Welcome to the Local Excursions Program for ICSE.

  • Excursions include trips for shopping, museums, dancing, walking, and a pedal-cart tour.
  • Register for excursions (and pay for those requiring advance payments) at the conference registration desk.
  • Each trip has a minimum size and maximum capacity; trips not meeting the minimum size will be cancelled and money refunded.
  • All trips will depart from in front of the registration desk.
  • Many trips will use public transportation—our Metro area light-rail and/or bus.
  • Each trip will be escorted to its destination by a member of the conference volunteer staff; for most trips, a return escort will be provided as well.
