AIRPORT & Transportation

You might prefer arriving at O'Hare Airport in Chicago (ORD) rather than the Dane County Airport, Madison (MSN). The reason is that transfers from ORD to MSN are often delayed and make the cost of the airline ticket significantly higher. Waiting for a couple hours for transfer in Chicago plus one hour flight equates three hours by bus and a much cheaper airline ticket.

A Van Galder/Coach USA Bus—leaving every hour or so—is available for $29 outside terminals 3 and 5 and will bring you to the UW Campus @ Langdon & Park St., a block from the conference venue on campus.

Another solution is to rent a car at O'Hare Airport and drive to Madison, Wisconsin. Especially if your credit card includes insurance, it can be very affordable and useful since the location of a few Conference activities is in Mazomanie, 30 minutes away from Madison. We reserved an 8-seat bus for the Conference for participants who need a ride, nonetheless renting a car may give you more autonomy.

Day 1 tentative program. Details of the program Days 2 & 3 are forthcoming.
