    More on El Paso, Texas

    NAFIPS 2016 will be held in a city that stretches the imagination -- El Paso, Texas' westernmost city, surprisingly closer to San Diego than to Houston, and tucked between New Mexico and Mexico. From the campus you can see both states and both countries. El Paso is a city of nearly three-quarters of a million people, which sprawls across hundreds of square miles of desert and rambling foothills. The Franklin Mountains, southern tip of the Rockies, slice El Paso nearly in two. El Paso's dry, sunny, warm desert climate earned the city the nickname ``Sun City". This climate makes it easy to enjoy the outdoor activities that abound in the area, including hiking in the Franklin Mountains, which rise to over 7,000 feet inside the city limits. With its classic Western geography and tri-cultural history, El Paso makes an intriguing place to visit.
