There are a number of affordable hotels in Portland (especially since we painstakingly avoided any week with a major trade show), many close to the conference venue.

We have arranged a special room rate at University Place, the conference venue.


The Portland Airport is close to the city and can be reached by local transportation in about 40 minutes. There are flights from Amsterdam and Tokyo, as well as many cities within the US.

Local transportation

Portland has an reasonable public transportation system: Most major locations in Portland can easily be reached by public transportation.

Tickets are available from vending machines at any rail stop or aboard any bus (see also our hints on using public transportation). The conference venue and hotel can be reached on the Max Yellow line.

Local Dining

The conference venue is at the southern edge of the downtown area. There are many restaurants and food carts close-by as well as north towards the city center. Feel free to ask for recommendations on site.
