Meeting Logistics


Here is the logistical information for the Spring 2017 CSG Workshops and Meeting, to be held 17-19 May, 2017 at the Yale University.

As usual, you will need to register separately for rooms at the conference hotels as well as for the meeting, and to make your own travel arrangements as explained below.

Conference Hotels

Our conference hotel is the Omni New Haven Hotel at Yale. Please refer to the logistics given in the initial meeting notice to register at the conference hotel. The cut-off date for hotel reservations is April 14. Please note Yale's commencement takes place the week following our meeting; you are advised to make your reservations early.

Meeting Venue:

We will meet in Classroom 4200 in the School of Management building (Evans Hall).

Meeting Registration:

Please visit the URL given in the initial meeting notice to register for the meeting and make your entree selections for the group dinners. The cut-off date for meeting registration is May 9.

Nearest Airports:

Tweed New Haven Airport is a small airport that connects through Philadelphia. The bigger airports are Bradley, about 55 miles away; Westchester County, about 60 miles away; and the major New York airports LaGuardia, JFK, and Newark, about 90 miles away.

If taking the train, Union Station and the secondary State Street station provide service to New Haven. Amtrak will not stop at State Street Station, while some New York trains do; this station is within walking distance (0.3 miles) of the Omni. We advise taking a taxi or using a ride-sharing app to travel from Union Station to the hotel.

Driving directions and transportation options are on our meeting web page and on the Omni New Haven's web site.

Conference Meals:

Full breakfast and break services will be provided for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Group lunches and dinners will be provided on Wednesday and Thursday. Transportation will be provided between the hotel, meeting site, and the group dinners as necessary. Box lunches will be provided at the close of the CSG meeting on Friday.
