5/8/18 AM Pre-arrival update:

  • Check in at the Westshore Grand is 3 pm and check out is 12 pm.
  • The hotel provides complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport.  The shuttle departs from the hotel every 30 minutes to the airport.  Please call 813-286-4400 once you have collected your luggage and they will instruct you to the nearest pick-up location at the airport. The airport is only 10 minutes from the hotel.
  • You will need to bring a laptop or any device that connects to the internet and has Adobe Reader (recommend a laptop or MacBook). All course materials will be online and in color. Lectures cannot be copied, saved or printed. You can only access the course materials on two devices so if you log on to one device at the meeting please note that you will only  have one more device to use to access the lectures (this includes web browsers used). You can take notes on the actual website; the lectures are stored which will then be saved for future use or feel free to use the pens and paper we will provide. We do not recommend you use the browser Safari. Some users had trouble with that browser last year.

  • Please try to arrive a few minutes early on Thursday morning so you can hear opening announcements (7:45 a.m.) and to make sure your microscope is functioning properly.
