Registration Info

"A different kind of PLoP"

Registration for ChiliPLoP is handled electronically. After reviewing the current list of Hot Topics, you must email the group leader requesting permission to join that group. After you have been accepted to your Hot Topic, the group leader will send you the URL of the registration page. This page gives information for how to register using that link.

Everyone who plans to attend ChiliPLoP must perform a two-step registration process. Step I involves filling out and submitting the registration form. Then, in Step II, you will be prompted to print out, fill in, and fax a credit card form to complete the registration. The credit card will be charged upon receipt.

The fee for ChiliPLoP 2006 is $650 prior to 3/11/2006 ($750 late registration). Guest fees are $300. (Click here for current exchange rates.) Check out the Transportation Wiki to find others who want to car pool or share a Super Shuttle for ChiliPLoP. The cost for a commuter participant is $500 for the conference period. This includes meals, taxes, and service charges. All participants will arrange transportation at their own cost. We will happily arrange transportation to the airport at the end of the conference, but this will be at the participant's cost.

This fee includes:

  • Conference Costs
  • Your own room
  • Meals (dinner the first night through lunch on the last day) Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, continuous snacks and beverages

Attendees should plan to arrive on the first day of the conference (Tuesday 11-April 2006) to sign in. The room check-in time is 3:00 pm, but you may arrive earlier to tour Carefree. Depart after lunch on the last day (Friday 14-April, 2006).

All meals from dinner Tuesday night through lunch on Friday are included.

The technical program begins Wednesday morning and runs until noon on Friday.

Registration fees will be processed upon receipt. If you need to cancel your reservation after 11-March-2006, there will be a $50 cancellation charge. No refund will be given after this date, including 'no shows.' Registration may be transferred with written approval.

Registration Instructions

If you are the leader of a Hot Topic, please select the Leader button. If you have been accepted as a participant in a Hot Topic, please check the Hot Topic box. In the case of leading or participating in a Hot Topic, enter the Hot Topic in the text box.

At the Sky Harbor Airport a shuttle will be available to bring you to the hotel. However, the cost of this shuttle will be the participant's responsibility. Get driving directions to the retreat

Check in is Tuesday, after 15:00. If you arrive before check-in, you may be able to get into your room, if it is ready, but please don't count on this! Before the check-in time, you can stroll and eat lunch in the town of Carefree at your own expense. Shops and such are very close by.

For arrival flexibility on the first night, pizza will be available in the lower meeting room from 18:00 until 21:00. Please check the late arrival item if your flight arrives after 19:00 so we may better plan this first meal. Special arrangements must be made in advance if you expect to arrive at the LRC after 22:00 as the doors are locked at this time (allow an estimate of 90 minutes from your plane arrival time for baggage pick-up and the shuttle journey).

Use the Comments box for any information you feel that we should have.

ChiliPLoP is "a different kind of PLoP." It is our intention to accommodate people in single rooms, but space is limited and some will have to share. If you bring a guest, or your family, we will set you up in a room with roll-away beds for the younger guests. Should you need more than one room, please advise the conference chair as soon as you can. Please indicate a room sharing preference if you have one, so we may make this as enjoyable for everyone involved.

If you have a World Wide Web homepage, or a page associated with your submission, indicate the URL for it in the WWW field.
