reserved at three Bozeman hotels. A shuttle will run between these hotels and the SPD meeting throughout each meeting day. Be sure to mention AAS-SPD when making your reservation.
Please note that the hotels will release these rooms after June 01
Lodging is also available in the MSU dormitories, at a lower cost. For information and reservations, please direct your browser to https://regstg.com/Registration/Introduction.aspx?rid=3fddf4fc-7cb1-47d9-a2ed-1a7fdc94b09d.
