AFLA 20

UT Arlington, in the heart of the DFW Metroplex

The conference will be held at the UT Arlington main campus in Pickard Hall. Maps of the campus and directions for getting here from the airport can be found at UT Arlington’s map site.

Arlington is situated within the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. The two major airports serving this area are Dallas Love Field (DAL) and DFW International Airport (DFW).

Accommodations: We have reserved a block of rooms for May 16-18 at a special conference rate at the Hilton Arlington. To reserve your room and take advantage of the conference rate, you may either book online at the following website:

Transportation: Arlington has the unfortunate reputation of being one of the US’s largest cities with no public transportation.

We have arranged for a charter bus service to go between the Arlington Hilton and the conference site on the UTA campus. We have tried our best to schedule this service for times when we expect the most need for it. Below is a schedule for this bus service.
