General Information about visiting the NSF and the local area.

Most attendees are staying at the  Westin Arlington Gateway, about 300m from the NSF. Attendees who check in Thursday,  will receive a folder with Workshop materials. Otherwise, folder pick-up in Room 110 Friday morning.

The walk to the NSF from the Westin is easy. Map and Directions.

As a visitor, you must use the entrance at the corner of 9th Street North and North Stuart Street. You will need  a picture ID in order to obtain a visitor badge.

All laptops will be scanned for viruses, a procedure that takes just a few moments.

Breakfast and lunch are free at the Workshop. There will be a Workshop dinner at a local restaurant Friday night. We hope that you can make it.

Reimbursement is through Cornell University. Send receipts and completed form to
