If you will attend the center symposium after the planning meeting, you should change to a downtown hotel as explained below for the nights of Sept. 11 and Sept. 12. We will help you with the transportation.

The site directors need to be present during the I/UCRC Planning Meeting for the Charlotte site.  The planning meeting will take place on Sept. 10-11, 2012 at the same location.



The center symposium will take place Sept. 12-13, 2012, at the UNC-Charlotte Center City Building (320 East 9th Street, Charlotte, NC), in downtown Charlotte.

    if booked by ***August 11, 2012***.
  • Please mention the "NSF Symposium" for the rate.
  • The Holiday Inn is within 5-8 minutes of walking distance to the meeting place. The hotel also provides a free shuttle to transfer guests to the meeting place (or anywhere else within 3 miles of the hotel).

We have also negotiated the same rate of $129/night for Sept. 11 and Sept. 12 at the Hampton Inn Charlotte-Uptown http://www.hamptoncharlotteuptown.com/ as a backup (the Holiday Inn should have ~50 rooms available, but just in case).

Look forward to welcoming you in Charlotte!
