The symposium is held in the French Quarter. Here are some tips to get around.

The best way to get to/from the symoposium is the Streetcar and/or foot. If your impatient or stay out too late (Streetcars stop running at 1AM) you can fetch a Taxi. "Directions to Astor Crowne Plaza": Taxi Cab fare from the airport to French Quarter is $30 each way for up to two people and $10 per person 3 to 5 people. Local fares are $2 for the drop charge and $1.20 per mile. Each additional person in $1.00. - United Cab - (504) 522-9771 - Yellow Cab - (504) 525-3311 Rent-a-Car There are rent-a-car offices at the airport. I suggest not renting a car and parking it in the French Quarter.
