The entire conference and pre-conference is at UIC. The Forum is a
revenue generating part of UIC. The pre-conference will be at the
University Libraries on Monday with the exception of the Drupal one.
The hotel is a mile or thereabouts from UIC Forum. Here is the problem
with us natives planning. It never crossed our minds that walking a mile
while on the *upper limit* of our shuttling to and from work is not the
norm for everyone. This was brought to our attention and we will have a
shuttle from the Hotel to the Conference venue.
