Travel to Boulder:
We have approximately 108 blocked rooms at local hotels, though Boulder has a range of other accommodation options. Be sure to check a map for your hotel location, as some are not within (reasonable) walking distance of the University.
More information coming soon. In the meantime, here are some points of interest that we recommend. We strongly recommend printing out this map or enlarging to view the full map. Please note that there are many more restaurants and bars than those listed on the Googlemap. (A comprehensive list of restaurants can be found at the downtown boulder website.) Our list is aimed to give participants in the RoME conference a few tips about where to head for drinks and dinner after the plenaries.
