iLRN 2020 Location & Venue

The conference sessions for iLRN 2020 will take place on the campus of California Polytechnic State University (“Cal Poly”), in the city of San Luis Obispo, California, USA.

San Luis Obispo (or “SLO,” as it is called by its residents) lies about halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco on the California Coast. Major US Highway 101 and State Highway 1 run through it. It is about a 10-minute drive from the coast and beaches such as Pismo Beach, Grover Beach, and Morro Bay.

SLO is located within 3 hours from both San Jose and Los Angeles, but it probably takes closer to 3.5 hours to get there from San Francisco Airport (SFO). It has an active regional airport with connecting flights to SFO, LAX, Phoenix (PHX), Denver (DEN), and Seattle (SEA).

Destinations within town (like Cal Poly, airport, train station, downtown, all hotels) are no more than a 10-minute drive away from one another, and many are accessible by foot with pavements and low kerbs for wheelchairs.
