Local information

The conference will take place in Building 2 at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It is a 5–10 minute walk from the MBTA Red Line subway station `Kendall/MIT'. Click here for more information on getting to Building 2.

The talks are in the room 2-190. Some or all building entrance doors on MIT campus will be locked. We suggest the participants enter through the door next to the lecture room in the Building 2 courtyard. We originally asked for this door to remain unlocked during the conference, but due to the protests at MIT all the doors will be locked on Friday and the situation is unclear for Saturday and Sunday. Please see the map below:

There are many hotels in the Kendall Square and Central Square neighborhoods of Cambridge, MA, which are within walking distance of the conference building. There are more affordable options in neighborhoods further down the Red Line, such as Porter Square and Davis Square.

Caution: we do not work with any third party companies to provide accommodations for the conference! The speakers have already been contacted regarding accommodations, the participants are generally expected to book their own accommodations. If you receive an email from someone other than us about `facilitating accommodation arrangements', it is a scam.

Note: for reasons related to various MIT policies regarding minors, you have to be at least 18 years old to attend the conference and at least 21 years old to attend the conference dinner. The conference organizers reserve the right to ask participants for identification to confirm their age.
