The Seventh Biennial ASEC conference will be held at Miami University in Oxford Ohio from 9 to 11 March 2017. For those flying, the university is a bit over an hour drive from either Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport (CVG) or Dayton (DAY), so it is worth checking flights to both because prices do vary, especially for domestic flights. There are shuttle services that will take one back and forth from the airport. Hopefully we can coordinate so that if groups of people are arriving around the same time, they can ride together. Feel free to discuss any travel questions with Scott Kenworthy (firstname.lastname@example.org) and send your travel plans to him if you wish assistance getting to Oxford from the airport.
Accommodation is booked at the Marcum Center on campus. Call 513-529-6911 to make reservations and ask for “Havighurst Center Conference” rooms before February 9, 2017. Unfortunately rooms are rather expensive for Friday and Saturday nights ($195 for King Single), less for Thursday ($112). There are a limited number of double rooms, which we particularly encourage graduate students to book (we can help coordinate you). There are a few other hotels in Oxford (The Elms, the Hampton Inn, Best Western, and the Baymont Inn & Suites if you have a car), but there must be another event on campus because they all seem to be pretty booked up. There are also some possibilities through airbnb.
For graduate students who would like to receive financial assistance for travel, please contact Scott Kenworthy (email@example.com) with your request that includes a budget of your travel expenses and how much you will receive from other sources by Dec. 31, 2017.
