Transportation


There are two airports in Northern Taiwan:  Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (Airport Code: TPE) and Taipei Songshan Airport (Airport Code: TSA).  Most attendees arrive in Taiwan at TPE. The journey from TPE to our symposium venue is about 50 kilometers. TSA was a domestic airport but now it has flights between Mainland China, Japan and Korea.  Therefore if you are from Mainland China, Japan or Korea, we recommend you to pick TSA.  It takes 1/2 time to reach our symposium venue compared to TPE.
