Note that the 2006 Annual takes place over election day.  Request an absentee ballot quickly.

We regret that the Hilton Austin is sold out for Friday, November 3 through Sunday, November 5.

We have blocked additional rooms for those nights at:
Austin Marriott at the Capitol
* 701 East 11th Street 
* Austin, Texas 78701 USA 
* Phone:   1-512-478-1111 
* Fax:   1-512-478-3700 
 We would very much like you to move to the Hilton for Monday through Wednesday (or whatever nights you need).  Our reasons are below.

"Why You Should Stay at the Conference Hotel? 

* Center of conference activity.
* Opportunity to network and socialize.
* Short “commute.” You can easily go back and forth between conference rooms and own room.
*  Carefully negotiated discounted room rate based on:
o the total conference service including workshops, tutorials, and plenary sessions.
o number of expected attendees.
o other factors such as experience with room usage at prior conferences.
* Good rates next year. Unfilled rooms can cost ASIS&T thousands of dollars. For the next conference, we cannot negotiate as beneficial a hotel contract, and the registration fee as well as the room rate might increase unreasonably.

Please support the conference and ASIS&T by staying at the conference hotel.  (Adapted from ACM)
