Hotel guest rooms:
For those who wish to stay at the hotel, some rooms are blocked at the Sony negotiated rate of $140. In order to get that rate, you must make your reservation through Sony (send your name, dates, and credit card number & expiration date to Dick Scheel -mailto:Richard.Scheel@am.sony.com). The cutoff date for the blocked rooms is April 4. You are also welcome to make your own arrangements. These blocked rooms are offered as a convenience to you. The number of people who use them will not affect our costs.
Since many attendees live in the San Jose area, we will have a separate meeting fee rather than build the fee into the room rates. The meeting fee will be announced several weeks before the meetings.
*** We will not have the ability to collect the meeting fee by credit
*** Cash, check or money order will be necessary. ***
We will have a PC video projector available at all meetings, and an overhead projector at all meetings except the P1394b task groups.
Continental breakfast, beverages, and afternoon snack will be provided. Attendees will be on their own for lunch.
