Registration will begin at 11:30 AM on Thursday, May 31, 2018.  The event starts promptly at 12:30 PM with the opening keynote.   Please plan your travel accordingly to ensure you don't miss a thing!  Registration will be in the main lobby of the Conference Center.

Driving directions and a parking map are attached.  You are welcome to park in any of the surface lots or we recommend the South Garage.  From the South Garage there are elevators that will bring you into the "Conference Center."  ADA Parking Stalls are located on P1 & P2 near the elevators.  We have also saved additional ADA Parking stalls on the surface lot directly outside the Conference Centers main entrance.
