Conference venue

The meetings will be held on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania. Located in the central part of the campus, three adjacent buildings -– Houston Hall, Claudia Cohen, Irvine Music Hall – will serve as the hub for all conference related activities. The campus is beautifully situated with huge oak trees and green open spaces. The two major hotels offering special conference rates are conveniently located on the edge of campus (~3 blocks).

Additionally, the city subway stop and train station are within easy walking distance of the venue......making museum visits and old town Philadelphia convenient.
