StampedeCon 2013 will be held in St. Louis on the campus of one of the foremost medical research organizations in the United States: the Washington University School of Medicine–home of world-class research and computing facilities, such as those at The Genome Institute. The campus conference facilities at the Eric P. Newman Education Center (EPNEC) offer comfortable, stadium-style seating and high-quality A/V systems that make it easy to see and hear the presentations. Also, the MetroLink light rail system connects directly from its Lambert St. Louis International Airport stations to less than 1/2 block away from the conference center at its Central West End station. See EPNEC’s parking and directions page for more details or see the information below.
