Payment of the registration fee must be made via check in advance, or by cash paid the first day of the workshop. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any credit card or purchase order payments. The Registration fee includes:
- All workshop materials including use of a computer with all necessary programs installed.
- Group dinner one evening
- Daily lunches
- Coffee, light breakfast items, and snacks
The registration fee does NOT include hotel or transportation costs. These must be booked separately.

Travel & Lodging
For those arriving by plane, we recommend flying through the Nashville International Airport (BNA). See the Nashville International Airport Ground Transportation page for an extensive list of ground transportation options from the airport.
The Holiday Inn at Vanderbilt on West End has a block of rooms for our workshop participants. Hotel booking information will be provided in the registration confirmation email. A pre-arranged hotel shuttle will bring attendees in a group to and from the workshop each day.
The workshop will be held in the Stevenson Center Teaching Lab, room 5119, part of the Vanderbilt University Campus. The Stevenson Center is an easy ten-minute walk from the Holiday Inn or five minutes from shuttle drop-off points. See the Vanderbilt Campus Maps for the location of the building. (The teaching lab is on the lowest level of the “SC Science & Engineering” building.) Google maps labels the building with “Department of Biomedical Engineering”.
For general GPS/mapping purposes, use the address “1225 Stevenson Center Ln., Nashville”.
