Conference Location

The UCLA campus is located in the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Participants may fly into LAX airport, approximately 15 miles south of the campus. The LAX FLYAWAY bus runs between LAX and Westwood every hour from 6 A.M. to 10 P.M. and costs 10 dollars one way. Driving time from the airport varies depending on the day of the week and time of day. During non-rush hour traffic times, plan on about a 30-40 minute drive between campus and LAX; during rush hour traffic, plan on an hour or more.
