Career Celebration  /  Symposium on Crystal Engineering

April 28-29


Air Travel - Austin is served by the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport with many direct flights to Dallas-Fort Worth, Chicago, Atlanta and other major cities.  The airport is located about 8 moles from downtown and about 10 miles from the UT-Austin campus (see map). 

Housing -  The organizing committee is recommending a couple of hotels (Homewood Suites $99/night or the Hampton Inn $84/night) for the Davis Celebration.  They are north of town at Braker Lane and MOPAC (Loop 1) and close to the reception. You can get more info on Homewood Suites from their website at: , then enter Austin, TX (no dates needed from that screen), and select the hotel at Austin-Arboretum/NW, 3908 W. Braker Lane, Austin, TX 78759.  The rooms in both are nice and the Homewood Suites has a nice continental breakfast as well as a spacious lobby for informal chats.

There are also many other fine hotels in downtown Austin and around the UT campus, as well as many Bed & Breakfast options within walking distance of the UT campus.  The following links provide a guide to your housing options.  Please contact the local committee if you need help or have questions concerning accommodations.

Ground Transportation - There are several options for getting from the airport to your hotel (directions).  The following web site has information on ground transportation options.  Note that in addition to taxis, there is the SuperShuttle ( $18 round trip / Austin direct number (512) 258-3826) and the Airport Flier (City Express Bus #100 ) which stops at 18th & Congress.
