The Think Tank activities will take place at Ford Building (circled in blue) on the University Park Campus of Penn State University in State College, Pennsylvania. I have marked 4 hotels within walking distance of Ford Building (please click on the image to expand). The most convenient is the Nittany Lion Inn, which is located at the corner of West Park Avenue and North Atherton Street. The Quality Inn, the Sleep Inn, and the Comfort Suites are also a 10-15 minute walk away.
We also have created a Housing Bulletin Board to provide assistance for attendees as they make housing arrangements. You will be sent the link to the bulletin board in a separate email, as it is private to the people participating in the Think Tank. Please email me (David McNaughton) at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Parking will be available at the Nittany Parking Deck (red rectangle in map below). This is across the street from the Ford Building. The charge is $1 per hour.
