Conference Location

The Big Easy! The Crescent City! Birthplace of Jazz!  The City that
Care Forgot! New Orleans is known by any number of nicknames, but none
can completely describe the city.  Located at a bend in the
Mississippi River in southeastern Louisiana, New Orleans is a city
with several distinct neighborhoods. The most famous is the French
Quarter - about 10 square blocks just north of the river. The
buildings here were constructed over 200 years ago and all remain in
reasonable condition. To walk through here is to walk through time -
the streets are narrow and often damp, and with just a bit of
imagination you can picture what life was like two centuries
before. The French Market offers eclectic shops, and once night falls,
you can head to the world-famous Bourbon Street for evening fun.

This year the conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency in New
Orleans, just in time for the beginning of Mardi Gras season.  On
Tuesday evening (Jan. 14) we will have a reception to open the
conference.  On Thursday evening (Jan. 16) we will be having a banquet
at the Aquarium of the Americas.

If you are staying at the conference hotel, please be sure to mention
POPL 03 to receive the special room rate of $149/night.
