TRAVEL RECOMMENDATION:  For those unfamiliar with Baltimore, MD, this city is very close to the US national capital, Washington, DC.  DC is a terrific vacation destination.  The hotel will honor the conference rate for several days on either side of the conference, so you may wish to plan a visit to Washington, DC as part of your itinerary.

* Note that AXYS members get a 10% discount from the "retail" registration rate, and the fees cited are member prices.
Since membership is only $25/year ($10/year for individuals with the condition), the cost of membership is more than covered by the discount on just one registrant.
