The 14th annual Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Disease meeting will be held at
Cornell University on June 3 – 5, 2016

Cornell University is located in Ithaca, NY, in the heart of the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. Information about the area can be found here.

Air Travel
The local airport is the Ithaca-Tompkins Regional Airport (code ITH) and is served by American, United, and Delta airlines. This is by far the most convenient airport to fly into, as it is located approximately 15 minutes from the central Cornell campus. However, as it is a small commuter airport, flights are limited and we encourage you to book your tickets early.
Regional airports in Elmira (ELM) and Binghamton (BGM) are roughly an hour away from Ithaca. Syracuse (SYR) has a larger airport and is roughly 90 minutes from Cornell. Rochester (ROC) has more flight options but is closer to two hours away. We will not provide transport to and from the more distant airports.
It is also possible to fly into New York City and take a commercial bus into Ithaca.

Conference Lodging
We have reserved a large block of rooms in campus housing for the 2016 EEID conference. The rooms are in walking distance of the conference meeting site and are a short drive or bus ride from downtown. On-campus housing will be in townhouse suites, with multiple bedrooms sharing a bathroom and kitchenette. Single bedrooms are $90/night and shared bedrooms are $60/night. More detail can be found here.

To reserve a room, you will need to click the Sign Up button at the bottom of this page. You will then be guided through the housing registration process, including the option to choose roommates. The housing login and password are distinct from your Registration and Abstract login and password.
