A sign-up sheet will be available at the registration desk if you would like to be picked up from NIST by an airport shuttle or taxi at the end of the workshop. Please provide this information as early as possible. Please be aware that if you make arrangements to be picked up at NIST without first signing up at the registration desk, the taxi/shuttle will not be allowed inside the NIST gate, and you must meet the vehicle at the NIST Visitor Center (Gate A -- Main Gate), which is a 10-minute walk from Building 101.
