Lodging: CORM has reserved a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn, Gaithersburg. Click here to make reservations online, or call 301-948-8900 and mention "CORM 2018" or the block code "C18" to receive the room rate. The block of rooms will be held until June 29th.

Please Note: The registration deadline is July 22, 2018. This is a firm deadline because the conference is being held at a federal facility (the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology) and we need to provide NIST with a list of registrants, their organizations and citizenship status by this time. On-site registration will not be available.

Foreign National Registrants: Those planning to attend the CORM Conference who are not citizens of the United States should also register with NIST at the following link, by July 22, 2018: https://appam.certain.com/profile/42124 Please note that this is a seperate registration from the conference registration, required because the conference is being held at a U.S. federal government facility.

Please contact the conference coordinators with any questions about the event.
