CHI 2001 will take place in Seattle, Washington, the "Emerald City" of the Pacific Northwest. Seattle is nestled on a narrow strip of land between Puget Sound and
beautiful Lake Washington. To the west are the jagged Olympic mountains and to the east are the volcanic peaks of the Cascade Range with snowcapped Mount Rainier. Seattle has always
offered innovations in music, film, theater, and food and it is the jewel of the Northwest, with many exciting and interesting sites to be explored.
CHI 2001 will be held in the Washington State Convention and Trade Center, an award winning building designed to dramatically integrate the vitality of this international port city with
the natural beauty of the Evergreen State. The Center is located at 800 Convention Place in the heart of the downtown area. The main conference hotel is the Seattle Sheraton located nearby at 1400
The Washington State Convention and Trade Center is twenty minutes from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and just steps away from some of the city's finest hotels and restaurants.
