SIAM does not share or distribute personal, registration or housing details with any company or person. Improper solicitation of hotel reservations is not approved by SIAM, and any claim SIAM has provided attendee contact information for solicitation is fraudulent.   Reservations offered by unaffiliated organizations may promise lower rates, however, they may be illegitimate, nonexistent, non-refundable, or have unreasonable cancellation or change penalties.  Please be aware of, and report any unauthorized solicitation to [email protected].

Student Rate Reservations Link ($141.75): Please call the hotel at +1-612-339-4900 to receive a student rate. When making reservations by phone, be sure to identify yourself as a student attendee of the SIAM Conference on the Life Sciences (LS18). Student ID must be presented upon check-in.

Hotel Reservation Deadline: July 6, 2018



Target Center, Target Field, US Bank Stadium, the theaters of Hennepin Avenue, shopping and the city's best restaurants surround the Radisson Blu Minneapolis Downtown. The hotel's direct Skyway access and proximity to the light rail stations make traveling outside the area a breeze. You can shop next door at Nordstrom Rack or hop on the light rail to experience the Mall of America. While on-site parking options make it easy to drive into and stay downtown, we doubt you'll need a car during your stay since almost everything is within a few blocks of the hotel's landmark location.

Did you know?

Your support in staying at the Radisson Blu Minneapolis helps keep the conference costs down, which directly affects your registration fees. SIAM guarantees the hotel that we will fill a certain number of “room nights” (rooms per night) during the conference. SIAM incurs penalties if too many attendees opt to stay in other hotels in the area or neglect to indicate to the hotel that they are with the SIAM conference. At this time, conference costs do not include meeting room rental. If SIAM fails to fill the contracted room block, SIAM is charged the cost for the meeting rooms on a daily basis, along with a hefty penalty. Future registration fees could increase to cover these additional risks.


Welcome Reception

When making your reservation, remember that the Welcome Reception is scheduled for Sunday, August 5. This is an excellent networking opportunity!
