The conference will take place on the campus of Portland State University in and near the PSU Library on the South Park Blocks in southwest Portland, Oregon. Parking can be a challenge on our downtown campus. However, we are very well-served by public transportation through Trimet, our region's transit agency. You can take MAX light rail, the Portland streetcar, or the bus to PSU. The Trimet trip planner can help you plan your travel within Portland.
