Location & Hotel

The POPL 2005 conference site is Hyatt Regency Long Beach, 200 South
Pine Avenue, Long Beach, CA. Complete information concerning how to
book rooms and travel to Long Beach may be found at the conference web
site ( The Hyatt Regency
is right next to a variety of entertainment areas, including the
Shoreline Village, the Rainbow Harbor, and the Shoreline Marina, which
offer sport fishing, boat rentals, personal boat rentals, shopping,
great food and other diversions. For those wishing to take in some
sun this January, one can walk east from the hotel, about a 1/4 mile,
along the Shoreline Marina, to a large, sandy, public beach. In
addition, the remarkable Aquarium of the Pacific, which houses more
than 12,500 animals and offers the possibility of coming face-to-face
or even touching the world's greatest predators, is only a 1/4 mile
west. On Thursday January 13th, we will be having a tour and banquet
on the Queen Mary ocean liner. Be sure to reserve your room by
December 21st, 2004 and register for the conference by December 30th,
