Special features: Conference is
located just across the river from the
National Mall, and just a few blocks
from the Pentagon. The hotel is
connected via underground passage to
the Metro and the Crystal City Shops.
Donated by Virginia to the United States in 1801 and originally part
of Washington, DC, Arlington has served as the headquarters to
many governmental department and agencies.
The land of Arlington completed the “square” of Washington, DC.
(It is labeled as Alexandria County in the animated picture below)
It was retroceded back to Virginia in 1846 because the residents felt
like they had no voice. They were no longer a part of Virginia, and
didn’t feel like a part of Washington. Yet due to its proximity to the
National Mall, today Arlington has the feel of Washington DC.
The Washington, DC/Arlington area features a number of
attractions.
Notable Places:
Arlington National Cemetery
The Pentagon – Headquarters of the
US Department of
Defense
The White House
National Mall (partial list)
National Air and Space Museum
Washington Monument
Lincoln Memorial
Museum of Natural History
Smithsonian Institution Building
Dupont Circle
Georgetown University
Whitehouse
 Hotel is located less than 1 mile from
Reagan International yet does not have
the feel of a hotel right next to an
airport.
 While not in Washington DC, Central, it
is only about 2 miles from the National
Mall, and almost the same exact
distance from the National Mall as the
next closest option.
 The hotel is less than a mile from the
Pentagon and the Pentagon Memorial.
 The hotel has direct access to the metro
line via underground passage.
 The hotel is connected to the Crystal City
Shops via underground passage. The
Crystal City Shops have numerous trendy
shops and a very large variety of food
options for all price levels.

simulate increasingly complex systems becomes possible by a larger and larger
population of Systems Engineers and Operation Researchers. In addition, more and
more data is available to accurately model these complex systems.

 Line up keynotes, Titans, and special features
 Currently in conversation with Dr. John Noseworthy, CEO of Mayo Clinic for a Keynote position.
