Special Tours:

Monday, June 28, 2010:  Birck Nanotechnology Center Facility
The set of detailed tours of the BNC will focus on facility construction, infrastructure, and operation.  Tours will be given by staff highly familiar with the design, construction, and operation of the facility.
Tuesday, June 29, 2010:  Neil Armstrong Hall of Engineering
The tour of Armstrong Hall will focus on an innovative, hands-on Freshman Engineering curriculum and the supporting laboratories for that program.  Additionally, memorabilia from the moon landings will be present for viewing – including a lunar sample.
Wednesday, June 30, 2010:  Birck Nanotechnology Center Research
The set of tours of the BNC cleanroom and laboratories will focus on the research being performed in each area of the facility.  Tours will be given by researchers who work in the laboratories and cleanroom.



The Purdue Memorial Union is the conference headquarters and is attached to the Union Club Hotel.  Transportation from the two other conference hotels is provided by a complimentary hotel shuttle.  Please make individual arrangements for transportation with your hotel if you are not staying at the Union Club Hotel.  Some other area hotels also provide a complimentary shuttle to the Purdue Memorial Union.
If you are driving a personal vehicle to campus, a complimentary parking pass for the parking garage next to the Purdue Memorial Union will be provided upon request.
The Birck Nanotechnology Center and Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship (MRGN) are located just under ¾ mile from the Purdue Memorial Union.  While most participants will most likely wish to walk, transportation will be provided for those who would prefer to travel by van.  Bus transportation will be provided in event of inclement weather.
The Neil Armstrong Hall of Engineering is located just under ½ mile from the Purdue Memorial Union.  While most participants will most likely wish to walk, transportation will be provided for those who would prefer to travel by van.  Bus transportation will be provided in event of inclement weather.
The Trails is located approximately six miles from campus.  Bus transportation will be provided.
