Dress for the conference is business casual. You may wish to bring a light jacket or sweater, since we cannot control the temperature in some of the rooms we will be using.

Please note that similar to previous conferences, this year's meeting is closed to the public. Also, since we have already contracted for a specific number of rooms and meals, we will not be able to accept on-site registrants or additional guests.
