By air: The best way to get into Austin is by air, through Austin Bergstrom International Airport. There are several options to move around town. For ground transportation, check the airport website:

By road: You should use the IH-35 North. From South, take Exit 235A to MLK Blvd, and turn right on San Jacinto Blvd. From North, take Exit 236A to Dean Keeton St, and turn left on San Jacinto Blvd.


Note: There are several large events happening in Austin on the same weekend as the conference. You will want to book your accommodations before the conference blocks expire. Obtaining rooms after that will likely be difficult and costly.

Hotels and rates: The official conference hotel is the Hampton Inn and Suites University by Hilton, located in 1701 Lavaca St., Austin, Texas 78701. The conference rates are $209/night for a room with one single king bed, and $219/night for a room with two queen beds. Priority deadline is August 25, 2016.
