The 2019 meeting will take place at the LSU Student Union, located at the corner of Raphael Semmes Rd. and Highland Rd.
The Student Union is located in the middle of campus, a 10-minute walk from the Lod Cook conference hotel. A convenient path behind the Cook Hotel leads through campus directly to the Union. Click this link for a map.
For those who wish to drive directly to the conference site, there is a limited number of parking spaces for visitors in the LSU Union Square Garage, located directly across the street from the Union. Spaces are available for visitors on the second, third and fourth floors every day from 7:00 am-8:00 pm and cost $1.50 per hour.
Please be aware that some streets in the center of campus are gated and may only be accessed by LSU faculty and staff during the day; please plan your driving route accordingly. For more information, please see the LSU Visitors parking page.
Lunch options Conference participants will have the opportunity to choose from the Union’s myriad options for lunch; dining options range from coffee and smoothies to pizza, sandwiches, bagels, Chinese, and even local fare. See the Union’s dining page and the LSU Dining menu page for further details. Additionally, participants may walk a few steps across the street to the LSU Faculty Club to enjoy an elegant, sit-down lunch.
Banquet We will be holding a conference dinner banquet on Friday night. We invite all conference participants to take part in the banquet and enjoy each other’s company and the wonderful catering we have planned. The banquet will be buffet-style and will feature a variety of different dinner options, including some local southern Louisiana favorites. Options will be available for those with dietary restrictions. If you would like to attend the banquet and have specific dietary needs, please contact the organizers.
