Room G882 (Hewlett Room) -- southern end of the 8th floor, for those who will carry a compass.

Coffee and juice will provided in the morning, and a box lunch. Additional beverages and food are available for sale in the café on the ground floor of the building and nearby. There will be wireless Internet access.

1.2.1 A few notes about the building

The Stata Center can be a bit confusing as there are two towers: Gates and Dreyfoos. This workshop will be held in the Gates Tower, the entrance to which is on the corner of Vassar and Main Streets.

The building is on an automatic locking system. Doors to the elevator foyers on the 4th floor will be opened for the workshop but the stairwells automatically lock at 5pm (with the only unlocked exit door on the first floor).

Please be careful of your belongings even when stepping away even for a short while. The building is open to the public and there have, unfortunately, been thefts.

1.2.2 How to get to the Stata Center

The MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) is located at the northeastern edge of the MIT campus on Vassar Street near the intersection with Main Street.

Boston Logan International Airport is the closest international airport to MIT. The travel time between the airport and hotels in Cambridge will vary between 30 minutes to one hour depending on traffic conditions. Taxis from the airport are plentiful and fares will range around $30-40.

The Stata Center is located a few blocks away from the MBTA Red line Kendall/MIT stop (directions). We strongly suggest that visitors use public transportation. Alternately, several of the the hotels provide shuttle service to MIT. Information on parking is located below.

1.2.3 Parking

The MIT Parking and Transportation Office does not offer pay lots for visitors. They note: "Because the number of visitor parking spaces on campus is limited, it may not be possible to accommodate every visitor who wishes to park at MIT.... We strongly recommend using public transportation when visiting the MIT campus." There is hourly on-street parking available around the Stata Center though Cambridge is a busy area and parking may be difficult to find, especially in inclement weather.

Information on paid parking lots near campus can be found on MIT's parking site.

1.2.4 Hotels

MIT also has a list of nearby hotels.
