Travel Information

Flying to Colorado

Workshop attendees are advised to fly to Denver International Airport (DIA). The airport is about 45 miles from Boulder.

Getting to Boulder

There are two convenient bus services between DIA and Boulder:

(1) SkyRide at DIA - RTD Public Transportation
To get to Boulder from DIA using the RTD bus, take the SkyRide AB Bus (the fare is $10, payable in cash to the driver; no change is given). The AB bus runs once an hour, roughly 15 or 20 mins after the hour. Check the schedule or visit the RTD booth in the airport for precise times. Get off at the University of Colorado stop at the corner of Broadway and 16th, near the University Memorial Center (UMC).
     • Find the SkyRide bus stop at DIA
     • Visit RTD's Website to view schedules
 (2) Super Shuttle - Door-to-door service
Another mode of transportation between DIA and Boulder is the Supershuttle (phone: 303-227-0000), which provides door-to-door service and also leaves DIA every hour.

No reservations are required for either service for travel from DIA to Boulder. Advance reservations are required, however, for SuperShuttle travel from Boulder to DIA. The trip takes about one hour.

Finding the Workshop Venue

The workshop will take place in the Duane Physical Laboratories, which are on the south side of Colorado Ave, across the street from the football stadium. The Gamow Tower is part of the Duane complex. It's the tallest building on the main campus, so you can't miss it! If you enter the tower from the stadium side of the building, the Physics Department office is straight ahead: turn left and walk down the hallway to reach room G1B30.

Visas for International Visitors

The U.S. has strict visa policies for visitors and you should apply for your visa well in advance of your departure date. For details that may apply specifically to your country, see information posted by your nearest U.S. consulate or embassy: http://www.usembassy.gov/

Some US consulates require a printed invitation on conference/university letterhead and with an original signature as part of the visa application. The organizers will provide such letters on request. Please contact David Walba if you need a formal invitation letter.
