                       University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA.

Don't forget to register to attend SIGIR '06 -- and do not forget to
book your lodging.  The two hotels (Silver Cloud Inn and Watertown
Hotel)  will release our SIGIR room block on July 5 and after that  the
rates will increase significantly, and possibly the hotels will  be
full.  The deadline for UW dorm reservations is July 19, but it's best
to take care of making  reservations now so you don't forget later.

 For more information and links to the hotels and UW dorms, visit the
lodging page of the SIGIR 2006 website:
