General: The review will take place at Jefferson Lab, in room F-113 of CEBAF Center (see  Just come to the main entrance of the building, and sign in with the receptionist.  The cafeteria is adjacent
to the meeting room, allowing a working lunch if desired.

Travel: TJNAF reserved a block of 8 rooms at the residence facility, which is located a very short walk from the main building where the review will take place, and where the cafeteria is located. Information for reserving a room is located at The block of rooms "LQCD Review" is available only until April 13.  (This block may have already been taken by the review committee.) They also reserved a block of 15 rooms at the Days Inn Oyster Point for the nights of May 13 and May 14. The rate is $67.00 plus tax. Cut off for the room block is 4/29/07. The hotel is located at 11829 Fishing Point Drive, less than a mile from the lab. To make reservations, attendees should call 757-873-6700 and reference the "LQCD Workshop at Jefferson Lab".
