Your support in staying at the Westin Convention Center, Pittsburgh 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. If SIAM fails to fill the contracted room block, SIAM is charged a penalty. Future registration fees could increase to cover these additional risks.
