Oxford is located between the airports of Greater Cincinnati to the south and Dayton to the north. Each airport is about one hour away by car. The Cincinnati airport is larger than Dayton and will handle most of the air traffic to our area. (Cincinnati is a hub for Delta and Dayton is a hub for USAir.) Cincinnati is also an international airport and provides direct flights to England and several European cities. The main problem with airport transportation is that there is no regularly scheduled shuttle service between Oxford and the airports. For those participants renting a car this is not a problem. The organizing committee will provide airport shuttle service between Cincinnati/Dayton and Oxford during the major arrival and departure times of the conference period. We will need the airport, airline, flight number and time for registered participants wanting to have shuttle service between these two airports and Oxford. If known, you may send this information by e-mail to one of the conference organizers listed below. Details to be arranged later. For those arriving in Oxford by car, visitor parking permits are free and easily arranged for campus parking. You may wish to alert the organizers if you are bringing a car.
