This option is only available on-site and does not include Final Program. Individuals who preregister for the entire meeting will not be entitled to a refund if they stay only one day.

Meal Accommodations

This year your registration fee covers breakfast and lunch, as well as the twice daily coffee breaks.

Buffet Breakfast will be served from 7:00 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. and Buffet Lunch from 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. Please note that the registration fee for spouse and guests also includes breakfast and lunch. SIAM negotiated a considerable savings for the annual meeting participants and their family in providing these meals. The SIAM buffet meals for registered attendees will be served in the Vista Verde Guarden. If folks miss these serving times, or do not want to eat at the buffet, they are on their own for meals. SIAM cannot and will not reimburse any meal costs included in registration fees.

For dinner, the Westin Rio Mar Beach Resort has six great restaurants -- ranging from the outdoor Club Coqui (named for the little tree frog) serving hamburgers and sandwiches, to the elegant Palio Restaurant serving classical northern Italian specialties. The resort's concierge has a restaurant guide for the many famous restaurants in Old San Juan as well as the surrounding hotels and speciality restaurants on the island.

Bring your family or friends to Puerto Rico for a lovely holiday!
