I'm pleased that everyone is looking forward to the conference in Rochester.  The ARSC program committee, Local Arrangements Committee, and Education & Training Committee, among others, are working hard to finalize arrangements. We hope to have the hotel registration link active within a couple of weeks, and will be updating the website to include registration and preliminary program information by the end of February.  I will notify the list as soon as various links on the conference webpage are activated.

We work very hard to hold down costs, and as a result the annual ARSC conference is an incredible bargain - far less expensive than other professional conferences.  We anticipate that registration rates will be very similar to last year's rates, which are available here:

The hotel rate this year will be $123 single/double, with free parking and free internet access!! We are also planning to add a roomshare/rideshare link to make it easier for people to stretch their budgets by sharing hotel rooms and carpooling. 

Any other questions/requests can be sent directly to me at the address below.

Rochester is going to be a great conference! More details, including an update on the pre-conference Copyright Workshop, will follow soon.

Subject: Conference cost, details?

Greetings list members,

At what time does conference registration cost information become available for this year's event in Rochester? Interested in attending my first, need to submit a budget to my department head.

Please advise the new guy if you're so inclined.
