Travel Information:

We are looking forward to seeing you at the Young Researchers Conference to be held October 1 - 3, 2023 at Cornell University in Ithaca New York. Here is some information about airport options.

Ithaca Airport: The best option for flying would be arriving at the Ithaca airport.  It is only three miles away from Cornell campus, and an easy taxi/uber/lyft ride to get to and from. Many hotels provide shuttle service to and from the airport as well as around town.

Syracuse Airport: While Syracuse has a lot more flight options, it is a bit over an hour lyft/uber ride to get from Syracuse to Ithaca. You can rent a car via this link.

Other nearby airports (less than an hour drive) are Elmira and Binghamton. Both are quite small.

NYC Airports: The last option would be flying into any of the major NYC airports and taking a bus to Ithaca.  This is the longest option, as most buses from NYC to Ithaca take about 4.5 hours.  Some options on buses include:

-Cornell Campus to Campus: Most comfortable option that leaves from the Cornell Club in midtown NYC and drops you off right on Cornell campus in Ithaca.

-OurBus: Has options leaving from either the George Washington Bridge or Port Authority to downtown Ithaca.  From downtown it is a short cab ride to get to Ithaca.
