S2I2 HEP/CS Workshop 2016 /

December 7-9, 2016


The workshop was located on the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign campus. We reserved blocks of hotel rooms with excellent rates for this workshop. Links to reserve rooms at the negotiated rate were provided where possible.

For eligible participants**, the S2I2-HEP Conceptualization Project paid for the cost of lodging for a limited number of rooms in the three hotel blocks ("Workshop Hotels" below) provided that you were in attendance to the workshop. If you were unable to attend the workshop and failed to cancel your reservation, then you will be responsible for the hotel charges.

**Participants from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Princeton University, and the University of Cincinnati were not eligible to have their lodging costs for attending this workshop covered by participant funds in the S2I2-HEP Conceptualization Award. Other attendees are eligible.
