LOCATION

City of Charlottesville, where the 1981 Joint Automatic Control Conference was held on University of Virginia's campus, is located in Central Virginia,
approximately 100 miles southwest of Washington, D.C. (Arlington, Virginia) and 70 miles northwest of Richmond, Virginia. It is situated at the foothills
of the Blue Ridge Mountains and near the Shenandoah National Park, with a local area population 150,000. It is a unique place in the United States that
combines a picturesque and cultivated countryside so rich in historical associations with the proximity of a national park and a wide array of
cultural opportunities, as named by the Money Magazine in 1998 as a top beautiful and livable city in the US, with many attractions including:

Monticello Home of Thomas Jefferson, third U.S. President, author and founder of the University of Virginia. Ash Lawn-Highland, the home of the
fifth U. S. president, James Monroe. University of Virginia, recognized as one of the nation's outstanding universities, as well as a supreme
architectural achievement. Montpelier, celebrating the life and legacy of U.S. President Madison, the Father of the Constitution, and Dolley Madison,
America's first First Lady.

Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway meet at the top of the Rockfish Gap, through Shenandoah National Park. Natural Bridge of Virginia, one of the
seven natural wonders of the world. Underground Wonders of Virginia: Grand Caverns, Caverns of Natural Bridge, Luray Caverns, Endless Caverns, some of
the most popular and beautiful caverns in the US. Tours of museums, battlefields and Jefferson Vineyards near Charlottesville, Buckley Moss
Museum, Hall of Valor Civil War Museum, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Museum and White House of the Confederacy, Berkeley Plantation (the original
Thanksgiving site), and the historic and scenic city of Williamsburg.
