Location[edit]

MIT is hosting this event.

The workshop is in the Stata Center on MIT's main campus, at 32 Vassar Street. The Stata Center is also called building 32.

We are in room 32-082 in the Stata Center. That's MIT-speak for "building 32, room 082 in the basement". See this map of campus for where building 32 is. The Stata Center is an unmistakably distinctive building:
