There will be a dinner (at a personal cost of $60) on Thursday, December 5 at Atlantis Marine World/Long Island Aquarium & Exhibition Center in Riverhead.
For those who indicated on their Registration Form that they would be attending the dinner, please note that the organizers must collect this cost from you (in cash) during the first day of the workshop.
It would be very helpful if you had the exact amount available, as it will be difficult to provide change. Upon payment, you will be provided with a receipt and directions to the event.
There is no evening dinner service available on-site.
Vending machines (including sandwiches, salads, beverages, coffee, ice cream, and microwaveable foods, as well as a selection of toiletries) are located in the Post Office (www.bnl.gov/maps/point.php?Lat=40.86776&Lng=-72.88106) (Building 179) and the Research Support Building (www.bnl.gov/guv/map.asp) (Building 400) and are available 24-hours 7 days per week. A small eating area and microwave oven are also provided at these locations.
Detailed information about the Cafeteria, Vending Machines and other on-site services can be found in the online Guide to Brookhaven National Laboratory (www.bnl.gov/staffservices/foodservices.php).
Three computer terminals are located in Berkner Hall (Bldg. 488) for internet access or accessing your email. You may also use the local network jacks to connect your own laptop as well.
If attendees bring laptops, tablets, smartphones, etc. that will require internet access during the workshop, then these devices must be registered in BNL's Network Access Registration database in order to access the internet.
Registering your computer device can be done via the device's web browser upon first connecting to BNL's network; however, the registration process will require a BNL life or guest number.
If you do not have a BNL-assigned life or guest number, a specially generated conference key will be provided to you on the first day of the workshop. This conference key is only valid during the actual days of the workshop. Please use this conference key in place of the BNL-assigned life or guest number.
Note: Only computers running Windows 7 and higher will be able to get internet access. Attendees will only have 15 minutes to complete their computer registration. Computers will be blocked if registration is not complete in time. Please make sure you understand the process before starting or ask for assistance.
Fax machines are located in Berkner Hall (Bldg. 488) for those who require faxing services. The phone number for Berkner Hall's fax machine is 631-344-5568.
Please always dress accordingly. If there is very inclement weather and you think there is a possibility of BNL either having a delayed opening or being closed for the day, you may call extension x4636 (INFO) from an on-site BNL telephone.
If calling from an off-site telephone or from a cell phone, please call 1-631-344-4636 (INFO).
