Biennial History of Astronomy Workshop - ND XV June 21-24, 2023

Travel to the Workshop

We will try to provide transportation for anyone flying into South Bend. Send an e-mail to Matt Dowd with your flight information (airline/flight number, and arrival time) and we might be able to have someone pick you up at the airport.

We will also do our best to arrange transportation back to the airport, so long as the departure time does not overlap with the workshop.  If you wish return transportation to the airport, be sure to include departure information in your e-mail.
