FCCM 2011: The 19th Annual IEEE International Symposium on Field-Programmable Custom Computing Machines
Location: Salt Lake City, Utah
Conference Dates: May 1-3, 2011
RegistrationThe registration website is open.
Early registration deadline: April 1, 2011 at 5 PM Mountain time.
VenueThe venue is located at Fort Douglas, located adjacent to, and just east of the University of Utah campus. Fort Douglas was built during the Civil War and most of the buildings were constructed prior to 1890 (the hotel was constructed in 1999 for the 2002 Winter Olympics). The fort is located in one of the most picturesque locations in the area with nice views of the mountains that surround the Salt Lake Valley. Most of the buildings were fully renovated for the Olympics. The university is gradually taking over the fort and now only a small part of it is actively used by the National Guard. Conference presentations will take place at the Officerʼs Club (http://www.universityguesthouse.com/Officers-Club).
HotelsThe main conference hotel is the University Guest House (http://www.universityguesthouse.com). It is a relatively small hotel located at the university and is adjacent to the buildings where the conference will be held. Individuals making their own reservations should call 1-888-416-4075 and use the group name of "IEEE FCCM" to receive the group rate. The group rate will be guaranteed until April 1, 2011.
The Salt Lake City Marriott University Park hotel is one option if the University Guest House fills up (http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/slcup-salt-lake-city-marriott-university-park/). It is very close by (about 10-15 minute walk) and the conference will provide transportation to shuttle attendees between the conference venue and the hotel. Many other hotels can also be found nearby (http://www.hotels-rates.com/hotels/locations/Salt_Lake_City/UT/usa/1666/).
TravelTravelers flying in to the conference will arrive via the Salt Lake International airport (SLC). It is a Delta hub and is well-connected both domestically and internationally. http://www.saltlakecityutah.org/taxicabs.htm describes several ways to get from the airport to Fort Douglas (the location for the conference). By car, the venue is approximately 25 minutes from the airport. Salt Lake City is probably one of the easiest cities to drive in because of its wide streets and x-y grid of streets. Addresses are essentially cartesian coordinates. Cab fare from the airport to the university is $25-$30. There are several shuttle services listed on the provided web page. There is a light-rail system (TRAX) and it has a station near the venue but you would need to take a shuttle or taxi to the station nearest the airport and it probably isnʼt worth the hassle. TRAX doesnʼt operate on Sunday.
