About Rice

Rice University’s heavily wooded 290-acre self-contained campus lies within Houston’s Museum District. Houston, the fourth largest city in the United States, has two international airports with direct flights from Europe and Africa. It offers a vibrant and diverse urban setting for the conference, with many world-class museums and other attractions. We look forward to welcoming you to the conference next June!
