Traveling to Burlington

Burlington has an international airport (BTV). The cab fare from the airport to downtown (near the University) is approximately $20.

By private car, Burlington is three and a half hours away from Boston and less than two hours away from Montreal (please allow more time to clear customs; it can take anywhere betweeen 20 minutes to over an hour).

By bus, Burlington is about four hours away from Boston (served by Megabus and Greyhound) and three hours away from Montreal (served by Greyhound).

One can also ride the train to Essex Junction, which is 15 minutes away from UVM (the station is served by Amtrak) or by ferry across Lake Champlain from the state of New York.

Schedule

We will have talks from approximately 9am to 5pm on Saturday September 10, and from 9am to 1pm on Sunday September 11.

The talks will be held in Votey 105. Contrary to what was noted before, there is free parking right by the building where the talks will be held. Here is a parking map.

Hotel

We have reserved a block of rooms at the Hilton Burlington, at the cost of $209 plus tax (~$232) per night, in single or double occupancy. To make a reservation, please call 1-800-445-8667 and mention the special rate code AGC (for Anabelian Geometry Conference). Alternatively, you can reserve a room online on our dedicated Hilton reservation site. All rooms must be booked by August 17.

Graduate students who would like help finding someone to share a room with can contact Christelle Vincent.

There are some more economical options outside of the downtown Burlington area. Most likely they would require using a car to travel to campus. There is easy parking on campus near our venue; here is a parking map.

Finally, Burlington Hostel offers dorm-style accommodations in a central location for $45 (plus tax) per night per person. The hostel offers free wifi, linens, breakfast, and storage lockers.

Internet on campus

The University of Vermont offers eduroam on campus. To access the network at UVM, please take a few minutes to set up your laptop before traveling, while you are on your home university campus.
