CPASW 2008





Meeting venue

The Friday Center - the spacious Conference Center operated by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill .


All lunches and the Reception and Dinner will be held in the Friday Center and are included in the registration fee.





All oral sessions will have available a podium with microphone, a laptop and a LCD Projector.  If you need any other audio-visual equipment (a range is available, but at an extra charge to the presenter) please contact Peter Robinson ( as soon as possible.

The Poster Session will have a series of large surfaces capable of supporting push-pins or similar holding devices.



A block of rooms has been reserved at the Marriott Courtyard, within a short walk of the Friday Center .

Our original block of rooms was filled.  However, the hotel has made available a few more rooms at the Workshop rate, available until February 18.  Check directly with the hotel.




There is no convenient public transportation from Raleigh-Durham International Airport to Chapel Hill or the Workshop location.  For the period from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Monday March 3 we will operate a shuttle van and taxi/pool system.  Look for the portable CPASW sign in the baggage claim area: 

Terminal A near Baggage Claim #1 (if arriving on Southwest and you see signs for Baggage Claim 4 & 5 only, follow Parking Garage)

Terminal C near Baggage Claim A

 We will get you to your destination as expeditiously as possible.


The Chapel Hill Region


The Friday Center and the Courtyard Hotel are a couple of miles from downtown Chapel Hill .  There is frequent free bus service between them. Downtown parking is possible, but as crowded as most downtowns in a college town.
