This is the link to the registration form. Note: the online registration is now closed; you can register on Monday, July 23rd at the registration desk outside of A201 in the Clark building between 12 and 1:15 pm or later by filling in a paper registration form we will supply and transfer to the conference services.

On-Campus Accommodation

Note: As of July 17 registration for on-campus rooms is closed.
A block of single and double rooms (see layouts) is reserved at Summit Hall ( J see map) in the CSU Academic Village (see picture below) for afternoon arrival on Sunday, July 22nd and departure on Friday, July 27th. (earlier arrivals/later departures can be arranged individually)

The single and double occupancy packages include breakfast and lunch (Monday, July 23rd through Friday, July 27th) at the Ram's Horn dining facilities and the free use of the University Fitness and Recreation Center (G) as well as parking passes. The building locations are marked on this printable campus map.
Roommate requests will be honored only when both parties select each other as roommates. If a mutual selection is not entered online or on the registration form, no roommate will be recorded and you will be charged the single room rate. Participants who do not pre-register as roommates but wish to room together must check in together.

Off-Campus Accommodation

Among the hotels within walking distance of the conference venue and the town center are the Armstrong Hotel (A), the Hilton (C), and the Best Western University Inn (B). Note that there are two Best Western hotels in Fort Collins, but only the Best Western University Inn is near the CSU campus. Because it is vacation season, early booking is highly recommended.

Blocks of rooms have been reserved (under "AD2012") (blocks expired on June/22/12) with the Hilton ($109 per single room/night, $119 per double room/night) and the Armstrong (standard (one queen-sized bed): $79 per night during the week, $149 on the weekend; 2-bedroom suites: $115 per night during the week, $179 on the weekend).

We do not have a specific reservation at the Best Western; the best rates are available via consolidator websites (currently $93 per day during the week of the conference). There are also some "bed and breakfast" inns in Fort Collins at varying prices and distances from the campus. The following three B&Bs are marked in green on the map above and received good reviews: Sheldon House B&B (D), Inn at City Park (E), and Edwards House B&B (F).


Most major airlines offer connections to Denver International Airport (DEN). For the local transport:

Financial Support

Through funding by SIAM, we can offer two student and two post-doc/early career travel awards at $550 each. Additionally, the awards allow a partial reimbursement of the registration fee at $50 for students and at $150 for post-docs. The students and post-docs have to come from a US institution. Informal applications should be sent by e-mail no later than April 30th.

Through additional funding by the US Department of Energy we can offer a number of smaller travel support awards to students. These awards are not restricted to students at US institutions. Informal applications should be sent by e-mail no later than April 30th. The number of awards and the amounts are to be determined.
