****Updated Information concerning SCC Accommodations:****

Greetings SCC Teams

Unfortunately, due to a situation that was beyond the conference’s control, we will have to make some additional adjustments to your current housing accommodations.

Rest assured, you and your team have a room for the duration of the conference.  However, you will be housed at either the Marriott Convention Center or the Courtyard at New Orleans Downtown/Convention Center, both are across the street from the New Orleans Convention Center, when you arrive UNTIL Sunday, November 14.

Upon check-in, you will receive vouchers for breakfast and directions to obtain complimentary internet access in your room.  However, on Sunday, November 14 you will have to check-out (by 1pm) and check-in (no earlier than 3pm) to the Hilton Riverside as your most updated housing confirmation states until your original departure date of 11/19/10.

Hilton New Orleans Riverside
2 Poydras St
New Orleans, LA 70140

****update - the Hilton Riverside IS within walking distance of the New Orleans Convention Center.  You can exit out the north entrance of the convention center and it is approximately .3 miles to the Hilton.****

As an added service to make this transition a little easier, we will provide complimentary travel from the airport to the Marriott.

After you pick up your luggage at baggage claim, please report to the nearest Airport Shuttle Ticket booth.  You will find ticket booths in terminals 3, 6, and 12.  Each of the ticket booths should have a SC10 IEEE sign on its desk.  The Airport Shuttle ticket booth will have your name and the hotel you are staying at.  You will receive a ticket and they will direct you to your designated shuttle, which will take you to your hotel.  Make sure they give you a ticket to get on a shuttle that will take you to your correct hotel.  The shuttle does run 24 hours and the ticket booth is always manned. Your shuttle cost TO the hotel will be covered, however, you are still responsible for your travel back to the airport on your departure date as your SCC travel policy originally states.

In addition, To assist you with your departure, we suggest you make arrangements for your departure from the Hilton Riverside to the airport at least 48 hours in advance.

The move to the Hilton Riverside Hotel on Sunday, November 14 will require that you check-out of the Marriott Convention Center by 1pm. Once you check-out, a shuttle from your hotel to the Hilton Riverside will be available to you from 7am to 5pm to help you with your move and assist you with your luggage.  Please do remember that you cannot check-in to the Hilton Riverside until after 3pm. If you do take the shuttle to the Hilton Riverside hotel before the 3pm check-in time, you can check-in your bag with the Hilton Bell Desk and return after 3pm.  As with your previous hotel, you will receive information regarding the internet access and a breakfast voucher for the week upon check-in.

We sincerely apologize for the difficulties that have occurred with our accommodations for the conference this year. However, we are sure you will enjoy the accommodations provided to you as well as the conference. The SC10 and SCC committees appreciate your patience and we look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
