Travel by Air

For individuals traveling by air, the conference organizers recommend flying into the State College/University Park Airport (airport code: SCE), located approximately five miles from the conference venue, since other Pennsylvania airports (Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg) will involve significant additional travel to State College, which is centrally located in the State of Pennsylvania.

The State College/University Park Airport (airport code: SCE), serviced by American Airlines, Delta, and United, is located near the conference site. Call 814-865-5511 or visit the State College/University Park Airport website for information on flights. We recommend that you make the State College/University Park Airport your final airport destination. Please inquire with your hotel if they offer courtesy airport transportation. Taxis are often located outside of the airport baggage claim area, curbside. Participants are responsible for arranging ground transportation between the airport, hotels, and conference site. Please view this University Park Airport Taxis and Shuttles page.
