Are You In Need of a Roommate?

Neither the Marriott nor VAF offers any sort of roommate match-up service, but you might find a feature of conference registration helpful. Near the top of the first page of registration, there is a link to a list of people already registered under that category (full registration or a la carte registration). You might find these lists helpful if you are searching for a roommate and recognize someone you know.
