Coming to the Conference


Networking 2005 will be held on the campus of the University of Waterloo, in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. The campus is accessible by air, rail, and road, and is within easy driving range of Toronto, the Niagara Peninsula and three of the Great Lakes.

Attendees arriving by air will likely wish to arrive at Toronto's Pearson International Airport, the largest in Canada. It is slightly more than an hour away, and served by many of the major carriers. Ground transportation to Waterloo can be arranged through Airways Transit. Some travellers may also wish to investigate Northwest Airlines' connections from Detroit to Kitchener-Waterloo International Airport.

Shuttles will be available between the hotels and the conference venues.
