Travel Information

Getting to UIC: The meeting will be held in the UIC Math Department, which is located in the Science and Engineering offices building (SEO, 849 S Morgan St, Chicago, IL 60607). Signs with instructions on where to go will be throughout in the building, but you can also come to Laura Schaposnik's office (SEO 509) looking for more information as well.

Getting there by By car: UIC is easily accessible by car, and is located just off of either the 90/94 or 290 interstates. If you are coming into UIC, it's best to park at the Halsted Parking Structure at the NE corner of the Taylor and Halsted intersection. You will have to take a ticket for the parking garage; if we know in advance you will be parking there, you can bring your ticket in to the workshop and we can validate it to cover the cost. Note that in/out priveledges are not included in the validation. Also note that the parking at the hotel is far more expensive, and should be avoided if possible. It is recommended that you plan to park your car in the Halsted Parking Structure for the weekend instead or book a space with SpotHero.
