Oh! A few more quick things -

I should mention that parking is going to be challenging if not
impossible to find. There's some discussion on the MIT Facilities
website about parking options
but none of them are very good. I'd recommend taking the T in, if you
can - we're only about a block away from the red line, and the #1 bus
drops off on the other side of campus, which is about a 10 minute walk away.

Also, if you run into any issues finding the room, feel free to give me
a call - my cellphone number is 615-364-4032.
