Stanford University is a large world-renowned campus in Palo Alto, California. The conference’s co-sponsor, Palo Alto University, is a short 10 minute drive away from the Stanford campus. Stanford is situated within the beautiful Northern California Bay Area just 37 miles south of San Francisco. The city of Palo Alto is vibrant community and a central location of technological innovation and development, within the heart of Silicon Valley. Stanford University is a 30 minute drive from San Francisco Airport (SFO) and a 20 minute drive from San Jose Airport (SJC) with direct flights from several major hubs. Take a well-deserved vacation for the July 4th weekend in any one of the Bay Area’s surrounding destination locations (San Francisco, Yosemite National Park, Napa Valley Wine Country, Lake Tahoe, Carmel, Santa Cruz, Half Moon Bay, Calistoga), and then end your vacation with an exhilarating trip to the Division 45 conference from July 7-9!
