2016 Travel & Accomodations

Digital Frontiers 2016 will be held at the Rice University BioScience Research Collaborative, 6500 Main Street, Houston, Texas, 77005.

There are a number of hotels adjacent to and within walking distance of the conference facility. Because promotional rates for many hotels are often lower than the block rates offered to conferences, we encourage attendees to use their institituonal rates at these hotels, or research alternative lodging options.

All lodging, dining, and transportation resources are for informational purposes only, and are shared without endorsement or recommendation.
