GETTING HERE: The most direct route is to fly into the Eugene Airport (EUG) located a 20-minute cab ride from campus (map – Eugene Airport to Univ of Oregon). You can also fly into Portland (PDX) and then drive 2.0 hours south on Interstate 5 (I-5). Eugene Airport has daily connections to Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, and Salt Lake City. Non-stop flights are just 60 min from Seattle and 90 min from San Francisco. EUG flight information is available here.

The conference was held in the EMU building at the corner of University St. and East 13th. It houses a variety of casual restaurants and a coffee shop. We used the Crater Lake Rooms for reception and posters, and the Redwood Auditorium for the talks.
