Book early! Rooms may disappear soon because the conference weekend coincides with a home football game.
(The football schedule was changed after we made arrangements to have the conference this weekend.)
Please note that the Purdue Homecoming Football game was moved to the weekend that the Swinburne Conference takes place. We were too far into the planning process to be able to move dates and space. Booking your hotel room in advance is highly recommended.
