Location and Travel
LocationThe conference will be held in Cincinnati, Ohio in two venues: the first day will be held on the campus of the University of Cincinnati in the Tangeman University Center. The opening plenary sessions will be held in the Great Hall, and the afternoon parallel sessions will be held in adjacent conference rooms. The remainder of the conference will be held in the heart of downtown Cincinnati at the Westin Hotel and Conference Center in Fountain Square. The Westin has extensive facilities for both plenary and parallel sessions. As most conference attendees will be staying at the Westin, transportation will be provided on the first day between the Westin and the University of Cincinnati.
The opening reception will be held on Friday, September 28th from 6:00 pm until 8:30 pm at the Westin. The conference banquet will be held on Sunday, September 30th at the Contemporary Arts Center, an internationally known museum of modern art within easy walking distance of the Westin. There will be a conference excursion on Monday, October 1 for which transportation will be provided.
