Where will the actual forum meeting occur?  I cannot determine from
this thread if it is at the Residence Inn or the Oregon Convention
Center.  Logistical complications may restrict where I can stay in
Portland for MPI+SC09.

http://meetings.mpi-forum.org/Nov_2009_logistics.php does not contain
this information so if there is a better place to look, please let me
know what it is.

> There is a room block that will be available Tuesday to Friday night the week of the MPI Forum.  The procedure is changing a bit this time (I will send a note out to the entire list with details) so while we reserve the block of rooms, people are responsible for calling the hotel and actually getting a room out of the allocation.  This will be available this coming Friday, 10/2.  There was a change in how ORNL handles CC numbers (we don't anymore - they go straight to the CC company) and it has taken a while to iron out all the kincks ...  Does this help ?
