September Report

We’re hard at work preparing for next summer’s DH 2024! At the end of last month, we did a tour of some of the spaces that we’ll be using on our Arlington campus and wanted to give you all a sneak peek as well.

Our classroom spaces are all fully set up with the technology necessary to support hybrid sessions and have sections of physically accessible seating that can accommodate wheelchairs and scooters.

There is plenty of hangout space for coffee/tea breaks, including open spaces for large groups as well as smaller areas (with a variety of seating types) for quieter socializing. For those of us who are still taking precautious against infectious disease, we have a great outdoor space in the adjacent plaza, which has also been reserved for the conference.

And last, but certainly not least, we will have some special-purpose spaces set up and participants will be able to take advantage of existing purposed spaces such as the nursing mother’s room on the 3rd floor of the conference venue.
