Venue

The IPIC 2016 conference will be held at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center (GLC) in Atlanta, GA USA. The GLC is located in Technology Square in the revitalized midtown Atlanta neighborhood. This vibrant, live-work-play environment was initially transformed by the renovated Biltmore and Sixth District Federal Reserve Bank, which complement nearby Atlanta landmarks like the Fabulous Fox Theatre and the corporate headquarters of Coca-Cola, AT&T, and Bank of America. Residential developments, restaurants and retail make the area a distinct community. Technology Square serves as the area's high-tech core while establishing a primary artery between the Georgia Tech campus and midtown across an enhanced 5th Street bridge.
