Co-mingling of public and private events within the TCS Conference Center facilities is prohibited.
Facilities Management and Services – Protection Programs and Systems (FMS-PPS) define a private event as an event for which invitations are issued and/or attendance is restricted (such as a conference, seminar, workshop, or meeting). Attendees including foreign nationals will have access to other laboratory buildings including offices in Building 240 and/or the Argonne Guest House.
Access for foreign nationals must adhere to the guidelines set forth by DOE Order 142.3A. Any foreign national doing business at Argonne National Laboratory, or having access to information, equipment, and/or technology that is not publicly available, must be entered into Argonne’s FAVOR system by the host or designee.

In all cases, hosts are responsible for ensuring that site access requirements are met and for the actions of their visitors.
