Visitor info, Agenda  (updated 9/19)

Specifically: if you click on "APL Main Campus" under "Campus Maps", you will find a map of the main campus of APL.  Our meeting will be held at the very bottom of this map at "South Campus", Building 200, south of Johns Hopkins Road.  The entrance faces south, away from the road, and there is plenty of parking in that region as well.

                Directions from Airports is provide under "Map and Directions"

                Lodging suggestions can be found under "Lodging" 

FOREIGN NATIONALS (This does not include Green Card Holders; see below):

Our meeting will be outside of APL?s security perimeter, but none-the-less Foreign Nationals must register for the meeting.  We will need the following information from each foreign national more than 7 working days before your arrival to the meeting.  PLEASE SEND THIS INFORMATION TO BOTH BARRY MAUK AT AND TO OFFICE ADMINISTRATOR, KIM MORGAN AT  ALSO, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU BRING SOLID, VALID INDENTIFICATION (PASSPORT PREFERRED; VISAS OR WORK PERMITS MAY ALSO SUFFICE).  BRING THE ACTUAL IDENTIFICAION,  NOT JUST A COPY. Information that we need is:

                                0) Citizenship

                                1) Full Name

                                2) The Institution that you are representing

                                3) Full Contact Information

                                4) Date of Birth

                                5) Whether or not you will bring a laptop (if you do we will assume that you will be connecting to our Guest Network that give access to the internet)


If you have a valid green card that you bring with you and have on your person, no action is required for you.  If you do not bring your valid green card and have it with you, you will be treated as if you are a Foreign National. And, on the day of the meeting, because it will be too late to register you as a Foreign National, you will not be allowed into the meeting.  AND SO, IF YOU ARE NOT SURE THAT YOU WILL HAVE A VALID GREEN CARD WITH YOU, THEN PLEASE PROVIDE THE INFORMATION ABOVE AS IF YOU ARE A FOREIGN NATION.
