June 18-21, 2006 · Monterey, CA

Hotel Information

Lodging and Meals

The 2006 Radiation and Health Conference will be held at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, California, a beautiful ocean-side getaway. Asilomar is a place for tranquility and harmony-a perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The grounds are just minutes from Monterey and Carmel, approximately 120 miles south of downtown San Francisco (about 105 miles from San Francisco International Airport), and about 75 miles south of San Jose. Local taxi companies service the Monterey Peninsula Airport, as does the Monterey-Salinas Transit bus system.

Lodging is available at Asilomar if reserved by April 17, 2006. Lodging rates include all meals for the registrant; meals for guests staying in the same room are covered by the guest registration fee. A nonrefundable $60 deposit will be charged at the time of reservation. Reservations become final on April 18, 2006. The full remaining lodging balance will be charged at that time and is nonrefundable. After April 17, reservations will be accepted only if space is available. Please contact Donna-Renee Arrington for availability information.

Those who choose to lodge elsewhere will be charged $45 per day to cover meals and facility fees. These administrative fees are required by the Asilomar Conference Grounds for all non-boarding registrants. These charges will be processed on April 18, 2006 and are nonrefundable. All changes and cancellations must be submitted in writing to the ASA Registration Department (Email: ASAInfo@amstat.org).

Asilomar offers a variety of accommodations scattered throughout the forest and dunes. Many buildings feature common living rooms appointed with fireplaces, over-stuffed chairs and window benches. All lodging rooms have private baths. There are no televisions or telephones in the rooms, however, the Asilomar business center is available for your computer, photocopying, faxing, and internet access needs.

Historic Guest Rooms: Historic rooms are located in buildings that were designed by architect Julia Morgan and built between 1913 and 1928. These rooms have hardwood floors, some with wood-paneled walls as well, and brass headboards. All of the historic lodging buildings have a common living room with a fireplace for lounging and reading.

Standard Guest Rooms: Standard rooms are more modern in decorating style than historic rooms and include carpeted floors.

Climate and Attire

The weather is mild year-round. Asilomar's mid-day temperatures average 60-65 degrees Fahrenheit. The attire for all conference events is casual. Dressing in layers and bringing a warm sweater or lightweight jacket is recommended. Also, you may want to bring an umbrella, as there is an occasional shower or two during even the best weather days.
