  • Please make your reservation by Nov 17 and request a room booked by the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory Conference for the conference rate. In order to avoid paying higher prices for the hotel room, please make the reservation before November 17. Furthermore, we have booked a certain set of rooms and if they are not reserved by November 30, the conference will have to pay for the rooms, resulting in higher conference registration costs in the future.


Transportation from Salt Lake City International Airport to Park City (approximately 40 miles) is available in all forms: bus, limousine, cab, rental car, etc. Park City Marriott Hotel provides a courtesy shuttle bus during peak periods to the ski area and downtown Park City. The fare is free and times vary with demand. Inquire at the hotel desk for further information. Park City offers a ski shuttle service from the ski area to area hotels. The fare is free and the shuttle departs the ski area on the hour and every 20 minutes with the exception of no run at 2:00 pm. Park City Marriott Hotel also provides for discount tickets for the three ski resorts in Park City.

If desired, ski rental and ski repair (e.g. waxing, tuning, and sharpening) are available at the hotel.


For the Data Blitz session (only), please give the title, presenter, and ppt slide (no more than one slide) to the session organizer.  No animations that change the size of elements, occlude elements, etc. are allowed (i.e., you may slowly uncover bits, but that is all).

    Do you know if undergraduates can present at this meeting? A student that I know of is interested in presenting at next year’s meeting.

  2. Craig

    Typically, no. Students at the meeting are typically advanced graduate students or postdocs and the nominal headcount is one per lab.
