Attendee Resources

We will offer a Parent/Infant Room and during the meeting. For convenience and privacy, IEEE has designated a room for parents for nursing, feeding, and changing infants. The room will be unsupervised and IEEE is not responsible for accidents or injuries that may occur in this room or any items left unattended.

Parent/Infant Room location:  Bucktown (Level 3)


Two private rooms will be available on Level 3 near the conference venue for use for lactation, or other personal reasons. 

Please contact [email protected] or see the staff at the Registration booth for further information.



There will be no conference-sponsored childcare services on-site at the 2019 PVSC. However, children under 5 may attend social events without needing to register for the companion’s program, and childcare providers can access the conference venue to meet conference attendees, etc.

While PVSC is not providing any onsite childcare services, we are compiling a contact list of attendees who are looking to coordinate private childcare options.  Please email [email protected] if you are interested in joining this list.

The conference does not assume responsibility or liability for child care services of any sort. It is the responsibility of the parents to thoroughly investigate all childcare providers.

Chicago Super Sitters is a child care company specializing in on-site childcare for events in Chicago. Please contact them directly if you are looking for childcare in Chicago.
