Academic Retreat - An Affordable Opportunity
Plan an off-site retreat, bring your colleagues to Rocky and SAVE!
This is the perfect opportunity to roll your conference attendance funds into a very affordable academic group retreat experience in the spectacular setting of the Colorado Rocky Mountains - during ski season!
Rocky registration rates are among the most reasonable in computational biology, the conference hotel accommodations are well under $100 per night, and domestic travel fares are the lowest they have been in years.
Last year four schools from California to Indiana each combined the experience of attending Rocky together for education and group activities on the slopes, at the hotel, and in Snowmass and Aspen Villages. Education and bonding were abundantly fun and memorable, and all left with a renewed sense of inspiration and collaboration. Rocky’09 is now offering academic retreats* the following group package benefits:
- One free student registration ($185 minimum savings)
- One free suite upgrade ($200 minimum savings)
- Two free ski lift tickets per group or $100 food & beverage credit at the conference hotel
- Special scheduling of flash presentations for all members of the group to ensure a full morning or afternoon can be spent outside the conference for a group activity if desired (activity not included)
* Academic retreats are defined as a minimum of 10 or more paid attendees from the same school, staying in the conference hotel a minimum of two nights (single or double occupancy), and utilizing at least 5 sleeping rooms per night. All academic retreat offers noted above must be secured by November 11.
