SCMB has funding to partially support participants up to $450 for travel. Priority in allocation will be given to graduate students, postdocs, and junior researchers, including tenure-track faculty, and especially to those presenting posters. If funding allows, we may be able to fund additional participants. To apply for support, check the "I am requesting financial support for Hotel Accommodation" or "I am requesting financial support for Travel" boxes when you register.
We ask that all attendees, including those supported by SCMB, pay the registration fee upon registration. We will notify those who've applied for funding support by December 20th, for the December 15, 2019 registration deadline. Participants that register by the January 15th deadline will be notified by January 20, 2020. Funding decisions for registration after the January 15, 2020 deadline will be based on availability.
Note: If you are funded for hotel accommodation, SCMB will reserve a shared hotel room for Monday, February 17th at the Renaissance Atlanta Midtown Hotel located at 866 West Peachtree Street Northwest, Atlanta, GA 30308.
Poster presenters will have the opportunity to win a small prize, equal to the cost of their registration. If you would like to present a poster, select the relevant box on the Registration section of scmb.gatech.edu/symposium when you register.
Please email poster titles and abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
From the airport
MARTA rail service is the quickest and most affordable way to get from the airport to Midtown Atlanta. From the Airport MARTA station, board any northbound train (Red or Gold line). The ride is just 19 minutes from the airport to the North Avenue MARTA station and 23 minutes from the airport station to Midtown station via either the Red or Gold lines. A one-way fare is $2.50. Trains run approximately every 10 minutes during the day, less frequently at night. If you are arriving into Atlanta late at night, you may prefer to take a taxi cab or Lyft/Uber.
Around Midtown and Georgia Tech
The Georgia Tech Trolley shuttles between the Midtown MARTA station and Georgia Tech's campus, with a stop directly in front of the Marcus Nanotechnology building at Ferst Drive and Atlantic Drive. Tech Trolley has stops at the Midtown MARTA station (on 10th Street near West Peachtree Street, just a couple blocks from the Residence Inn Atlanta Midtown/Georgia Tech Hotel and the Renaissance Atlanta Midtown Hotel) and at Tech Square (5th Street near Spring Street NW). It is free to ride the Trolley.
Registered SCMB Symposium attendees may park in the North Campus/State Street Parking Deck (Visitor 5) on the corner of State Street and 10th Street, immediately north of the Marcus Nanotechnology Building. SCMB will validate your parking in this lot only.
