AGA2018: Origins of Adaptive Radiation
Venue and Accommodations

Meeting Location 

The AGA Symposium will be held on the campus of the Hawai'i Preparatory Academy (HPA) in Waimea, on the Big Island of Hawai'i.  HPA offers a beautiful, intimate setting between the Kohala Mountains and the beach.

HPA has full facilities for our lectures, poster sessions, receptions, dining, and accommodation.











Housing requests are closed.  No additional nights can be added.  Room cancellations will receive a refund of 50% until July 19th; no refund after. 

The cost for lodging at the HPA residence halls is $60/night double (total $180 for the 3 nights Jul 22/23/24) and $80/night single ($240 for 3 nights).  The cost includes Mon/Tue/Wed breakfasts and Monday night dinner (Sunday and Tuesday dinner receptions are included in the meeting registration fee).  Please pay for lodging when you register.

Individual rooms each have two beds and can accommodate one or two people (a third if age 11 or under on a mattress on the floor). Included in each room are bed linens and a washcloth and towel. The rooms have internet access and telephones. Washers and dryers are available for use at no cost (bring your own detergent or purchase at the bookstore) for those staying in the dorms.

All of the dorm buildings will have been completely rennovated prior to our arrival. Be aware, though, that as dorms, rooms do not have their own baths, which are situated down the hall.


Local Hotels and Resorts

The Waimea/Kohala Coast area has many hotels, motels, vacation rentals, and bed and breakfasts.  However, the closest accommodation to HPA is 2 miles away.  A few nearby spots are The Jacaranda Inn, The Kamuela Inn, and Waimea Gardens.  If you are not planning to stay on campus, you will probably need to rent a car.
