IFIP Working Group 2.11, Thirteenth Meeting
March 17-20, 2014, Pittsburgh, USA
The meeting will be held at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in USA, March 17-20, hosted by Christian Kästner. The meeting starts March 17 in the morning, and ends with lunch on March 20.
We will meet on the CMU campus, for directions see schedule below.
The Pittsburgh International Airport is quite well connected in the US. The only direct flight to Europe is to Paris a few days a week.
The airport is somewhat outside of the town. You can either take a taxi (30-40 min, about 50-60 USD incl. tip) or the 28X bus (60-80 min, every 30 min until Midnight, 3.75 USD cash only, no change given). The bus takes a pretty direct route and stops directly in front of the hotels (the Hilton is at the bus stop "Forbes Av at McKee Place"). Its final stop is right in front of the CMU campus. Here is a map and schedule.
The hotels are within walking distance from campus (15 to 30 minutes), but there are many buses running along Forbes Avenue and 5th Avenue as well, especially all 61 buses which should go every 10 minutes or so. When going toward campus, you pay when exiting the bus, when going toward downtown you pay when entering. It's a bit confusing but the bus driver will tell you. Again, cash only, no change. All hotels have shuttles that you can arrange to drive you anywhere within a 3 mile radius, including campus.
We recommend to stay at the Hilton Garden Inn, Pittsburgh University Place where we have reserved a block of rooms for attendees. Follow this link to make reservations: http://ow.ly/qho6O. You can also make reservations over the phone at +1 412-683-2040.
When booking your room, please make sure to use our special rate quote "CIS" at $119/night. The rooms will be held through February 16, 2014 so be sure to book before then. For more information on the Hilton Garden Inn, see link http://pittsburghuniversityplace.hgi.com
If you prefer a different hotel, other hotels within walking distance include Hampton Inn ($119) and Wyndham ($144) and many more are a short bus trip away. If you choose to stay at another location, aside from the Hilton Garden Inn, please contact Jamie Lou Hagerty at email@example.com to arrange reservations at the university rate.

Sharing a taxi from the hotel or university to the airport
- Add your name and time of departure here if you are interested in sharing a taxi back to the airport.
Kevin Hammond: I'm flying back on Sunday (1535 flight). I was thinking of hiring a car after the meeting and heading out to the Gettysburg civil war battlefield on Saturday, staying over for a couple of nights (Fri/Sat) and driving back to the airport on Sunday. I might stop at FallingWater on the way there (Friday). If anyone wants to join me, please contact me!
Sunday trip to Fallingwater
Fallingwater is a house designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935. It's a place worth visiting and roughly a 75-minute drive away from Pittsburgh. There are guided tours through the house. See http://www.fallingwater.org/ and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallingwater for details.
For those arriving already on Saturday, we could rent a car/bus and arrange a trip to Fallingwater on Sunday March 16. The tour costs $23 and shared costs for the trip are probably $10-$25 per person. In a previous poll we had a number of people interested. If your interested, leave your name below and Christian will contact you for a more detailed organization two weeks before the meeting.
