The conference sessions start on Wednesday morning.
The days will be quite busy, but we hope, rewarding,
and also fun.
If possible, you should make travel arrangement so that you arrive around dinner time Tuesday, and fly out late Friday afternoon. The shuttle we will be running between Allerton and the airport will typically require you to leave around 3 hours before your flight. This means a 3PM or later scheduled departure time from the Urbana-Champaign airport should ensure that you do not miss anything.
Note, if you are an author, you will stay with your workshop group for all the sessions. Non authors are encouraged to pick a group and stay with it for all the sessions.
