SQuInT'01 Annual Meeting

sponsored by Caltech, JPL, and the Institute for Quantum Information



Meeting logistics:

1. Campus Maps -- some handy maps of the Caltech campus are available from the Caltech web page at http://www.caltech.edu/subpages/about.html.

2. Parking -- on friday and sunday, we recommend parking in the North Wilson (Bldg #65 on the interactive map, #123 on the printable map) and South Wilson (a new garage just south of #65/#123) parking structures. On saturday we recommend parking in the Holliston parking structure (Bldg #66). *** On FRIDAY you MUST limit your parking to UNRESERVED spaces (spaces without anyone's name painted on them). ***

3. Hotel shuttles -- the Sheraton Hotel will run its own shuttle service to and from Caltech 8am-9am on friday/saturday/sunday, 6pm-7pm friday, 7pm-8pm saturday, and 1pm-2pm sunday. We also have two minivans to run **limited** shuttle services between the Courtyard/Saga hotels and Caltech. On friday morning we will pick up at 8:00am and 8:30am from both locations, then arrange further shuttle trips as necessary. Please carpool if you can.

4. Registration check-in -- just show up at the Beckman Institute (Bldg #74) on friday morning. We'll have a registration desk there where you can pick up your badge, pay your fee if you haven't yet, and get a receipt for the registration fee.

5. Meals -- breakfast (fri/sat/sun) and lunch (fri/sat) will be provided on location. Dinners will be on your own, and there are plenty of nice restaurants within walking distance of both campus and the hotels. In lieu of a conference banquet (too many people!) there will be some live yet (hopefully) unobtrusive entertainment at the poster session on saturday. Please be nice to the guy!
