Philly 2009: Program, restaurants, registration

The Philly 2009 website now offers a PDF conference program in grid format to download. While changes may still take place, this is an excellent start to planning your conference experience.

Click here, then click "Program" in the left sidebar. At the top, see the download message and click.

If you've been wondering about where to eat during the conference, a new section has been added. "Where to Eat" can be found at the bottom of the left sidebar of the conference homepage. Categories include those places quick and close, one or two blocks away, three to five blocks away, recommended, kosher, markets, prepared food and takeout.

Registration hours are now set for the Conference Registration Desk at the Sheraton Philadelphia City Center Hotel. Attendees who have already registered online can pick up their conference materials beginning Saturday night, August 1, after Shabbat, from 9:01-11pm, and again from 7am on Sunday, August 2. On-site registration runs from 7am-5pm each day except Friday, when hours will be 7-11am.

Try to pick up materials as early as possible as lines get longer on Sunday.

Remember to sign up online for the added-fee computer workshops, the Friday workshops and SIG lunches. These special events fill rapidly, so don't be disappointed and do register as early as possible. Don't forget about the Thursday banquet with its IAJGS Achievement Awards and entertainment. Early arrivals to Philadelphia may be interested in the Saturday evening welcome dinner so they can meet others and begin to network.

Already registered? Go to "Registration Update." If you are a new registrant, go to "Registration" and follow the instructions.

See you in Philly!
