Pasadena is accessible from a number of airports, including LAX and the
Bob Hope airport in Burbank.
: From LAX, take the "Flyaway bus" to union station, and then take the Metro gold line
to Pasadena. Note that not all locations in Pasadena are
within walking distance to campus, so please plan ahead if you
plan to use public transportation.
Super Shuttle, taxi services, and ride share services are
also available from LAX.
If you have a car, visitor parking is available in
campus parking structures
Structure #3, underneath the baseball fields, is
closest to Cahill. Visitor parking permits may be purchased for $6 per day from an automated kiosk
in the garage.
The workshop will be limited to around 50 participants.
The registration fee of $80 includes coffee breaks on all
three days, and an informal lunch on March 25.
