NIF Tour Registration

All attendees and guests Deadline: May 10, 2011

A tour of the National Ignition Facility (NIF) at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) will be part of the program on the afternoon of June 23. Multiple buses will depart San Francisco between 12:50 p.m. and 1:50 p.m. for LLNL. The buses will take conference attendees to the LLNL badge office and then to NIF for a walking tour.

The NIF tour is limited to conference attendees (US citizens and non-citizens) and their guests (companions and spouses). At this time attendees under the age of 18 are not permitted. Participation on the tour will be subject to badging approval. Please note you must bring the proper identification to be admitted on the tour.

The NIF site has several clothing requirements that have been implemented to protect individuals and personnel around them.

Such requirements include long pants that cover the ankle and shirts with sleeves. Short sleeve shirts are acceptable. Sleeveless shirts, tank tops, shorts, capri or cropped pants, skirts, or dresses are not acceptable. Sturdy shoes that enclose the entire foot must be worn. Tennis shoes and loafers are acceptable. Footwear with open toes, open backs, moccasins, sandals, or high heels are not acceptable.

Immediately following the NIF tour, buses will transport participants to the conference banquet in the Livermore Valley. Those not attending the NIF tour may take a later bus (~4:00 p.m.) that will go directly to the banquet. Following the banquet, all buses will return to the Westin Hotel in San Francisco.
