The conference will be held a the unique Stata Center, often considered one of the worst buildlings in the world. It is at the northeastern edge of the MIT campus on Vassar Street near the intersection with Main Street. The building we are in is known as the Stata Center and also MIT Building number 32.
By Public Transportation (commonly called "The T"):
Subway: Take the Red Line to the Kendall/MIT Station (cost is $2.50 with a CharlieTicket and $2.00 with a CharlieCard). When you exit the T, walk Northwest, up Main Street (you will pass the MIT Coop and Legal Seafoods). When you come to the second intersection (Vassar St.), the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab will be in the very unique building to your left.
Bus: The #1 ("Dudley" bus) stops at MIT on Massachusetts Avenu. The MIT stop is at a large crosswalk with a stop light. On one side of the street are steps leading up to large Ionic columns and the Small Dome of MIT, on the other side of the street is the Stratton Student Center (Building W20) and Kresge Oval (an open, grass-covered area). To get to the CSAIL, walk North (so that the steps are on your right) on Mass. Ave. Take a right at the first intersection (Vassar St.). Walk until you see the very unique building on your right at the corner of the next major intersection (Main St.). More detailed public transportation maps and schedules are available from the MBTA.
Street parking in Cambridge is very limited. There are a few metered spots, but these fill up quickly during business hours and most have a strictly enforced two-hour limit. Alternatively, parking is available for a fee in the Tech Square Garage and other fee based parking garages a short distance from the MIT campus.
