The agenda will be circulated during the week preceding the meeting.


  • Jul 6, 9am-5pm
  • Jul 7: 9am-5pm


The meeting will be held in the Stata Center at MIT, at 32 Vassar St, Cambridge, MA, across the river from Boston, Massachusetts, USA. The meeting is close to the "Kendall" stop on the MBTA Red Line subway.


The Kendall and Marriott Cambridge are both an easy walk from the meeting site and currently have open rooms. There is an MIT hotels page, but a proximity search on the meeting site address will work as well. Do ask for an MIT rate, which is often about 10% cheaper. Fortunately, despite the July 4th celebration, this is not peak tourist season and hotel rooms are about $200/night.

July 4th

The American Independence Day, July 4th, is a major event in Boston. If you don't mind crowds, you might consider arriving in time for the concert and fireworks. On the evening of July 4th, automobile traffic around MIT and parts of Boston will be horrific; don't plan on driving or using a taxi. The subway system (the MBTA) will be crowded but usable. By the morning of the 5th, everything will be normal again.
