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. > > While we're on the subject, are the pre-conferences happening at the > same location?
