By trains and planes:
Trains run regularly to New Haven from New York City (via Metro-North Railroad or Amtrak) and from Boston and Washington, DC (via Amtrak). US Air provides connections to Tweed-New Haven Airport from many U.S. cities. Bradley International Airport in Hartford (BDL) accommodates all major airlines (including economy airlines such as Southwest) and has direct flights to most major cities. It is located about 40 miles north of New Haven and may be reached by either car or Connecticut Limousine's Shuttle Service. The three major New York airports - John F. Kennedy (JFK), LaGuardia (LGA), and Newark (EWR) - are all accessible from New Haven by train or Q-Conn Shuttle or Car Service. Newark Airport has an Amtrak stop that connects directly to New Haven, making EWR particularly convenient. Similarly, LaGuardia Airport is connected to the Metro-North Railroad by a New York City local bus (the M60), making transfers to New Haven from LGA both convenient and economical.

Due to the limited number of available spaces, we ask that you request housing only if you are a student who has not received funding from your university to attend, or have other financial needs that would preclude you from attending the conference if free housing is not provided.
