About the Academy of Medicine:
The Web Audio Conference will be held at Georgia Tech's Academy of Medicine. The Academy, which was fully renovated in 2011, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and boasts beautiful composition and neoclassical architecture. A tribute to the southern reputation of charm and elegance, the facility displays Doric columns, an entry portico, black and white Italian marble floors in a beautiful rotunda accented by the famous Czechoslovakian chandelier seen in the movie "Gone with the Wind." It is a 2-3 block walk from the Academy to the subway station, the main Georgia Tech campus, dining, shopping, and nightlife. The conference hotel is two blocks away.
