Registration.
Registration is free, but in order to get an estimate of numbers for lunch, we'd ask that each attendee complete this short online registration form at the following link by Friday April 1st.
Lightning Talks.
We are currently soliciting submissions for 2-slide / 2-minute lightning talks from post-docs, graduate students, and undergraduates. These rapid-fire presentations are designed to briefly advertise your research and present recent findings to the conference attendees. Those wishing to participate in the lightning session should indicate their interest in the registration link.
Parking.
A number of campus parking lots are available for free weekend visitor parking at no charge including Lot B1 – bounded by Matthews St, Goodwin Av, and Springfield Av – located one block north of Loomis Lab. Ample metered street parking is also available on Matthews St. Goodwin Av, and University Av.
Accommodation.
For those wishing to spend the night in Champaign-Urbana, a number of accommodation options are available within walking distance of Loomis Lab. The Illini Union Hotel is located one block from Loomis Lab, and is quite comfortable and convenient. The brand new Marriott Towne Place Suites is conveniently located a three blocks west of Loomis, and is located in the heart of the student district that is very lively on weekends. The Hampton Inn by Hilton is located in a quiet neighborhood five blocks north of Loomis. For those wishing to stay in downtown Champaign, the new Hyatt Place is a good option that is a short drive or bus ride from Loomis Lab.
