The deadline for abstracts to appear in the booklet of abstracts

Chapman University is in Orange, California, CA 92866. The local
airport is Orange County Airport (SNA) which is 11 miles from the
university and is a good choice for domestic flights. Convenient
shuttle service is provided e.g. by http://www.supershuttle.com
(An alternative domestic airport is Long Beach Airport LGB, which
is 20 miles from Chapman and also has shuttle service to Orange.)

Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is 40 miles from Chapman.
There are several suttle services that provide convenient
transportation from LAX to Chapman University and/or the recommended
Ayres Inn Hotel in Orange. E.g. advanced booking at http://shuttletolax.com/
or http://www.supershuttle.com/ provides even better prices than
selecting a shuttle service on arrival.

For participants who arrive by car, driving directions to Chapman University
are available at http://www.chapman.edu/discover/maps-directions/index.aspx
