  • See: NIST visitor information. We opted out of hotel packages because most organizations tell us that they can get the same or cheaper rates on their own. (We were told the hotels that you are there to attend a meeting at NIST, they will give you a good rate.) The NIST visitor info page provides a list of hotels and other local assets:     (1D)

On-site attendees should plan to be at the gate of the NIST (Gaithersburg, Maryland, US) campus by 8:00am EDT on Apr-18 (day-1), as signing in, and getting there to the meeting venue, are expected to take a little time.     (1H3)
