The Device APIs Working Group will meet in Burlington, MA (near Boston) on July 10 to July 12, hosted by Nokia.

Agenda

Meeting Venue

Nokia, 5 Wayside Road, Burlington MA 01803

The meeting room is on the first floor behind the reception desk, in the "Executive Briefing Center".

Internet access will be available.

All Visitors are required to check in at the front desk. No NDA will be required, but a picture Id is required. Access is limited to the conference room and cafeteria.

Local Airport

Logan Airport is the largest nearby international airport (BOS). The Nokia office is about 18 miles north-west of the airport.

Driving Information

Directions to drive from airport

Leave airport, Ted Williams Tunnel to 93 North, Exit 37B for I95/128 South, then Exit 33A for Cambridge St (go under bridge, turn right at second light to Wayside road, 1st Left into Nokia driveway, bear right and then straight, turn left and enter parking lot).

See also hotel directions below.

There is ample free parking in the lots surrounding 5 Wayside. Please observe signs designating Handicap, Visitor and Expectant Mother, however there is no requirement to park in visitor parking.

Local Transport

Alternate transportation noted on Marriott hotel page: Town Car Shuttle to Marriott in Burlington; fee: 64 USD (one way) ;reservation required

Taxis are available at the airport, outside each terminal. Estimated taxi fare: 68.00- 80 USD (one way)

Logan Express (Woburn line) takes you from the airport to Woburn for 12 USD (one way). You can then take a taxi to Burlington for 20-30 USD. (Taxi availability at the station varies throughout the day. It's best to let the bus driver know you would need a taxi. He/she can call ahead for one for you.)

There is an MBTA bus stop at the bottom of Wayside Road, where it intersects with Cambridge Street. The # 350 bus will bring you to Alewife Station on the MBTA Red Line. (I would expect this would make a long and unreliable journey from the airport; a cab, shuttle or rental car is probably preferable.)

Hotels

The following are some hotels near the meeting location.

Boston Marriott Burlington One Burlington Mall Road · Burlington, Massachusetts 01803 USA. This is a short 15-20 minute walk from the Nokia office (alternate walk route)

The Hilton Garden Inn 5 Wheeler Road Burlington, MA 01803. This is a short 15 minute drive from the Nokia office.

The Hyatt House Boston/Burlington 2 Van De Graaff Drive Burlington, MA 01803 This is a few blocks away in walking distance from the Nokia office.

Check with your hotel about their shuttle services. We've seen many of them stop by the Nokia office.

Meals

Attendees are responsible for their own breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is a cafeteria at the facility as well as restaurants nearby.
