We would be happy to recommend restaurants at any price

We cannot provide on-campus parking for all attendees. If you are coming
from the North or West, you may find it most convenient to drive to Alewife
Station and take the Red Line to Kendall Square (MIT is about 2 blocks from
the Kendall Square Station, which is on Main St.) If you are coming
from the South, you can park at Braintree or Quincy Station and take the Red
Line as well. See this Red Line Map. Parking at these stations is $5.00.
If you are driving to MIT, there are several nearby pay parking lots. See
MIT's page listing public parking facilities. The Cambridge Center lots are all a short walk to the Stata Center. Most lots charge $20.00 for one day parking.
Although the event is free, we ask that you register so that we can
plan space and estimate food costs. We have set up a registration site
The program will consist of an invited talk from
David DeWitt, from the University of Wisconsin, as
well as short (20-30 minute) presentations from you, the participants, along with a poster session!
