Chapel Hill is home to the University of North Carolina, the flagship campus of the UNC system, the oldest public university in the US, and one of the top schools in the country. While exuding a small town feel, Chapel Hill offers food, fun, and culture the caliber of a big city. Check out this recent New York Times travel piece, 36 Hours in Chapel Hill-Carborro, N.C., for just a taste of what the town has to offer. While here for the conference, you will have the opportunity to dine at world class eateries, grab a drink at some blossoming breweries, and experience a wealth of museums and other cultural offerings. Also, the leaves will just be turning the first week of November! For accommodations, please visit http://ipres2015.web.unc.edu/accommodations/.
