Travel and local information


The conference will be held in room 328 on the third floor of Boyd Graduate Studies Research Center, which is situated adjacent to the Science Library on UGA's south campus.


Athens is located 60 miles to the east of Atlanta. All major airlines fly to Atlanta (Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport with code ATL).  The shuttle service Groome Transportation provides the 90 minute trip to Athens for $39 one way. Groome Transportation drops off and picks up at local hotels and near the math department, at the Georgia Center.

Greenville-Spartanburg Airport (code GSP) is a 2 hour, low traffic drive to or from Athens. You will need to rent a car if you land there.
