Travel Reimbursement Documentation: A form was mailed to those who RSVPed to begin the reimbursement process. As a reminder, the NSF grant will reimburse airfare (or if driving to Atlanta, ground transportation) for up to two participants from each institution unless other arrangements have been made. The hotel will be direct billed, so information for your room will not be needed on this form. We will ONLY provide reimbursement for the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center. Please, bring all receipts for reimbursement with you to the consortium meeting to provide to Keyonia Holland. Receipts and other supporting documentation can be printed at the GTHCC business center if needed. Please, send the attached form back to Keyonia Holland by Friday May 13, 2022 or, if possible, before the start of the VIP consortium.

Travel from Airport to Hotel: The transportation to and within GT page has instructions on how to get to and around campus (MARTA and the GT trolley).

Parking: Parking directions to the Global Learning Center can be found here

Internet Access: Georgia Tech uses EduRoam services. If your institution does not use EduRoam, the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center provides complimentary Wi-Fi that extends to the Georgia Global Learning Center (although there are sometimes slight interruptions in services).

Social Media: If you plan to participate in the virtual community for the conference (either before you arrive or while you are with us), use and follow #VIPConsortium on your chosen platform.  Representatives from GT will be posting with that hashtag throughout the meeting.
