There will be a one-day meeting the day prior to the conference [March 28th] in Room 118 of Nieuwland Science Hall on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. The meeting will consist of several 12+3 min presentations with breaks, however attendance will only be open for current students and post-docs. We are exploring the possibility of including a tour of the Nuclear Science Laboratory and/or having an ~hour-long career panel session.
The student/post-doc only day is now full. Any abstract submissions which have not yet been chosen as an oral presentation for the main conference or the student/post-doc only day can still be assigned a poster presentation, though please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to do so!
The present program for the student/post-doc day is here.
Note that the venue for the student/post-doc day is not the same as the venue for the main meeting. The student/post-doc day will take place in room 118 of Nieuwland Science Hall. Unfortunately the University of Notre Dame is a car-free campus, and so the only way to get there is to walk from either the Gillespie Center or from a visitor lot on the south side of campus.
Option 1: Walk from the hotel: The walk from the hotels (Hilton Garden Inn and Inn at St. Mary's) is ~25 min, as you can see from Google Maps. As the image below indicates, the lakes, Basilica, Golden Dome, and Library are good landmarks to help you navigate your way to Nieuwland. Room 118 is on the lower level.
Option 2: Walk from the visitor parking lot south of campus: The large parking lot south of the football stadium is open for parking from outside visitors. The image below shows how to drive onto campus to reach the south lot [red line] and then how to walk to Nieuwland [blue line]. Note that construction is ongoing near the stadium, so your exact route may be slightly different. The walk should take ~10-12min.
