Carpooling and Room-sharing
This is the page for attendees to find each other, to share rides (those who are driving in) and to share rooms at Radisson RTP hotel.
When buying flight tickets, you want to fly into the Raleigh-Durham (RDU) airport and then call the hotel to send the free shuttle to pick you up. Transportation to and from the hotel, airport and conference venues will be provided for free. Also, check out the restaurant options near RDU, from quick and cheap to leisurely and upscale if you intend to get some meals on your own. And then try to do some of the Science/Nature things in the Triangle, NC while you’re here.
