General Info

Venue

The conference will be hosted by Boston University, in the George Sherman Union. The GSU is located in the heart of Boston University Campus.  The venue is walking distance from downtown Boston and Central Square in Cambridge, and it can be easily reached via Storrow Drive, I-90, and public transportation. The venue provides access to participants with disabilities and, if needed, additional support is provided by the Boston University Office of Disability Services.

The first floor of the GSU is a lively meeting center for students with several restaurants and shops. The conference rooms are in the second floor.

We are planning to divide Metcalf Hall (12,000 square feet) into two spaces: Metcalf Large (auditorium, 650-700 seats) and Metcalf Small (lunch).

The Ziskind Lounge is a 7,000 square foot space overlooking the Charles River. It will host exhibit and posters. If weather permits, the adjoining patio will be available.
