UniForum Chicago is proud to announce a special event for the April 10th, 2012 SIG meeting. It is a tour of Argonne National Labs (south of Darien, IL and I-55).
We will be using this Meetup.Com page as our primary method to collect a list of attendees for the tour. Argonne needs a list of all tour attendees and citizenship. If there is a reason that you can't add yourself as member to this Meetup Group and RSVP for the event, please use the Contact Us link to send us an email or call.
Be sure to provide your country of citizenship in the answer to the question we are asking as part of the RSVP. You MUST RSVP before by April 9th to participate on the tour. Additionally, non-US citizens have additional special requirements that must be submitted to ANL by March 30th (see the link below for detailed information).
We'll all meet at the Argonne Information/Visitor Center at 6:30pm, which is located off Northgate Road. From I-55, take exit 273A south on Cass Avenue 0.7 mi to Northgate Road (main entrance). Turn right and continue 0.7 miles to the Guard Gate and the visitor center.
Please be sure to read additional information and admission requirements regarding the tour on our meeting page at:
We hope to see you there!
UniForum Chicago is going to visit Argonne National Laboratory on Tuesday, April 10th from 6:30pm to 9pm. Please note this is 1/2 hour earlier than our usual meeting time.
The tour will include the Leadership Computing Facility, Advanced Photon Source, and the Nuclear Engineering Exhibit. The leadership computing facility contains the massively parallel Blue Gene supercomputer. The Advanced Photo Source (APS) produces the most brilliant X-ray beams in the western hemisphere. APS is generally considered by visitors to be the most interesting part of the tour. Our tour should prove to be extremely interesting and informative.
Once we have finished the tour, we will adjourn to Gordon Biersch (I-355 & Boughton Rd near Bass Pro in Bolingbrook) for food and drinks for our usual After-the-Meeting meeting.
