- X-Ray Crystallography Collaboratory
- Combustion Corridor
- Earth Systems GRID
- Particle Physics Data GRID
Who is planning to come?
What will be discussed?
- Deployment updates from testbed planners;
- Initial applications experiences;
- Definition of end-to-end service goals;
- Evaluation of testbed peerings;
- Placement of QUALIT active and passive measurement machines;
- Identification of local-area infrastructure obstacles to
- Interdomain QoS signaling and reservation migration path;

They are blocking 15 rooms for the night of May 25th (1 night) at
the rate of $65.00.
All reservations must be confirmed by May 20th.
Guest to call and reserve rooms on own.
Location Benefits: Located within the Argonne National Laboratory campus, 5 minutes by van to any part of the campus.
Restaurants/Lounges: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served in our restaurant.
To reach Argonne from O'Hare Airport, drive east (toward
Chicago) on Interstate 190 to the exit for Interstate 294 south
(toward Indiana). Go south on Interstate 294 to the exit for
Interstate 55 south (toward St. Louis). I294 is a toll road, so you
will need $0.95 in change (there are two tolls at $0.40 and one at
$0.15) for the automatic lanes. Alternatively, you can use the manual
lanes with a human toll taker. Take I55 south to the exit for South
Cass Avenue. Exit at South Cass Ave, drive over the overpass, and you
will see the sign for Argonne National Laboratory. Follow the signs
and turn into the Laboratory entrance on Northgate Road. Unless you
have an Argonne or APS User pass, you will need to stop at the Argonne
Information Center to obtain a pass.
Take Cicero Avenue north to the entrance to Interstate 55 south
(toward St. Louis), which will be on your left, then proceed as
Entering the Argonne Site
The Argonne Guest House is on Outer Circle Drive near Meridian, just
west of the Mobil Service Station. When you reach Argonne, request
further directions from the Argonne Information Center or at the
gate. There are signs indicating the route from the gate to the Guest
Admission to the site is normally arranged
in advance by your Argonne contact person, but can be arranged by the
Guest House Staff. Be sure to indicate if your expected arrival time
will coincide with the normal Argonne Information Center hours
(8:30-5:00, M-F). The Guest House desk is attended 24 hours.
