Special workshop rates end mid-August.  Please book soon to avoid disappointment!


The Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh, where our symposium is held, is the academic and healthcare center of Pittsburgh.  It is home to the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, Chatham University, and Carlow University, as well as to the Phipps Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, Schenley Park, and several large hospitals.  


There are many hotels in the area within walking distance of our meeting venue.  Blocks of rooms and suites with kitchenettes have been held for the symposium at the hotels listed below.


Please note the following: 

  • If you wish to arrive earlier than the block start date of September 3rd or stay later than September 8th, let your hotel know.  You may be able to extend the group rate for those days.

  • If you are staying on a weekend, the weekend rate is likely to be higher.

  • Most of the hotels are within comfortable walking distance of the conference venues.  The hotels also offer complimentary shuttles.

  • Rooms release from the block in early- to mid-August.

  • Additional (and more expensive) options include the boutique Mansions on Fifthand the upscale The Oaklander, which is next door to the venue.
