For planning purposes, the cost of ILiADS this year is likely to be $800 for non-students and $300 for students. As we enter the spring phase of planning we are actively working to secure sponsoring organizations and partner institutions from around the LAC landscape. If secured, such support will likely bring down registration costs (ahead of the registration deadline) and/or provide subventions for some attendees (e.g. students and underrepresented groups).
As with past ILiADS a variety of dorm-room options will be available on a first-come reservation basis for under $100 for the week. Options will include private bathrooms (limited), suite scenarios, and halls with shared bath areas with private sink/shower rooms.
In addition we’ll secure blocks of rooms at the local Hampton Inn and Hilton Garden Inn, both of which are a short drive to campus. Costs there will range between $120-$150/night. There are a variety of B&Bs within a short walk from campus, but they are likely to book quickly.
Wooster is located less than an hour from both the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and the Akron-Canton Airport. It is also a reasonable drive from many Midwest and some East Coast cities (depending upon your definition of “reasonable”).
