The conference will be on the UVA Campus. The main talks will be in 108 Clark Hall and the short talks in 102 and 108 Clark (marked on this map).


The most convenient airport is Charlottesville Albemarle Airport (CHO). Charlottesville is roughly a 1 hour drive from Richmond airport, and a 2.5-3 hour drive from Dulles and Reagan airports. If you are staying at the Cavalier Inn, they will provide shuttle service to CHO until 11 on 5/23, and 7am-3pm on other days.

Charlottesville is also served by Amtrak, and for those traveling from the northeastern US, this is often the most convenient way of getting here.


We recommend using the Cavalier Inn. If you tell them you're attending this conference by name, you should be able to get a rate of $105 per night (including tax). We have a block of rooms which are reserved until April 23rd, at which point they will be released. The walking route between the Cavalier and Clark Hall is marked on the marked on conference map.

Since the conference will end by 12:30 on the 27th, participants are encouraged to economize on hotels by departing that evening, when it is compatible with their travel plans.

Other hotels convenient to the conference (roughly ordered by increasing distance) are:


We'll provide coffee and snacks during the conference. Some convenient places for lunch are marked on conference map and a more extensive discussion of the food options is in the restaurant list.


Attendees should make their own travel arrangements, though feel free to ask if you have questions. Please save all original receipts, tickets and boarding passes for reimbursement.
