Detailed Program

The ILC is being held in "Bonanza" rooms A and B (BA and BB) on the second floor of the casino (full floor plans). The SPLASH keynotes (held in Rose Ballroom A, RBA) are free to all attendees of any colocated conference. The ILC tutorials are also free to all attendees of any colocated conference; however, be advised that they are practical sessions for learning lisp and its tools.

[Note: the following room assignments may not be accurate.]

Birds of a Feather

BoF meetings are common at ILCs. Room BC (seats 25?) is available for ILC activities, and it is not currently scheduled; so that may be one place to meet. Room BB may also be available Tuesday and Thursday from 8 to 10am. Please contact the organizing committee if you would like to help organize such meetings. Otherwise, the mailing list may be a good place to coordinate.
