Purdue University is on Eastern Time and we do observe Daylight Saving Time.  Here are some helpful links to airport shuttles from Indianapolis and Chicago O'Hare Airports.

Please note: Our Chinese conference participants and other International travelers will have shuttles provided to and from Chicago O’hare Airport.  The timeline and details will be provided two weeks from the start date of the conference.

For our participants using air travel to attend the conference we request that you fly into/out of O’Hare International Airport (ORD).  Based upon the grouping of participant arrival times we will be provide a number of shuttle pickup times for the 2.5 hour ride from ORD to Purdue on October 19 and Oct 21 and also transportation to the final conference dinner and final night hotel stay in Chicago on October 24 for the flight out of ORD on Oct 25.  If you do not choose to wait for the Purdue shuttle, commercial shuttles such as Express Air Coach or Lafayette Limo may have shuttle times more suitable to your schedule. If you are flying into or out of Indianapolis International airport (IND) please specify so in the registration form. Based on the itineraries we receive we will try to coordinate a shuttle to Purdue or direct you to a commercial shuttle service such as Lafayette Limo or Star of America which may be your best option for timely travel to and from Purdue.

If you are attending the final conference dinner cruise in Chicago and leaving the next day from ORD please consider taking the Purdue shuttle post dinner to the Hilton Garden Inn at O’hare International Airport for your final night stay. The final night stay at the Hilton Garden Inn is free of charge for our international guests and will be arranged by the organizing committee.
