Reservations are recommended, and may be made by calling: 1-800-888-4639 (inside the US and Canada) 1-317-241-7100 (outside the US and Canada) Other Lodging Indianapolis is a popular conference center, located near the middle of the United States, and popular for automobile racing, and its sports, especially basketball. Lodging during a popular event is both expensive and difficult to find, with room charges exceeding US$ 200.00 at major hotels. Less expensive rooms will be found at hotels on the periphery of Indianapolis, but travel times and taxi fares may reduce savings. A guide to hotels is available on-line. Hotels on the south and west sides of Indianapolis are located nearest the conference site. Three moderately-priced hotels, which still have rooms available during August 22 to August 24 are listed on the map of Indianapolis and its surroundings. All are approximately 8-10 miles (12.8-16 km) distant from the conference site at the University Place Hotel.

Indianapolis is served by an international airport. Delta Airlines has a hub there. All major rental car agencies have offices at the airport. Across from baggage claim area Number Two is the Ground Transportation Center, where shuttle, limousine and taxi service are available. Driving in Indianapolis is eased by the wide streets, although many streets are one way only, so some planning may be needed to get where you are going. Downtown parking is available in numerous underground parking garages at rates of US$ 8-15 per day, and hourly rates of US$ 1.50-3.00. There is bus service within the city, including the IPCAT conference site, but none to the airport.
Weather During IPCAT the weather may be extremely hot and humid, with temperatures ranging into the 90 degree Fahrenheit range (32 degrees Celsius) during the day. There may be occasional afternoon thunderstorms, but no severe weather is expected at that time of year. Dress for hot weather, with a sweater for use in the air-conditioned conference rooms.
