Because parking is very limited in the area around the meeting and training site (Union South / SSEC; see Google map), we encourage you to travel to and from it by a means other than car. Options include walking (the three hotels in the Lodging and Transportation section below are between 100 feet and 1.0 mile from Union South), using your hotel's van/limousine service, taxi, or using the Madison Metro bus service (base fares are currently $2.00). If you must park, see the Google map for the locations of two suggested UW lots - 80 and 17 - and the UW Transportation Services Visitor Hourly parking page for additional information (e.g., access, rates and payment methods) about those lots.
A limited number of rooms may be available at the Federal rate. Federal Government employees should call to ask about availability of these rooms. You will also be required to present your Federal picture ID at check-in.

Note: SSEC reserves the right to modify or cancel the meeting and/or training sessions if the number of registrations do not meet that needed to sufficiently cover the costs. The registration deadline is April 6th, and any decision to cancel the meeting and/or training will be made by April 13th. SSEC also reserves the right to limit the number of attendees per site or organization due to limited space in the MUG Meeting facilities (auditorium and computer labs).
