The lectures will be held in Room N120 of the ENR2 building, on the UA campus. Here are directions.


The conference hotel is the Tucson Marriott University Park. Wi-Fi access is included with the room at the Marriott (if your room was booked by the SWC). The Marriott is right next to campus and less than half a mile from the lecture hall. If your room was booked by the SWC, please check your lodging confirmation email, and see the directions page for more details.

Working sessions

There will be evening working sessions at 7:30 PM on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday evenings. The working sessions will provide students with an opportunity to discuss their projects with the speakers, as well as a chance for everyone to get more details or clarifications from the speakers. Active participation by all participants is strongly encouraged. The evening working sessions will take place in the ballroom of the Marriott. (Though the sessions begin at 7:30, the rooms are reserved from 6:30 PM if you wish to get an early start.)


There is a mandatory $175 registration fee to attend AWS 2023, which you can pay online by credit card here. If you are a graduate student participant who applied for financial assistance then either this fee should be reimbursed to you by your home institution, or the AWS will provide you with per-diem for up to $175 for the week; please consult the funding email you were sent for details. Please note that you will not be able to check in to your hotel room unless you have paid the registration fee, and we ask that you do so before 12:00pm MST on February 18.

Check-in for the conference will take place from 8:00--8:55 am Saturday morning in the courtyard of the ENR2 building on campus, right outside the lecture hall. You can get your name tag and welcome package, as well as expense reimbursement forms at these times.

Coffee and snacks

Coffee and snacks will be available in the morning from the Marriott hotel, and during the longer between-lecture breaks in the courtyard of ENR2.

Free Afternoon

The afternoon of Monday, March 6 is a free afternoon.
