Intel is pleased to invite the C and C++ standards committees to meet in Portland, Oregon, USA in October of 2012. The exact meeting dates are:
The meeting venue is:
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Portland
1000 NE Multnomah St.
Portland OR 97232
Please do not make reservations by contacting the hotel directly. Instead make your reservations at: http://www.seeuthere.com/CStandardCommitteeMeetings
The DoubleTree is about 7 miles from Portland International Airport (PDX), near downtown Portland.
The most convenient way to get from the airport to the hotel is to take Portland's light-rail system (MAX), which runs from about 5:00 AM to midnight. It is about a 25-minute ride, at a cost of USD 2.40. The DoubleTree is also in Portland's Free Rail Zone, in which the light rail and streetcars are free. So the heart of downtown Portland is just a 10-minute free train-ride away.
It would also be practical to rent a car. The hotel has free parking; their web site has driving directions.
The meeting will be held in the Executive Meeting Center, which is a premium meeting facility, providing:
High-speed Internet access will also be available in all hotel rooms.
The room rate will be USD 134.00 per night; this will include no meals. To obtain that rate, reservations must be made through this web site: http://www.seeuthere.com/CStandardCommitteeMeetings. Also, the meeting rooms are in a secure area; access is by card-lock. Each attendee will have his own card-key; to ensure this, all meeting attendees must register at this site, including those who will not be staying at this hotel. Please register by September 14.
For those making room reservations at the DoubleTree, the web site will ask for a credit card number. Your card will be used only to guarantee your hotel reservation; the card will not be charged at registration time.
In October in Portland, a typical temperature range is about 64-45°F (18-7°C). Unfortunately, October is the beginning of the rainy season, but heavy rains are rare in Portland; typical rainfall in October would be less than 0.1 inches per day (2 mm).
