Commonly Asked Questions


Who can attend?

It can be the LIMS administrator or anyone approved by the Admin or Lab Director.  (Basically, anyone who receives approval)  It can also be an IT staff member who wants to learn the system better so they can help support the lab.


How much does it cost?

There are technically 2 separate sessions happening back to back. There is the “Workshop” and the “Users' Group”.

The “Workshop” which is occurring on the Tuesday and Wednesday is $450 per person.The “Users' Group” which occurs the Thursday and Friday is completely free; you just have to get yourself there.


Will Porter Lee pay for the hotel, flight, car rental, etc?

No, Porter Lee does not cover the costs of your transportation, or lodging. We will provide a variety of drinks, snacks and lunch each day of both the Workshop and Users Group.


Where will it be hosted?

This depends on the number of people who attend. If we have 24 or less registrations, it will be hosted at Porter Lee. If we get more than 25 it will be at separate location, which is still being determined. The hotel’s shuttle will still provide transportation to wherever it will be.


I don’t know if I’m available yet. Can I just show up; drop in the day of, if I can make it?

We need a head count prior to the event. Every attendee should be pre-registered. We would like our final head count by Friday, May 27, 2016. We must make sure we have enough room for all the attendees, and enough food. You can register in several different ways.

(However, if you do find you are able to attend at the last minute, please contact us to see if it is possible to accommodate you. Call 847-985-2060.)


 Is there a limit to the number of people we can send?

No, there is no limit to how many people each agency can send, though everyone must be preregistered. Please keep in mind that the Workshop is $450 per person, not per agency.




If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact or call 847-985-2060.
