If you want to take an AAIE Esperanto examination (at any of the three levels: basic, intermediate, advanced), see the pages for the Program and for Invited Guests. You must arrange for testing before the beginning of the congress (the registration form has a place to request the test).

Getting to Austin

Austin is located in Central Texas, 3 hours south of Dallas, 1.5 hours north of San Antonio and 3 hours west of Houston.

The Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is a short drive of about 5 miles from the congress site.

The Congress Site

The site of the congress is Concordia University at Austin. We will have the use of several buildings containing an auditorium and large classrooms. A large modern dormitory and a cafeteria where meals will be provided are a short walk from these buildings. The outside air will probably be hot, but all the buildings are air-conditioned.

Starting Friday afternoon, there will be a registration and information booth in the Concordia University at Austin, our congress site. There you can sign in and receive your congress materials.

If you arrive on Friday before the registration booth is open, you can go directly to the ELNA board meeting in the building.

What To Bring

Non-US citizens of course should bring a passport or original birth certificate for crossing the borders. The US State Department has information on foreign citizens travelling to the US. Be sure to arrange your visa and passport issues soon.

Comfortable casual clothing is appropriate. Outdoors will probably be hot, but all buildings are air-conditioned. You might check the Austin weather predictions right before coming.
