Knotting Mathematics and Art: Conference in Low Dimensional Topology and Mathematical Art


Participants should make their own arrangements directly with the hotels,
and are responsible for payments, unless otherwise instructed/requested by organizer(s). Many double rooms are available, and participants could arrange
their roommates if they wish. Those who share a room with other participant(s)
are asked to register all names who will share the room, so that anyone can check in.

Blocks of rooms are reserved at discount rates for our conference at the hotels listed below. The reduced rates are available during 10/31/07 - 11/06/07. Participants are encouraged to make reservations early as weather in November is very pleasant and hotels may be booked fast by tourists. Reservations must refer to "Knotting Mathematics and Art'' to ensure the listed rates. Reservations for reduced rates can be made by phone, and some hotels have FAX forms. We expect that most do not take reservations for reduced rates by E-mail or on-line.

There are deadlines to get these rates, as well as the total number of rooms available at those rates. Most of these hotels provide a "confirmation number'' upon reservation. The following list of hotels is arranged from the closest to the farthest from the campus. All, except the last one, provide shuttle transportation to campus.
