All events will be on the Duke University campus. Room locations and parking information will be posted here when available.


There are 30 rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn Durham/University Medical Center for $159/night. “Our hotel is 16 miles from RDU International. This said, we are not able to offer an airport shuttle. We do offer a courtesy shuttle within a 5-mile radius of the hotel. I would suggest using Lyft for an inexpensive alternative to get passengers from the airport. Lyft is a partner with Hilton as well, so you can earn points when you add your Hilton Honors number to your Lyft profile.” – Jason Berry, Director of Sales. All rooming lists are due 30 days prior to arrival. All individual reservations need to be made 30 prior to arrival.

There are 35 rooms at the Residence Inn Durham McPherson/Duke University Medical Center Area for $174/night. “Our shuttle only runs a 3-mile radius around the hotel.” – Jennifer Parkes, Director of Sales. Reservations by attendees must be received on or before 02/03/2023.


The registration fee is $5 for undergraduate students, $20 for graduate students (MA or PhD), $25 for part-time faculty or unaffiliated researchers, and $35 for full-time faculty.
