Program Information

The 2010 APS program is set and now available!

Conference Hotel & Meeting Venue

All conference sessions will take place in the Riverside Room of the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center on the banks of the scenic Red Cedar River on the MSU campus.  For the conference rate of $90/night, single or double occupancy (+13% tax), mention the “Ancient Philosophy Society” when you phone Kellogg Center toll-free 1-800-875-5090. Rates guaranteed through March 22, 2010.

The Kellogg Center offers free wi-fi throughout, including guest rooms, free parking, and a free shuttle service by reservation (make arrangements when reserving your room).  The shuttle picks up/drops off at Lansing’s Capitol City Airport (LAN), the campus Amtrak station, and the East Lansing bus stop of the MichiganFlyer, which serves Detroit Metro Airport (DTW).

Because of a carrot and a stick, the Local Arrangements Committee urges you to make your reservations as early as possible.  The carrot: what we pay for use of the Riverside Room, $0-$500, is proportionate to the number of room-nights booked, and the more we save on the meeting room, the more we’ll have available for complementary food and beverages.  The stick: When the block of APS rooms is used up or the deadline passes, rooms revert to the undiscounted rate of $119-$189 per night.
