To the GROUP Community:

First, thank you to everyone for your support for GROUP following the news that we would be unable to hold the conference on Sanibel Island as planned, and for bearing with us as we worked with conference leadership and ACM to explore alternatives and secure a new location

We are happy to be able to announce that GROUP 2022/23 will be held on the same dates, January 8 - 11, 2023, at the Sonesta Resort on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

We took a number of factors into account in choosing a new venue, including availability, cost, and accessibility of location. We also wanted a place that had a similar “feel” to GROUP’s Sanibel Island home. However, Hilton Head also has the benefit of being larger than Sanibel, which means that it has its own airport, and though we hope that most attendees will choose to stay at the resort (which has slightly lower rates than our Sanibel venue), there are also more options for lodging available.

As a reminder, this will be an in-person conference, though we will provide a way for authors to present remotely if they are absolutely unable to attend. We will also be taking precautions regarding COVID to keep our attendees safe.

We are working on getting registration up as soon as we possibly can; the rates are likely to be unchanged. Our next messages will include registration and room block details, as well as information about student volunteering opportunities, and will also solicit information from contact authors about plans for presenting work.

Please, feel free to contact us at [email protected] if you have questions in the meantime.

Meanwhile, stay safe and well!
