Airport Express is one of the convenient and affordable public transportations between SFO and the conference venue.
Please note that we will have discounted travel option from the SFO airport to Sonoma (and back) by the Sonoma County Airport Express, which provides scheduled transportation 365 days a year between Sonoma County and San Francisco and Oakland Airports. Please use discount code
You can take the bus to the stop at the Petaluma Fairgrounds. The driver can arrange to have a taxi waiting to pick you up at the stop, or you can use Uber. The cost of an Uber from the Fairgrounds to the hotel is $22-29, so we estimate the cost of a cab would be slightly more, perhaps $35.
We are looking into other transportation options that get much closer to the hotel, and will update this page shortly.

Following the tradition of previous years, we will offer student participation support provided by SIGAI and SIGCHI to attend the IUI Conference. This support is in the form of a small stipend to cover the registration fee and partially cover the costs of travel and living expenses while attending the conference. The students will be reimbursed for their expenses after the conference. All students who get travel grants from SIGAI must send us a paragraph about their experience and a headshot before they will be reimbursed. You must be a member of SIGAI before you apply ($11 dues).
The objective of IUI's student support is to encourage students interested in subjects related to Intelligent User Interfaces to become active members of the IUI community. To apply, the student should be actively enrolled as a student in an academic institution. Priority will be given to students who are first authors of accepted papers and to participants in the doctoral consortium. Recipients of the stipend are also expected to help the conference organization as student volunteers. The level of support will be determined by the availability of funds and the number of eligible applications. The application should include:
It is possible for citizens of most countries to travel and enter the United States. Visa support letters will be generated for those who have registered and request them. If you need a visa to attend ACM IUI 2016, please send your request for a letter in support of a visa application to the ACM headquarters at firstname.lastname@example.org and include:
