Accommodations and Travel

Accommodations for the 2018 meeting will be provided by the conference hotel, The Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass. Located in Chandler, AZ, along the Gila River on preserved American Indian land, this conference hotel is sure to offer a unique retreat in 2018 in addition to hosting a comprehensive scientific program.  Conveniently located just 11 miles away from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, we are excited to share this undeveloped, natural land on a desert landscape with stunning views with our attendees.
