Conference Transportation and Meal information:

The conference will be held at the University of San Francisco (USF):

2130 Fulton Street, San Francisco, CA 94117-1080

 For transportation options to get to USF see:

Please note that USF (University of San Francisco, where the conference will be held) is NOT to be confused with SFSU (San Francisco State University) or UCSF (University of California, San Francisco)

 By Bus:

The conference hotel is the Parc 55 Hilton. It is 2.6 miles from the university, and is near the intersection of Powell and Market streets. At that intersection you can take the 5 or 5R (rapid) bus to USF. It is about at 30-minute ride.

By Cab or Ride Share:

Uber, Lyft, Sidecar, and Flywheel were started in San Francisco. All work just fine and will quickly get you to USF. You can also catch a cab or use the Flywheel application to digitally hail one. Using an app is recommended because getting a cab anywhere except in dense business and tourist areas is difficult. Please be aware that during the morning and afternoon rush, surge pricing may apply when using Uber.


Food will be available at the conference. Additionally the university cafeteria will be open. Otherwise our local hosts recommend these nearby establishments:

Velo Rouge Café: 798 Arguello Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94118

Twilight Café: 2600 McAllister St, San Francisco, CA 94118

Papalote: 1777 Fulton St, San Francisco, CA 94117

Barrel Head Brewhouse:  1785 Fulton St, San Francisco, CA 94117

Otherwise the world is your oyster on nearby Haight, Geary, and Clement streets. Using Yelp is recommended.
