The 28th annual international Astronomical Data Analysis Software & Systems (ADASS) conference took place November 11-15, 2018 in College Park, Maryland, USA. The International Virtual Observatory Alliance (IVOA) meeting preceded ADASS at the same location on November 8-10, 2018. We also hosted a hackathon on November 10-11, 2018. And if you missed this, perhaps see you next year at ADASS 2019 in Groningen, the Netherlands!
Please submit your proceedings presentation by Dec 1. Two full resolution conference participants photos are here and here, and here are some conference photos.
The conference will be held at The Hotel at the University of Maryland, a new hotel & conference center adjacent to the University of Maryland, College Park campus. We have a secured a room reservation block at The Hotel at preferred rates for both the ADASS and IVOA conferences. Attendees are strongly encouraged to stay at the official meeting hotel.

College Park is just a short Metro ride from the myriad attractions of downtown Washington and easily reached from three major airports that serve the Baltimore-Washington, DC area. The Hotel at the University of Maryland is located less than one mile from the College Park Metro station, which is on Metro's Green Line. Complimentary shuttle service is available for The Hotel guests (call +1 301-277-7777 for pick-up), which offers transportation to and from the College Park Metro Station and access to other destinations within a three-mile radius. For getting around locally, consider a bicycle: Zagster BikeShare has partnered with U of MD and The City of College Park to provide bikeshare stations throughout the area. There is a station right outside The Hotel.
