We recommend that conference attendees stay at the Holiday Inn Flint Gateway Centre. In order to book the hotel at the University of Michigan-Flint rate, please use this link.

Holiday Inn offers complementary shuttle service between it and Flint Bishop Airport. The shuttle also takes guests from the hotel to destinations within a 7 mile radius of the hotel, which includes the conference location. At the bottom of the escalators at Flint Bishop Airport, there is a telephone available for shuttle service calls.

While the hotel does offer a shuttle, space is obviously limited to fewer seats than participants. We would like to encourage those of you with automobiles to please consider driving fellow participants to the conference from the hotel. People offering and needing rides should meet at the hotel lobby in the mornings. Please contact the hotel front desk for a taxicab if needed.


So as to focus on the content of your talks, visual presentations such as Powerpoint and Prezi are not allowed. Nevertheless, a large television will be available for exhibits only. If your talk requires exhibits, then please bring whatever cord will connect your laptop to an HDMI television.


The deadline for proposals was 31 July 2015.
