2006 39th Annual Meeting
July 29–August 1, 2006
Qwest Center Omaha, Hilton Omaha
Welcome to San Antonio for SSR’s 40th Meeting!
San Antonio is a great city for a meeting! It combines modern and convenient meeting facilities with immediate access to unique attractions, including the world-famous San Antonio Riverwalk, the historic Alamo, and an unlimited selection of multicultural restaurants and nearby attractions.
All our scientific sessions will be held on the third floor of our host venue, the Marriott Rivercenter Hotel, allowing you to move quickly and easily among sessions. This hotel sits at the edge of the Riverwalk, lined with restaurants, bars, shops, and other attractions. Sampling the Mexican food alone will keep you well filled during your entire stay! The historic Alamo, only a few blocks from our hotel, is the “must-see” attraction in San Antonio.
Our opening night reception will be held at the nearby Institute of Texan Cultures where the multicultural character of our city will be on display for all to see. A special optional excursion to the beautiful Texas Hill Country is planned for Monday evening. Finally, on Tuesday evening, our barbecue and dance will be held at historic Sunset Station, (the original train depot of the Southern Pacific Railroad), located just blocks from our hotel. With all of this at your fingertips, you should enjoy ample opportunity to learn about the latest developments in our field, catch up with old friends and new colleagues alike, and generally enjoy the unique character of San Antonio as much as those of us who live here year-round. Have a great time!
