Coffee Breaks and Lunch will be provided at NCSA for all participants both days of the workshop. The Hampton Inn provides breakfast for those staying there. Dinner is on your own.

Travel Arrangements

For participants who will need to travel to attend the workshop, Brown Dog has funds to pay for travel and lodging.

The most convenient way to get to Urbana from afar is to fly into Champaign's Willard Airport (CMI). It is served by American Airlines with 6 flights in and out per day connecting to Chicago O'Hare (ORD, 5 flights) and Dallas-Ft. Worth (DFW, 1 flight).

The easiest way to travel between Willard and the Hampton Inn is by taxi. There are typically a number of taxis waiting at the airport when each flight comes in, or the phone number for taxi companies should be easy to find at the airport.

Parking

Most out-of-town participants will be staying at the Hampton Inn, which is within short walking distance from the NCSA building. For local participants, there are parking meters surrounding the NCSA building as well as in the parking deck just north of NCSA. For out-of-town participants that are not staying in a local hotel, we will have a limited number of parking hang-tags available at check-in.

Wireless Networks

The following wireless networks are available at the NCSA building: IllinoisNet, eduroam, and UIpublicWiFi.
