Symposium Venue and Transportation

Location and Climate

The symposium will be held at the Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay, about 25 km from the Kona International Airport at Keaholeon Hawaii's Big Island. The resort sits on the Kona Coast and features 10 acres of oceanfront properties. The “Big Island” of Hawaii has a mild and temperate climate, relatively free from uncomfortable extremes. The average temperature on Kona during the period of the symposium varies between 18 °C (low) and 26 °C (daytime high). The warm, tropical rain falls primarily at night and helps to make the island a lush, green community with fresh air and many waterfalls.


It takes about 40 minutes (~$60) by taxi from the Kona Airport. There is no other public transportation from the airport. For more detail, visit the Sheraton Kona web site.
