The headquarters hotel is the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel, 202 East Pratt Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21202 USA. This hotel is the symposium venue.


The regular room rate will be the prevailing federal government per diem rate. It will be finalized when the FY 18 rates are announced, probably by fall 2017. For planning purposes, the current per diem rate is $156 per night plus tax (currently 15.5%).


Room block reservations will be available in Fall 2017.


Attendees are encouraged to stay at the Renaissance for its convenience. The symposium is obligated to use a certain number of sleeping rooms or face penalties.
