Hotel Information
Up to 20 accepted doctoral students will have all meeting fees waived (inclusive of the IAS Midyear Meeting fee) and the IAS will cover lodging at the conference hotel on Wednesday and Thursday nights. The rate for these nights is $69 per night plus taxes and fees. Additional doctoral students will be required to pay the Midyear Meeting fee at the student rate but will have consortium fees waived. Hotel accommodations will be reimbursed AFTER the meeting, provided that the student attends the full consortium and Midyear Meeting.

Accepted new faculty will have consortium fees waived but will be required to pay the Midyear Meeting fee.

Consortium attendees should make their reservations directly with the hotel and will need to provide a credit card number to the hotel. The deadline for hotel reservations is January 3, 2022 but we cannot guarantee that additional rooms will be available once our block of rooms is sold out, even if the block is sold out before the deadline. If a participant is unable to attend the meeting, they must cancel the hotel reservation in advance to avoid a cancellation penalty.

Travel to and from the meeting is not sponsored by the IAS.
