Conference Location

ASU is a massive Research One university, giving the conference access to a great diversity of programs, practices, and scholars working here. MOCO at ASU presents a unique opportunity to build upon existing fields of interests and forge new avenues for research and knowledge creation that resonate across the arts and sciences and branch into health, philosophy, education and other application areas that include both computational techniques and human movement. The range of interdisciplinary labs, centers and beautiful October weather make this an ideal locale for the conference. ASU is located about fifteen minutes from the Phoenix Airport.
