and Conference Site

The conference will be held in the Main Auditorium of the IBM Learning Center at Armonk (please note that the location has changed, see directions to IBM).


All New York area airports are at a reasonable distance from the conference hotels below. See the transportation links of the hotels for driving directions and taxi/shuttle information. It is also possible to get to Tarrytown by taking the Hudson Line of Metro North Railroad. The train station in Tarrytown is close (but not exactly walking distance) to the hotels but there is a taxi stand at the station. Trains to Tarrytown leave from Grand Central Station in New York City. If you are flying in to LaGuardia Airport, it might be faster to get on the train at the W125 Street station. See the link to trains below for the schedule. Also see this link for different options to get to New York City from the JFK airport.


A limited number of rooms have been reserved in two hotels in Tarrytown. Please make sure that you confirm your rate along with your hotel reservation! The rooms will be allotted first-come first-served and IPCO cannot guarantee the availability of these special rates to all participants.
