NIST - Boulder Lab Tours
The NIST tour option is sold out.
Tours of the NIST Boulder Laboratories will be available on the afternoon of Friday, 13 June 2008. Pre-registration (via conference registration on this website) is required due to heightened security at NIST.
Due to limited space availability, the number who can participate in the tours will be limited to 150 attendees, determined on a first-come, first-served basis among those who have pre-registered.
For those participating in the tours, there will be an additional conference fee of $25 to cover the cost of lunch at NIST and transportation by motor coach to and from NIST. You will NOT be allowed to use your own transportation for touring NIST.
For technical questions pertaining to the NIST-Boulder lab tours, please contact Dave Rudman at email@example.com.
Additional IMPORTANT Security Details:
- After pre-registration for the tours (chosen during the conference registration process, if space still available), you will be contacted by a NIST representative and asked to provide information to be used by NIST Security in performing a background security check. The information requested varies between U.S. citizens and non-citizens.
- On the day of the tour, visitors will be required to pass through a security-screening device (magnometer) before entering NIST facilities.
- Before accessing the NIST site, visitors will also be required (NO EXCEPTIONS) to show valid identifications:
- for U.S. citizens: valid U.S. driver's license
- for international travelers: valid passport (the actual passport, not a copy)
- for non-citizen permanent U.S. residents: valid permanent resident card (not a copy).
