SCSMI’s 2016 annual conference will be held on the campus of Cornell University in Ithaca, New York from Wednesday afternoon, June 1st through Saturday, June 4th, 2016. The conference will take place at the Statler Hotel, winner of the AAA Four Diamond Award, as well as local environs, Cayuga Lake and the Seneca Lake wine trail.

Ithaca is in upstate New York, roughly equidistant (about a 4-hour drive) from New York City; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Toronto, Ontario; and Montreal, Quebec; and a bit farther (a 5.5-hour drive) from Boston, Massachusetts.

One can fly into the Ithaca-Tompkins Regional Airport (about 10 minutes from campus) or the Syracuse Hancock International Airport (a 75-minute drive). Three international airports have flights into Ithaca – Newark (United Airlines), Philadelphia (USAirways/American), and Detroit (Delta); many others have flights into Syracuse. Car rentals are available at both Ithaca and Syracuse airports. Taxis can be called from the Ithaca airport and there is a shuttle service that can be prearranged to and from Syracuse. More information will be forthcoming.
