Thanks go to all of you who attended and made it such a lively meeting.

which you are encouraged to improve and extend. (The wiki can be viewed by

University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, Coordinated Science Lab
(rooms 301 and 351)
(in the middle of the block bounded by
University and Springfield Avenues and Wright Street and Mathews Avenue).
Here is a
Arrival by car.
Champaign-Urbana is at the intersection of I-72, I-74 and I-57.
From I-72 east:
the interstate terminates eastbound at Champaign, and turns into
University Avenue. Follow it through downtown Champaign, under the railroad
tracks, and past First Street, Second Street etc. until Sixth Street.
The next street is Wright Street and the one after that is Mathews.
Turn south on Mathews and then follow the "parking" directions below.
From I-74 East or West:
exit south on Lincoln Avenue. Drive south and then
turn west onto University Avenue, then south onto Mathews Avenue,
and then follow the "parking" directions below.
From I-57 North or South:
1. Exit east onto University Avenue (same as I-72 East), then
follow the directions above. 2. Alternatively, exit onto I-74 East and follow
the instructions above.
Parking The best option is the university's parking structure at the
corner of University Avenue and Mathews Avenue (the closest entrance is off
Mathews, and another entrance is one block east off Goodwin). Parking
in this structure is free on weekends.
Or, you can park at metered spaces on the street, or in the
open-air municipal lot on Sixth Street between Healey and Green
Streets (entrances on Healey and Green).
Arrival by train or bus.
three trains per day from the
north (Chicago) and from the south (Carbondale), to Champaign.
Greyhound offers bus service
from Chicago, St. Louis and Indianapolis.
Lincolnland Express offers
shuttle service from
Midway, O'Hare and Indianapolis airports. All these services drop you at the
"Illinois Terminal" in Champaign (though Lincolnland will also drop you at
campus, on request). From there, catch almost any
eastbound or southbound city
bus ($1; ask the driver whether
the bus will go near campus) or else take a cab.
