    Conference Check - In begins at 3:00 pm. on Friday, April 7 at the Atlantic Ballroom Atrium at the Renaissance Hotel.


    We do ask that presenters bring their presentation on a USB flash drive. There will be a laptop pc in every session room. Wifi will also be available in the lobby areas and in the session rooms.


    The Saturday and Sunday sessions are either 120 minutes long with four papers or 90 minutes long with three papers. That allows 30 minutes per paper, which should be divided 22 minutes for the presenter and 5 minutes for the discussant and 3 for audience comments. A few of the longer sessions have 5 papers and there the time is reduced to 24 minutes per paper, divided 18 for the presenter, 5 for the discussant, and 1 minute for audience comments. The session chairman is usually the last presenter or discussant in the session and is in charge of keeping the session running on schedule.

    The Rising Stars sessions on Friday evening are 90 minutes and each has 3 papers, allowing 30 minutes per paper. The time should be divided 22 minutes for the presenter, 5 minutes for the discussant, and 3 for audience comments.



Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel

All sessions will take place at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel. The hotel's fantastic placement in the Seaport District locates you near many renowned landmarks, such as the Innovation District, the Seaport World Trade Center, and the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

      This hotel does not provide shuttle service.

      Transportation:

    • Water Taxi
    • fee: 12 USD (one way) ;on request

      How to Get Water Taxi Service

      Water taxis are an ON CALL service - so in most cases, if you want to ride on one, you need to call to request pickup. 

      However - if you are arriving at Boston Logan Airport, the process can be slightly different. 

      Hop on a free #66 Shuttle Bus outside your terminal and take it to Boston Logan Dock.  Once you arrive at the dock, the Dispatcher will call on your behalf. 

      Typically, a water taxi will arrive at the dock within 5-10 minutes.  But if you want faster service, you can call the company you want to use as soon as you get on the shuttle.

About Boston

Boston, first incorporated as a town in 1630, and as a city in 1822, is one of America's oldest cities, with a rich economic and social history. What began as a homesteading community eventually evolved into a center for social and political change. Boston has since become the economic and cultural hub of New England. As the region's hub, Boston is home to over 617,000 residents, many institutions of higher education, some of the world's finest inpatient hospitals, and numerous cultural and professional sports organizations. Boston-based jobs, primarily within the finance, health care, educational, and service areas, numbered nearly 660,000 in 2002. Millions of people visit Boston to take in its historic neighborhoods, attend cultural or sporting events, and conduct business.
