For our “veteran” attendees, there are some changes from recent years.  The meeting will be held at the Hilton Austin Hotel (500 East 4th St) in the downtown area, about 1 mile south of the university.  A block of rooms is being held at a special rate.  The Sunday night and Monday night social events will take place.  Tuesday evening is now a free evening.  There will instead be an informal lunch at the conference site near the meeting rooms.
