Logistics for Form and Function: New Views on Disease and Therapy for the Heart Workshop

Location and Accomodations: The Bethesda Marriott Hotel at 5151 Pooks Hill Road in Bethesda, Maryland, USA.
The hotel is being sent a master list of participants and will be paid directly by NHLBI. Please call the hotel (301-897-9400 or 1-800-228-9290 in the US and Canada) and mention the event, "Form and Function," to confirm your arrival and departure dates. As the meeting will begin at 8:30 am on Thursday, April 25, you are encouraged to arrive on Wednesday, April 24.

The Marriott Hotel is about 30-40 minutes from National Airport and about 60 minutes from Baltimore-Washington or Dulles International Airports (during non-rush hour). Local taxis will likely know the hotel. You will be re-imbursed for taxi fares or the use of your automobile. Fares of seventy-five dollars ($75) or over will require a receipt.

Meals: Continental breakfast, breaks, and lunch will be provided. Dinner on Thursday will either be arranged in the hotel or you will be reimbursed for dinner on your own. I am also looking into arranging a dinner for Wednesday night so participants can interact informally with each other. I hope you can join us.

Travel Arrangements: For domestic travelers, please make your travel arrangements as early as possible through Omega World Travel (800-723-9403) and mention the "Form and Function" meeting and meeting code 2222 when making reservations. Please contact Omega as soon as possible so tickets can be mailed. Omega can also arrange for tickets to be picked up at the airport (although you may not receive a seat assignment). Domestic flights arranged through Omega Travel will be paid directly by the NHLBI.

For international flights, please arrange your flights as early as possible and use a United States airline, if possible. International flights will be reimbursed after the meeting, following submission of the forms and receipts.

Please carry a copy of your letter (or email) of invitation when you travel. The letter verifies you are traveling on US Government business and are eligible for Government Airfare.

The Meeting: Slide, overhead, and computer projectors will be available. Please contact me if you need special equipment, or for other requests. Staff will be in the room to receive slides or PowerPoint presentations and to help set up. I would appreciate receiving Powerpoint or other computer presentations at least three days prior (April 22) to the meeting.
