UniForum Chicago is going to visit Argonne National Laboratory on Tuesday, April 10th from 6:30pm to 9pm. 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 produces the most brilliant X-ray beams in the western hemisphere. This tour should prove to be extremely interesting and informative.
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 vistor center.
There are some special requirements for admission onto the premises:
Additionally, if you are a Non-U.S. citizen, or legal permanent resident (green card holder) you MUST complete and submit THIS FORM no later than March 30th, 2012. There is an approval process that can take seven to ten business days. You will also need to email copies of your INS documents, such as permanent resident card or passport & visa.

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.
