NIST - North Directions

The meeting will be held at NIST North, Building 820, Room 145. The address of
this building is 820 West Diamond Avenue, Gaithersburg, MD.  Note: The building
is located across the street from the main campus of NIST. Instead of turning
onto Bureau Drive toward the main Gate of NIST, turn in the opposite direction
(North) onto Bureau Drive and take the second possible right turn to get to the
NIST North building. The building has the name "NIST" on it in large letters. 
(From Interstate 270, driving North, take Exit 10, which loops under the
freeway, and then turn RIGHT at the first stop light-this is the intersection of
West Diamond Avenue and Bureau drive.)
