The [http://www.com.washington.edu University of Washington Department of Communication] is hosting the event and all of our events '''except the Saturday morning lectures''' will be held in the '''Communications building (CMU)''' on the Seattle UW campus. This includes the Friday setup and the and all of the afternoon projects. Although we will be working multiple rooms, we will be based out of '''CMU 104''' so please come here first. We will move into other rooms in the building for the workshop parts of the sessions. You can find the building on [https://maps.google.com/maps?q=CMU+Building&hl=en&ll=47.655675,-122.306435&spn=0.018732,0.016394&sll=47.613028,-122.342064&sspn=0.599907,0.524597&hq=CMU+Building&t=m&z=16 this Google map] or on [http://www.washington.edu/maps/ this campus map from UW].
 
Because we have grown so big, we have to move the lectures into a larger lecture hall than the CMU building has. We will be in '''Savery Hall 260''' ([http://uw.edu/maps/?sav map]) which is a short 5 minute walk from the Communications building where we will have lunch, the afternoon sessions, and the Friday setup. Please meet at '''Savery Hall 260''' on '''the three Saturday mornings at 9:45'''.
