Lodging: A block of
rooms has been reserved at the Cardinal Hotel under the group name

wi-fi and breakfast. Rooms will be held only until OCTOBER 10. The
hotel is located in downtown Palo Alto, one block south of University Ave. The

Travel: The Stanford
campus may be conveniently reached from both the San Francisco and San
Jose airports. Taxis from the airport to campus are expensive.
A more economical option is a shuttle van, which picks up passengers
on the departure level just outside the airport terminals. Two companies
serve the area.
SHUTTLE: $26.00 ($8.00/each additional person) one way. Pick up is
on departure level at marked locations. Runs 24 hours a day.
No reservations are required for SFO, but reservations are
recommended for the San Jose Airport. Three stop maximum per shuttle trip.
SOUTH BAY AIRPORT
SHUTTLE: $22.00 for SFO and $29.00 for San Jose Airport ($9.00 each
additional person) one way, door-to-door to/from any airport terminal.
Pick up is on departure level at blue/yellow sign. Reservations
required. ($10.00 service charge after 11:30 pm) (800) 548-4664 or
For those who do
not mind a short walk, it is also possible to take public transportation
from SFO to campus. Take BART from the airport one stop to the
Millbrae station, where you can get off and take a CalTrain south toward
San Jose (you will need to buy tickets at a machine before boarding).
For the Stanford campus, get off at the Palo Alto stop (22 min walk
to center of campus). You can follow signs from the train to campus. For
the hotel, walk up University Ave. into downtown Palo Alto and turn right at
the third block into town (Ramona St.). The hotel will be at the end of
the block on your right. CalTrain schedules are available here: http://www.caltrain.com/schedule.html
To return, one can
take the train, arrange a shuttle pickup, or take a flat-rate cab from
campus back to the airport (flat-rate cabs are available for that
direction only). For that, you will need to call the following cab
company, at least 30 minutes prior to your desired departure time from
campus: Best Airport Yellow Cab Company (650)-852-1233. Be sure to
mention that you are calling from Stanford and that you have been guaranteed
a flat rate (approx. $45).
Meetings are free
and open to all. There is no membership requirement. However, f you
are planning on attending the conference and are interested in dinner, please
contact Tamar Schapiro (firstname.lastname@example.org)
by November 2.
