Forwarded from Buzz Rigsbee.  There are two points I'd like
to highlight:

If you want to stay at the Hyatt Regency (where the meetings
will be held), don't be dismayed at the current sell-out situation.
Get yourself on the waiting list.  We usually see about a
10% cancellation rate in the two weeks before the meeting,
so rooms will probably become available.

Second, if you haven't been to San Francisco recently, please
be aware that there is a brand spanking new BART (Bay Area
Rapid Transit) station at San Francisco International Airport.
Direct train service runs from the airport to the
Embarcadero BART station, which is about 1 block from the
Hyatt. The fare is $4.70 one way, and both of the trains that
operate from the airport stop at Embarcadero. You will probably
have no need for a rental car during the week, and parking and traffic
are terrible (and parking is terribly expensive).  Take BART,
taxis, and the cable car (the world's only municipal roller coaster)
to get around town.
