The meeting will take place at the Hyatt New Orleans Hotel. The First Announcement is available online at:

2. PASADENA HOTELS DELETE ENERGY CHARGE
We previously announced that the Pasadena hotels were going to add an energy surcharge to the room rate for our meeting. HOWEVER, due to hard work by the Executive Office, all three hotels have agreed not to assess this additional charge to our meeting attendees rooms.

3. HOW TO AVOID INTERNET INTERRUPTION AT THE AAS MEETING
If you plan on attending the AAS Meeting in Pasadena, CA 3-7 June 2001, you will most likely want to use the Meeting's Cyber Cafe for Email and Web Browsing. In order to ensure continuous access to your home site, please notify your local system and security administrators of the following:
The Internet traffic flowing from the meeting attendees, will be coming from the IP addresses ranging from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206.
In the past government sites have become aware of heavy traffic from our meetings and without notice shut off ALL access to attendees. This was done as a security measure, unaware that the traffic was originating at an AAS Annual Meeting. It caused several days of service interruption for meeting registrants. Informing your system administrators of the IP addresses could save you a lot of distress later!
Any further questions can be directed to Debbie Kovalsky, AAS Manager Information Systems - mailto:email@example.com.
