Location of Conference Events and Parking

All sessions will be on the campus of UNC Greensboro. Further details will be provided when available.

As far as parking on campus, even though it’s spring break, the decks will be operating and charging as normal. Some may prefer to Uber around. A UNCG parking map is here (pdf).


The Piedmont Triad International Airport is 15-20 minutes from campus and about 15 minutes down I-40 to the hotels.


We were able to book 50 rooms at the Drury Inn for the nights of March 8 & 9 (15 King and 35 2-Queen) but that courtesy hold expires on February 15, so attendees will have to move fast. (To book online, use group number 2354902; enter this number on the “About Your Stay” page after plugging in the date(s).)

Another option is the Doubletree Inn, which is about 10 minutes from campus and just down the road from the Drury. They are offering guests the UNCG rate ($135/night) and guests can call and make their own reservation using the link below. There’s no limit on the rooms but they may fill up.

There are several other hotels in the same area as these two, and still more near the intersection of Wendover Avenue and I-40. There are also two B&Bs that may have availability if you want that info. The best one, Double Oaks, is totally booked already.


A list of suggested eating places will be included with your conference materials.


The registration fee (cash or check only) will be $5 for undergraduates, $20 for graduate students, $25 for part-time faculty, and $35 for full-time faculty. Please note that there is no advance registration.

For questions and more information, please write to the conference organizer, Stephen Puryear (NC State University).
