Venue and Attractions

Washington DC is not only the nation's capital and home of the U.S. government, but also one of the most lively and culturally diverse cities in the country. Scores of museums, memorials, performance centers and galleries make it one of the most visited places in the country. In particular, the National Mall, pictured above, is a major destination with many of the Smithsonian Institution's affiliated museums, as well as the White House and the Capitol Building, and the close-by Library of Congress.

The National Mall, the Capitol Building, Library of Congress, Union Station, Newseum, the National Building Museum and many other attractions are only a five minutes' walk from the conference hotel.

The following links describe a few of the local attractions.

From both Dulles and BWI, there are express bus services by WMATA (Washington Metropolitan Area Transport Authority) which connect to the metro system.
