Travel Logistics

Transportation: Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the closest airport to USC (~15 miles). There are no direct and easy routes to USC via public transportation; a taxi / shuttle/ rideshare driver should know how to get you to USC in a reasonable amount of time even through notorious LA traffic.

Lodging: The USC Hotel is at the edge of campus at 3540 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, California 90007.  This is the same location as the meeting.  We have booked a block of rooms for August 26-28 (and a limited number of additional rooms for checkout August 29).  The room rate is $169.00/night (excluding taxes).
