The 1988 ACM LISP and Functional Programming Conference will be held at the
Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort at Snowbird, Utah. Snowbird is a world
renowned resort in the mountains near Salt Lake City that offers outstanding
skiing in the winter and a variety of recreational activities including
hiking, climbing, swimming, and tennis in the summer. Summer temperatures
typically range between 60 F and 80 F in the day and 30 F to 50 F at night.
Sweaters are advisable for evening wear.
The meeting rooms, book exhibits, and guest rooms for the Conference will
all be housed in the Cliff Lodge, which features an eleven story glass atrium
with a cocktail lounge and restaurant overlooking the rugged Peruvian Gulch.
The Lodge includes four restaurants offering a wide variety of cuisines.
The entire Snowbird complex includes seventeen full-service restaurants,
lounges, and fast-food operations. You will also have access to the Cliff
Lodge Health and Beauty Spa, which offers an array of services ranging
from the unique (herbal wraps, parafango treatments) to the stimulating
(whirlpool, steamroom, saunas, roof-top heated swimming pool, aerobics
and weight training).
You can make room reservations with Snowbird's Central Reservations Office
by calling (800)453-3000 or (801)532-1700. Snowbird requires a deposit for
one night's lodging within ten days of booking. The deposit will be refunded
if the room is cancelled within 48 hours of arrival. If you book reservations
by June 24, 1988, you are entitled to the following special rates: $64 for a
single occupancy; $70 for a double occupancy; $104 for a deluxe bedroom,
single occupancy; and $110 for a deluxe bedroom, double occupancy. To receive
these special rates you must mention the ACM L&FP Conference when you place
your reservations. Each additional person will be charged $6 per day;
children under the age of 16 may stay for free in a room with a parent. These
rates are available from Saturday, July 23, 1988 through Friday, July 29,
1988, permitting conference attendees to extend their conference stay into
a short vacation. Some possible activities include rock climbing lessons,
backpacking trips, and helicopter tours.
Delta Airlines, which has a major hub in Salt Lake City, is offering
special round-trip fares to North American conferees of the 1988 ACM
Conference on Lisp and Functional Programming. First, Delta will allow an
additional 5% savings off published round-trip fares within the United States
and San Juan; and for passengers not qualifying for any published discounts,
Delta will allow the following two (seven-day advance purchase) discounts off
unrestricted round-trip coach fares: 40% from domestic cities and 35% from
Canadian cities. Delta also serves Europe and Japan.
To take advantage of these discounts, call (800) 345-1647 (within
Indiana (800) 822-4730; from Canada (812) 333-3360 collect) and ask
for Lana. The Internet address may be used for initial contact, as well
(firstname.lastname@example.org); include daytime phone number and hours.
These fares are valid from July 23 to July 30, 1988.
Snowbird is located 31 miles or 40 minutes from the Salt Lake City
International Airport, and is easily accessible by taxi, car, bus (or
helicopter). Various transportation companies provide van and motorcoach
service to Snowbird. For four or more people, the current van cost is $10
per person. Limousine and car rental service is also available as well as
City Cab, Ute Cab and Yellow Cab (Cab fares should be about $42).
Conference activities will include a reception Sunday night and a
chairlift ride to an open meadow for a BBQ lunch on Monday. Tuesday's lunch
will includea tram ticket and a box lunch. You can ride Snowbird's 125
passenger aerial tram to the top of the 11,000 foot Hidden Peak, with its
spectacular view of the Wasatch Mountain Range and Salt Lake Valley.
You may either hike back down where you will have the opportunity of seeing
historic silver mine shafts from the 1800's, or you can make the return trip
by tram. That night will include the banquet dinner on the Pavilion.
Advance registration for the Conference is $225 for ACM and SIG members
(SIGPLAN, SIGART, or SIGACT), $250 for ACM or SIG members, or $290 for
non-members. Advance registration cutoff is June 24, 1988. After June 24,
fees are $275 for ACM and SIG, $300 for ACM or SIG, and $350 for non-members.
The registration fee includes a copy of the proceedings, the reception Sunday
evening, luncheons on Monday and Tuesday, refreshments during the breaks,
continental breakfast Monday through Wednesday, and the Tuesday night banquet.
Speakers and program/conference committee members should use the $225 rate.
Extra banquet tickets can be purchased for $40.
Student advance registration is $75 for the Conference (June 24
cutoff date), and $100 for late registration. The student registration fee
does not include the lunches or the banquet. On-site registration will be
accepted Sunday evening, and during the conference. We hope you will enjoy
your stay at Snowbird and we are looking forward to seeing you at the
