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 $125.00 per night, single or double occupancy. This makes for a very affordable retreat for groups.
Schools who have participated in the past combined the experience of attending Rocky 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 2018 offers academic retreats* the following group package benefits (3 available):
• One free student registration
• 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 Rocky conference 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 15, 2018.
