4th Annual McMaster Optimization Conference: Theory and Applications

July 28-30, 2004

    McMaster University, Hamilton, ON Canada


Hamilton is conveniently located in the heart of Southeastern Ontario, one of Canada's most prosperous areas. The Great Lakes and the Niagara region are within easy drives. The flight possibilities are excellent. The McMaster campus is a 45-minute drive from Toronto's Pearson International Airport. Hamilton is also served by its own international airport.

For transportation to and from Pearson Airport, we have negotiated special rates with Airways Transit ($38 per person - shuttle van) and Symphony Limousine ($95 flat rate - private car). Please be sure to mention "MOPTA" when making your reservation. If you would like to rent a car, there are several car rental agencies at Pearson Airport.
