With the meeting scheduled to start at 10:30am Thursday morning, it is possible to take advantage of some of the more interesting Philadelphia historical sites and landmarks on your own, independent of the meeting. There are a number of interesting walking tours that start from the hotel. You can do these tours by yourself or you can organize a group (either in advance of the meeting or Thursday morning at breakfast) to walk it together. More information on organizing your own walking tours is included on the local information page.

We were able to arrange brief tours Thursday morning to GRASP Labs at the University of Pennsylvania and the Center of Networked Computing Lab at Temple University. These are optional tours of 30 to 45 minutes. If you would like to participate in one of these, please indicate your preference below. For more information, see the local information page.

Please indicate your interest below (you may select one or both):

Thursday Morning Tour:
Tour of GRASP Labs at U Penn

If you are spending extra time in Philadelphia, a local tour company, Awfully Nice Tours, offers a variety of options. They will also work with you to plan custom tours if you have six or more people. For more information, see the local information page.
