Preliminary Travel Schedule
The meeting is scheduled to be held from September 16–20, 2012, at the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Conference Center at 850 Willow Creek Road, Lake Arrowhead, CA 92352 . The facility will provide group meals, in a private dining area so the participants will have maximum opportunities for mingling and informal discussions. At this time of year, the surrounding area provides hiking and other outdoor activities which could be used during free time in the early afternoon, before poster sessions. The facility offers four tennis courts, a putting green, a swimming pool and heated jacuzzis, and acres of virgin forest and shoreline. The guest rooms are duplex cabins with a bed and private bathroom on each story. Each room contains a fireplace.
The Conference Center is located high in the San Bernadino Mountains, just two hours from Los Angeles and San Diego, about one hour away from Ontario International Airport (see the directions below).
The pickup point for the buses on Sunday, September 16, 2012, this year is the Los Angeles Airport Marriott (which is distinct from the LAX Courtyard Marriott; the key word identifying this other, incorrect hotel is “courtyard”). The correct Los Angeles Airport Marriott is at 5855 West Century Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90045 (310/641–5700). This is served by a shuttle that goes to each terminal every 25 minutes. Please verify with the shuttle driver that you are going to the Los Angeles Airport Marriott, and not the Courtyard Marriott, which is also on Century Blvd. The Marriott has a Starbucks and three restaurants, as well as a lobby, to facilitate waiting. As before, buses will leave at 2:30 pm, and 3:30 pm, so please allow time for the shuttle, finding the bus, etc. There is no charge for the buses, but one must verify a bus reservation by August 1, 2012 by emailing Dr. Jeffrey H. Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org).
One bus leaves for LAX at 11:00 AM, on Thursday, September 20. For those staying for lunch, shuttle vans will depart for LAX at 1:00 PM.
There will be sign-up sheets at the meeting for the bus and vans, and for matching people with places in their cars with those needing ride back at times other than those indicated.
