Conference Facilities

Almost all conference activities will take place on the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Marriott Kendall Square, located adjacent to MIT. Here is an interactive map for the campus.

The campus is easily walkable, but if you need some transportation MIT operates a free shuttle that community members can utilize. Please see the MIT Tech Shuttle Bus website for more information on free transportation around campus.

Here is a link to the campus map with pins for the buildings used for events, panels, and plenary sessions.

Note: MIT buildings are both numbered and named. For example, Tang Center (E51) indicates that the building is on the East side of campus. No number indicates Central campus, and a ‘W’ indicates West campus.
