The location for the 2019 Los Angeles workshop is 19901 Prairie Ave, Torrance, CA 90503. The workshop and hotel are in the same location. Funding from the NSF PRODUCT (DUE-1525058) allows us to provide low cost housing and some meals on workshop days.  We recognize that people may live in the area, or have friends or family members they are able to stay with, thus we have a tiered registration fee for those needing housing and those not needing housing. 

A registration fee and registration form are required. The registration fee is $350 for participants who require lodging and $150 for participants who do not require lodging.

The registration fee covers hotel (for non-locals), breakfast and lunch on workshop days, venue, and facilitator salaries and expenses. Participants are responsible to pay for travel costs, some meals, and the registration fee.
