Travel and accomodation is at your own expense, or the expense of your institution. Below we've provided some guidance on air travel, lodging and transportation.  Please don't hesitate to email us for additional logistical support.  

Meeting venue

The meeting will be held in the Lathrop Library on Stanford's main campus, 518 Memorial Way, which is directly east of the Oval and adjacent to Memorial Hall. There are multiple public entrances. See a campus map, or find further directions on their website.

Lathrop Library

Please bring a print-out of your EventBrite ticket or ID and look for the signs for our event. Stanford staff will be waiting to greet you and show you to the room.


Information about transportation to Stanford can be found at http://transportation.stanford.edu. Some important and helpful transportation links include:

  • CalTrain - local commuter rail between San Francisco and San Jose.
  • Marguerite Shuttle - Stanford's free public shuttle service, which travels around campus and connects to nearby transit, shopping, dining, and entertainment.


Parking on campus can be a bit of an adventure.  If you plan to drive a car on campus, we recommend parking at the Stanford Visitor's Center or underground Parking Structure 7.  At both of these parking areas there are a pay-by-space kiosks that allows you to pay $12 for all day parking.  The Visitor Center is an 8 minute walk from Lathrop and Parking Structure 7 is about 10 minutes

As it is summer, parking demand is light, and if you are on-campus by 8:30am you should be successful finding a spot. &nbsp. For more information on parking on campus see: http://parking.stanford.edu.
