ID Requirements for Attendees

U.S. citizens must have some form of government-issued photo identification such as a driver's license, Non-citizens must have documentation showing legal status (Green Card, Passport, Visa, I94, etc).

Badges will be handed out at the Comfort Inn prior to loading buses Tuesday morning. You will be required to show your identification to an ORNL employee at that time. Once buses are loaded we will proceed to the ORNL entrance station on Bethel Valley Road. The Protective Force staff will then check with the ORNL employee on each bus to ensure that all visitor information has been verified. Buses will then proceed to the workshop location on the ORNL campus.

If you have any questions regarding this process please contact Jeanne Phillips at 865-576-0382 or via e-mail at

Coach buses will provide transportation from the Comfort Inn — the conference hotel — to the ORNL campus each morning, and return to the hotel each evening. Transportation will also be provided to and from dinner at the Flatwater Event Center on March 3, and to the Knoxville airport on March 4. Buses will depart from the Comfort Inn for the airport at approximately 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm on March 4.

Information on ground transportation options from the airport to Oak Ridge, including taxis, car service, and car rentals, is available on the McGhee Tyson Airport website.
