MACSIM 7 will take place at Georgetown University on October 7th, 2017.

Keynote speaker:  Satoshi Tomioka, University of Delaware.

Important Announcements:

  • Student presentations (both talks and posters) are nominated by their department faculty.  Nominations are due August 26.
  • Abstracts are due by September 9, 2017.
  • As in previous years, we will be able to provide some travel support for presenting students.  Details on the precise amount of funding available is forthcoming

Travel Information

Georgetown’s main gate is located at 3700 O Street, Washington, DC 20057.

By car

General driving directions to campus can be found here.

Parking on the streets around campus is sparse, and is mostly limited to 2-hour (strictly enforced) periods. Meanwhile, on-campus visitor parking is expensive ($22.00 per day — more information here). Hence, if you are driving to DC from out of town, you may wish to leave your car at your hotel or wherever you are staying and travel to campus from there by alternative means.

By MetroRail and/or MetroBus

While no MetroRail lines stop at Georgetown directly, several buses stop at or near Georgetown, and connect to and from various MetroRail lines as well as other points throughout the city.

The G2 bus stops at the main gate of the university (3700 O Street), and connects to the Dupont Circle MetroRail station and the Logan Circle area via P Street.  G2 Map and Timetable

The D6 bus stops at the north side of campus, on Reservoir Road, and connects to the Dupont Circle, Farragut North, Metro Center, and Farragut West MetroRail stations.  D6 Map and Timetable

The D2 bus stops near the north side of campus, at 35th and Reservoir Road, and connects to the Dupont Circle MetroRail station and up to the Glover Park area.  D2 Map and Timetable

The 38B bus stops at M St. and 34th, and connects to the Rosslyn, Foggy Bottom, Farragut North, and Farragut West MetroRail stations.  38B Map and Timetable

The DC Circulator is another public bus that stops at M St. and 34th, and connects to the Dupont Circle and Rosslyn MetroRail stations.  Circulator Map and Timetable

By Amtrak

Once you have arrived at Union Station, MetroRail/MetroBus will take you the rest of the way. The D6 bus goes from Union Station to the north side of campus. Alternatively, MetroRail can take you from Union Station to Dupont Circle, where you can catch several buses to campus (see above).
