MMS Magnetospheric Multiscale  

at the University of Iowa

Iowa City, Iowa

March 24-April 1, 2014

 
  
 

We recommend taking a shuttle from the airport to Iowa City. If you book a round trip, there is a price break.

 

You don't need a car in Iowa City, if you stay at the Sheraton or Hotel Vetro. These hotels are within a few blocks of Van Allen Hall and other campus buildings, where the meetings will be held. There are many restaurants downtown, near the campus and hotels.
