The February 2012 WG14 meeting is sponsored by Bloomberg LP, with local hosting arrangements by Plum Hall. The meeting will take place at the Royal Kona Resort, in Kailua-Kona Hawaii, Monday Feb 13 to Friday Feb 17. The hotel's web site is here:
(This was the location of the October 2007 meeting, as well as others before that.) The hotel is located in downtown Kailua-Kona, which has remained the most-requested location for Big Island meetings. In addition to the hotel restaurant, there are many other eating places within walking distance. Because of the downtown location, a rental car is unnecessary; however, it can be useful for island excursions.
The Keahole Airport (Kailua-Kona, airport code KOA) is about 8 miles north from downtown; a shared taxi is the best airport transport. Don't allow your travel agent to book you inadvertently to Hilo Airport (ITO), unless you have intentionally planned the scenic three-hour drive into your itinerary. If your travel agent books you to Honolulu, you will still need another flight to get to Kona (KOA).
Reservations for the hotel room can be made online at this web page:
The February 2012 WG21 (C++) meeting will also be sponsored by Bloomberg, again with local hosting arrangements by Plum Hall. That meeting will take place at the same venue (Royal Kona Resort), from Monday Feb 6 to Friday Feb 10. (A separate meeting notice has been sent to WG21.)
