   For those looking for accommodation on the night of May 5th, we have secured a $135+tax rate at    Best Western Plus in Goleta, which offers shuttles to and from campus. Just call and mention the    SCSS conference at KITP to get the special rate.

   For those looking to participate in the gong show, send an email to Edgar Shaghoulian to sign up.
   All are encouraged to participate!

   Visitor parking is allowed only in particular lots, highlighted here. The top floor of Lot 10, located
   directly across from KITP, also has "VIP" permits that you are allowed to purchase and use to
   park ONLY on the top floor. If space is available (which is often the case), this is the best choice.

   Special thanks to Cori Montgomery for help with organization and Glenn Schiferl and Patrice
   Tonnis for website hosting and original design.
