"Apologies.  The dates should be June 13-15 with an informal reception on the evening of June 12."

The planning for the Classification Society conference is progressing well. The conference will be held from June 13-15 in Milwaukee, WI.  There will be an informal reception on the evening of June 12.  The conference will finish in the early afternoon of June 15.  We have extended abstract submission until May 20.  This is an absolute final deadline.  The conference program will be published within a week of the deadline.

Accommodation details are now fully available.  We offer three different accommodation options depending on your budget.  If you are booking the dorm accommodation then please book this as quickly as possible, as the UWM housing office needs to reserve the dorm accommodation at least 2-3 weeks before the conference.

We have an active social program planned.  The conference banquet will be held at the Sprecher Brewery on Friday, June 14.  Sprecher is famous for both its beers and its non-alcoholic sodas and the banquet includes a free tour of the production facilities.
