    Meeting Place and Registration <>

    There will be a registration desk and in the UNL City Campus Union<> from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm<>. A fee of $5 (students) or $10 (faculty) will be collected from those attending the Friday dinner. Information packets will be provided at the registration desk. Anyone on campus should be able to direct you to the union. <><>

    Parking <>

    Arrangements will be made for participants who are not from UNL to park in the multi-story parking structure just west of the football stadium on the UNL campus. If you are arriving in Lincoln via Interstate 80, you should take the Downtown Lincoln Exit (onto I-180). It is difficult to miss seeing the football stadium on your left as you enter downtown Lincoln from I-180. Stay on I-180 past the football stadium until it becomes 9th St. Then turn left on P and left again on 10th. Proceed north on 10th street, keeping to the right hand lane as you pass "Q"street and you will see the stadium (and the parking structure) on your right. We conjecture that anyone in Lincoln will be able to direct you to the football stadium. You need to collect a parking ticket from a machine as you enter the parking structure: if you bring this to the registration desk we will issue you vouchers that you can use when leaving the parking structure on Friday and Saturday. If you miss getting one of these vouchers, all is not lost: it costs $5 to park in the parking structure for the entire day. It is impossible to park anywhere else on campus on Friday unless you are incredibly lucky and find a parking meter somewhere. The alternative to this is probably to leave your car at the Town House if you are staying there and walk to campus: it is approximately a 20-minute walk. <><>

    Accommodations <>

    The workshop has reserved blocks of rooms for Friday, November 7 at the Town House Mini Suites, 18th and "M" Streets, 402-475-3000, and at the Holiday Inn Express, 14th and Cornhusker, 402-435-0200. (The Town House is adjacent to downtown Lincoln and within one mile of the City Campus; the Holiday Inn is approximately 2 miles due north of City Campus.) Rooms will be available to workshop registrants at no charge (double occupancy) as long as they last. You will need to check off the appropriate item on the registration form to request a room. <>
