Message from UConn Conference Services

Registration for ICAP2008 ends Friday, June 27th

Thank you for registering for the ICAP 2008! As you know, this year's conference is being held at the University of Connecticut. We look forward to seeing you on campus next month. In the meantime, please take some time to learn about our University at

As you prepare for your trip, we want to remind you that there is an upcoming deadline for certain Conference "extras". For instance, after Friday, June 27th you will no longer be able to sign up for housing in the University residence halls, the optional ICAP banquet, dining hall meal plans, Wednesday's exciting off-campus excursions, and most importantly, airport shuttle service. In addition, if you have an outstanding balance for conference fees, these must be paid by June 27th. Please review your registration by logging into the ICAP registration site at

Outstanding balances must be paid by June 27th

If you have registered for the Conference but you still have an outstanding balance, all payments must be received by June 27th. If you are paying by check or money wire, your payment must be received at the University of Connecticut by June 27th. If you are paying by credit card must submit all payments by June 27th. Please make payment arrangements at Thank you! Any person who has an outstanding balance after June 27th will no longer be registered for the conference.

Shuttle Service

If you have chosen and pre-paid for shuttle service to the UConn campus from Bradley International Airport or Logan Airport please note that Premier Limousine will be the shuttle company you will be riding with. Upon arrival at the airport, proceed to the baggage claim area. There will be Premier Limousine drivers/ chauffeurs holding up signs that read "ICAP". In the event that you do not see a chauffeur with a sign, please call 1-866-885-5466 or 1-860-828-9111 and give them the name of the conference, your name, and let them know you are ready for pick up. A car will arrive for you shortly there after. For shuttle service back to the airport from UConn, please see the Conference Service staff at the registration desk during the ICAP Conference. We will have a return trip scheduled for you at that time.

Please understand that you will not be given an assigned shuttle time prior to your arrival. We will do our best to have a shuttle waiting for you at baggage claim when you arrive. But with delays in flights and baggage claim becoming more frequent, we understand that you may need to take a shuttle an hour after your original arrival time. For this reason, you may ride on any Premier Limousine shuttle that reads "ICAP". Also, be sure to have the Premier Limousine phone numbers with you during your travels. If you don't see a shuttle when you arrive, you may call for one.

Dates of shuttle service

  • From Bradley International Airport to the UConn campus:
    July 26th, July 27th, July 28th
  • From Logan International Airport to the UConn campus: July 27th
  • Return service from the UConn campus to Bradley and Logan: August 1st only

Only limited shuttle service from Bradley Airport will be available on Saturday, July 26th and Monday July 28th. There will be a small number of shuttles on these two days; therefore you may be required to wait an extended period of time for your shuttle departure. Shuttles will be running frequently on Sunday, July 27th and August 1st.

Please remember: You will not be able to ride on a shuttle if you have not pre-registered for shuttle service. If you think you may need a shuttle to or from the airport, it is a good idea to pre-register for service. However, refunds will not be available should you decide not to take the shuttle. In order to reserve your shuttle, you must provide us with your flight information. Please log into to enter your flight information. Flight information is also due by June 27th.
