Please contact Becky Warner (email@example.com) with your travel
plans. She will coordinate transportation from airports to the
Observatory. If you are driving you may find information on our
website helpful, especially as regards the best routes through the
mountains: http://www.gb.nrao.edu/visitors/visitors.shtml. Watch
for deer from dusk to dawn.
Lodging and meals:
Workshop participants will be housed at the
Observatory or in nearby motels. You should check in at the Observatory
Residence Hall lobby for detailed information. Meals will be provided
in the Observatory cafeteria; if you have specific dietary requirements please
communicate them to Becky Warner (firstname.lastname@example.org).
After 7 PM there is no restaurant open within many miles of
Green Bank. There will be snacks available in the Residence Hall
Lounge, but if you plan on arriving late you may want to arrange to
have sandwitches or other food set aside for you. Please contact
Becky Warner (email@example.com).
Green Bank is at an altitude of 840 m (2700 ft), so evenings are
often cool. Bring a light sweater or jacket. Rain is a possibility.
The Green Bank Observatory is in the National Radio Quiet
Zone, and we spend considerable effort in maintaining the radio
environment. Portable phones will not work near the Observatory, and
there are no wireless networks on site. We do have ample ethernet
connectivity. Please disable your laptop's transmitter while you
are at the Observatory and keep it turned off when not in use.
Scientific sessions will be in the Jansky Lab Auditorium.
