1. We recommend you use BWI - Baltimore Washington International Airport since Frostburg State University will provide us shuttle transportation between the airport and FSU with tips to drivers ($20 for one way, about 140 miles). Because we have relatively few participants requested for using the shuttles (most people drive to Frostburg), we decided to remove the shuttle schedules, and provide a more flexible service. If you need the service please send email to as soon as possible. We will only guarantee the shuttle for people contacted us and got our confirmation.
    Attention: Please tell us your arriving flight numbers, time, and dates, so we can meet you at the terminal gate. When we go to pick you, we will wear a conference T-shirt (see the pattern by clicking here) for you to recognize us. Please also tell us your reture flight date and time so we can arrange the shuttles for you. Call Hongqi at 301-687-4168 if need and he can contact drivers.
