Flagstaff is located in Northern Arizona at an elevation close to 7,000 feet. It is situated at the base of the San Francisco Peaks (the highest mountains in Arizona) and is situated among ponderosa pine trees. Population is about 57,000. By mid-September, summer monsoons in Flagstaff will have hopefully disappeared. Temperatures will be quite comfortable during the day (avg. daily temps for September: high 73 and low 41) but will drop significantly for the evening, so be sure to bring some warm clothes.

Flagstaff is about 2 hours north of Phoenix and about 4 hours east of Las Vegas at the crossroads of Interstates 17 and 40. The south rim of the Grand Canyon is about 1 hours from Flagstaff.

Flagstaff is home to Northern Arizona University (NAU), where our conference will be held. NAU is home to over 11,000 undergraduates but the total student population is 18,000 due to extensive distance learning programs.
