This workshop will be held in close conjunction with the NADDRG Spring Meeting here at NIST May 22nd.
This workshop has several goals:
The output of the workshop will be a report authored primarily by our industrial stakeholders detailing what they feel is most important for NIST / NCAL to be working on to support the goal of manufacturing lighter, more fuel efficient vehicles. This report will be used to guide the expansion of this program with new internal and consortium funds.

General travel guidance can be found HERE. Several hotels are located close by (Hilton, Holiday Inn, Comfort Inn, etc), and cabs are available from the closest Metro stop (Shady Grove on the Red Line). Flying into BWI and Dulles are equally easy, but for those who wish to avoid renting a car, National is best.
US Citizens need to provide full name as it appears on an official ID such as a driver's license. Foreign guests require a bit more processing and will be contacted for needed information well before the meeting.
