Transportation  By car, Clemson is only two hours from Atlanta or Charlotte.  Clemson is about 40 miles from GSP, the Greenville/Spartanburg International Airport, which has direct flights to major cities on the East Coast.  Airport Shuttle from the airport to Clemson costs $42 cash (or $44 credit card), and their phone number for reservation is 1-800-669-6463 (you should get a cheaper price if reserved by group, e.g. $35 each if two people reserved together). Clemson is also a train stop on the Amtrak Crescent line  which connects New Orleans to New York passing through Washington, Baltimore, Charlottesville, Charlotte, and Atlanta. The southbound train arrives in Clemson daily at 6:10 a.m. The northbound arrives in Clemson at 9:54 p.m.

Travel Support  Pending NSF support, the conference hopes to be able to provide limited travel support for some participants.  Graduate students and junior faculty are particularly encouraged to apply. Note: Make sure the flight has a flight number of a US carrier.  To apply,  fill out this form .
