CAIDA is one of the several research groups based at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) on the UC San Diego campus. For general directions to the SDSC, see the SDSC Visitor Information page, which also includes hotel information and information about scheduling tours of SDSC. For visitations with the researchers at CAIDA, it is recommended that you contact to schedule your visit in advance unless you are already expected for a conference, workshop, meeting.
CAIDA offices are located in the central portion of the SDSC building. They can be reached from the west off Ridge Walk which takes you directly to the 1st floor lobby of the central building. To reach this lobby from the east entrance of SDSC, take the next flight of stairs up. (Alternatively from the east entrance you can take the elevator (on the left) to the 1st floor. Turning left off the elevator, go through the double doors into the central lobby.)
