June 19– 23, 2016
On behalf of the IEEE IAS PPIC Local Committee, we would like to invite you to the 62nd Annual Pulp, Paper and Forest Industries Technical Conference in Austin, TX and the Westin Austin at The Domain our host hotel. This will be the first time that the conference will be held in Austin, Texas, "The Live Music Capital of the World" and it will be one to remember!
After the daily technical conference programs, we will need your help to continue to, "Keep Austin Weird". Austin offers a divers experience ranging from the live music scene of downtown 6th street to Formula One Racing and bat watching.
Austin is also a city with no shortage of history or legend. In fact, both are very much alive throughout the city and it isn't just found in the architecture, monuments and museums. It's in Texas' last true dnace hall, the Broken Spoke, in the gas station-turned-diner, Threadgill's, where Janis Joplin once sang, and in Barton Springs, a natural poool in the cetner of town, first discovered in the 17th century to name a few!! More information on the capitol city of Texas can be found here, click here for information on Austin, TX.
We are also planning to take advantage of our great Austin location to have a very entertaining Guest / Spouse program. Tours will begin in the morning after breakfast and finish by early-afternoon, allowing some free time for shopping, additional site-seeing, golf or a rest in the hotel. For those who don’t want the guided tours, a do it yourself registration will be available that includes the Sunday reception, breakfast Monday – Wednesday and the awards luncheon on Wednesday
Paper Awards Dinner will occur on Wednesday for our evening meal, awards for best papers and entertainment at Bullock Texas State History Museum.
The local committee has secured rooms at a group rate of $179/night rate during the Conference. This rate will be available for 3 days before and after the conference dates, subject to availability.
On behalf of our local committee the 2016 PPIC Conference in Austin will be a memorable event. We look forward to making this a learning opportunity at the conference, but also offer a destination where you can unwind and enjoy yourself before returning to work.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to me.
See y'all in Austin!,
