Workshops, Challenges, Tutorials

Most workshops, challenges and tutorials will be held on MIT campus, at two different locations: the Student Center (building W20) and the Stata Center (buildings 32 and 36). Posters, coffee breaks and lunches will be provided in an area close to the workshop rooms in each location. If you have questions or difficulties regarding homework, you can always contact the tutors/teachers, or

Some Sunday workshops and challenges will be held at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School (HMS), 77 Avenue Louis Pasteur, Boston, MA. We will provide buses between Kresge Auditorium at MIT and the Martin Conference Center at HMS in the morning (departing at 7:00am and at 7:30am) and in the evening (departing at 5:15pm). Alternatively, you can use public transportation or taxi.

Most workshops are full day; half-day workshops are marked as AM or PM.

In the schedule below, "HMS" indicates that the workshop is held at HMS. The workshop location is provided as Building-Room. The first digit of the room number indicates the floor on which the room is located. For example, "HMS Martin-217" indicates that the workshop is held in the Martin Conference Center at HMS, in room 217 on the second floor. Similarly, "W20-308" indicates that the workshop is held in room 308 on the third floor of building W20 (the Student Center) at MIT. You can see the relevant buildings on MIT campus here.

Important: All registration materials for participants who registered online for workshops held at HMS will be available at the Martin Center on Sunday morning. No on-site registration will be available at HMS. To register on site, you must come by MIT first, before going to HMS. On-site registration will be available starting at 7:00am on Sunday morning, in the lobby of Kresge Auditorium.
