Map and Directions

Flying to Chicago: Chicago has two airports, Midway and O'Hare. Midway Airport is located closer to the University of Chicago and is more convenient to fly into. From either airport, the fastest way to get to downtown or the university is by taxi. If you are traveling directly to the symposium from the airport, the Omega Shuttle Service is an alternative option. 

Tutorial session, Gordon Center 301 (Saturday November 2nd): The tutorial session will be in the Gordon Center for Integrative Science (GCIS) at 929 E. 57th St. in Room 301/ 303. Go right (south) on Ellis Ave to 57th Street. Cross the street and head right (west) on 57th Street, proceeding 1/2 block to the CIS building main entrances on left. Enter the west wing entrance, take the elevator to the 3rd floor. CIS W301/303 is immediately to your left. For a pseudo-aerial version of the building location, see
