We have requested a block of rooms at the Millennium Hotel in Boulder at a rate of $92/night (plus tax of approximately 10.25%). The room rate includes a continental breakfast. Buses will be provided by NCAR for transportation to and from the conference site (UCAR's Center Green campus.)

The room block will be held until June 22, 2006.  Thereafter, additional reservations for group guests for the meeting dates will be accepted on a space-available and rate-available basis at the meeting rates.  Room rates apply three days before through three days after the meeting dates. Rooms book quickly in the summer, so make your reservations early.
