Eighth International Conference on Atomic and Molecular Data and Their Applications


Washington offers numerous museums, monuments, and art galleries of international stature, and many of these are without admission fees (including America's most often-visited museum, the National Air & Space Museum). Also, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts often offers concerts and operas.

Downtown Washington is conveniently reached via the Metro (subway), and shuttles are often available from NIST or the hotels to the Shady Grove Metro station on the Red Line.
