Accommodation information

The meeting will be held on the beautiful UAB Campus at the newly renovated Hilton Birmingham at UAB (formerly DoubleTree by Hilton) located at 808 20th Street South in Birmingham. The Hilton rate is $128 and will be available to conference attendees 3 days prior to and 3 days after the meeting. Breakfast is included as well as complimentary WIFI, complimentary airport and area transportation (within a one-mile radius of the hotel) via the hotel’s shuttle. Onsite self-parking will also be available at $5 per day, and since most of the meeting events will be held at the hotel or on or near the campus, we don’t anticipate the need of anyone having to move their vehicle so that parking fee should be a onetime cost.
