Dear MMM-2008 Participants:

The conference program and schedule have already been posted under Technical Program and Schedule link on 15 July 2008. We are hoping that this will help you arrange your travel and stay in Tallahassee during the conference.

Important Travel Information:

There is a football game in town on Saturday (25 October 2008) right before the conference. On that day and the day before it, it will be difficult to find hotel rooms. The ideal day to arrive in Tallahassee for the MMM-2008 conference is Sunday (26 October 2008). There is also a homecoming event scheduled on Saturday (1 November 2008) following the conference. Therefore, conference participants will most likely not be able to stay past the 31st at any of the hotels listed below. The conference room rates for each hotel are only valid the following dates: 26 October through 31 October.
