OSG All-Hands Meeting 2018 – Local Details¶
For information about hotels, please see the hotels page.
The meeting will be in the Officers Club (150 S Fort Douglas Blvd) on the University of Utah campus. Their site contains photos and maps of the location. Room assignments will be shown in the Indico timetable and there will be signs in the facility with each day’s schedule.
Salt Lake City is easy to navigate, and most roads are laid out on a simple north-south/east-west grid system. There is a local shorthand for describing locations relative to the city center (Temple Square), which is very logical but may take a bit of getting used to. The University is east of the center, nestled up against the mountains, and the airport is to the west. All the usual mapping tools will help get you around town.
Here are some transportation resources for the University and Salt Lake City:
- Transportation help from the University Guest House
- Transportation help from the University International office
- Salt Lake City International Airport
- Utah Transit Authority (UTA) – bus and TRAX light rail in Salt Lake City area
- University of Utah shuttle bus and Live Shuttle Tracking
- Uber and Lyft are both active at the airport and around the city
(The University of Utah and Open Science Grid do not endorse or recommend any particular third-party transportation services. The links above refer to only some of the available transportation options.)
The conference hotel has its own parking lot and is a very short walk to the Officers Club, so there is no need for separate hotel and conference parking if you stay there.
For attendees who drive to the meeting from elsewhere, we will be assigned a parking lot and you can park there for free during the days of the meeting. Details on which parking lot to use will be posted closer to the event.
