Meeting Location

The meeting will be held in the NASA Regional Planetary Information Facility at the Hawaiˋi Institute of Geophysics and Planetology on the University of Hawaiˋi Manoa campus. The meeting location is on the 5th floor of the Pacific Ocean Science and Technology (POST) building at 1680 East-West Road. Parking (for a fee) is available in the nearby Lower Campus Parking Structure.

Lunch is independent of the meeting. Participants may choose from dining facilities on campus, off-campus locations within walking distance, or can drive to the large variety of restaurants available in Waikiki or other nearby eateries.

Hotel Information

A limited number of rooms have been reserved on-campus at the East-West Center, which is about a 10-minute walk from the meeting location. A single room with a twin bed, shared bathroom, and kitchen is $33/night. A bigger room with a queen bed, its own kitchen, and bathroom is $85.00/night. Information on reserving a room at the East-West Center will be available in the next announcement. Those who do not wish to stay on campus or who want to bring their families to enjoy a beach setting can choose from a wide variety of hotels in Waikiki, both on and off the beach. The University of Hawaiˋi (UH) has a discount guest rate at a hotel at the foot of Diamond Head, which often proves popular with visitors. UH can provide help with this reservation when needed.
