Travel Support

Depending on participation levels, we expect to cover your transportation (flight or current federal mileage rate) and double-occupancy lodging costs for as many participants as possible. Please choose the least expensive option so that we can provide transportation funds to as many interested people as possible. If you expect your flight will cost more than $700, please contact us first. See reimbursement instructions below.

Meeting Location

University of Cincinnati Campus


Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG)
17 miles southwest of campus


Fairfield Inn & Suites Cincinnati Uptown / University Area

Double-occupancy room and tax lodging charges will be direct-billed to the meeting account. A personal credit card will be required to hold the room and for incidentals at check-in. See application form for roommate placement options. After the application period closes and when all roommates have been assigned, you will be contacted with your reservation confirmation.

If you prefer a single over a double room, you will need to pay 100% of the room cost and will be reimbursed for 50% of the cost. After the application period closes you will be contacted with your reservation confirmation and payment details.

Reimbursement Instructions:

After your in-person application is approved, please submit your airfare reimbursement request as soon as possible so we know your travel itinerary and can make lodging arrangements accordingly. If the total cost of your airfare does not exceed the $700 allowance, we will also reimburse you for round trip airport transportation, up to a combined total of $700. An additional reimbursement request can be submitted along with itemized airport transportation receipts after the conclusion of the meeting.

If you are driving and/or chose single occupancy lodging, please submit your mileage and lodging (50% of the total cost) reimbursement request after the conclusion of the meeting.

For in-person attendees, we will reimburse the cost of public transportation (Lyft/Uber/Taxi/Bus) from the meeting site, to dinner, and back to the hotel for each evening of the meeting. If you wish to request reimbursement, please save itemized receipts and include these costs in your post-meeting reimbursement request.

All reimbursements should be requested as per the instructions on the University of Idaho Institute for Interdisciplinary Data Sciences (IIDS) Travel Support Request Form.
