Where should I stay?

Attendees are responsible for their own hotel accommodations. The symposium venue is the Royal Sonesta Hotel. For additional accommodation listings, please see visiting MIT: where to stay

Where is the nearest airport?

Boston's Logan International Airport is 3 miles from the Sonesta.

What is the best way to travel from the airport to the event?

To get to the Sonesta from the airport, we suggest taking a taxi. The trip will take anywhere from 15-30 minutes, and the fare is roughly $30-35. The taxi fare from Logan is always a bit more than the return, because a surcharge at the airport and a tunnel toll add approximately $5 to the total fare.

Public transportation will get you to the Kendall/MIT stop on the MBTA Red Line and the hotel is a 10 to 20 minute walk from there.

Should I rent a car?

We do not recommend renting a car. The expense on top of poorly marked streets and lack of parking makes having a car more of a nuisance than a convenience.

If I drive, how do I get there and where can I park?

If you are renting a car or will be driving, MapQuest and Google Maps offer excellent mapping services to get you from your doorstep to the Sonesta. Note that on-campus parking at MIT is not available for this event. Parking is available at the Sonesta at the rate of $18/day.

What should I wear?

Appropriate attire is business dress.

What if I have a dietary restriction or allergy?
The Sonesta is prepared with breakfast and lunch options for all dietary restrictions.
