Hi, Luc and all,


One aspect of the itinerary is the trip from Louisville to Columbus. This we will address by hiring a charter bus. It’s about a three-hour ride and a much better option than flying. The bus is an option on the registration form for the conference.


I think there is a direct flight to Louisville from Washington dulles as well on United.
