PAPIs 2018 has ended

Please bring a government issued, photo ID with you. You will not be allowed in the building without the proper ID.

When should I arrive?
Doors open at 8.15am. Talks start at 9am but we strongly recommend to arrive in advance in order to have time to go through security, get your PAPIs badge, choose your favorite t-shirt (we have some really cool and exclusive designs, but limited sizes), meet fellow attendees, exhibitors, and find a good seat in the auditorium. That's quite a TODO list :)

Coming to the training workshops (10/15)
The workshops won't be taking place at the same venue as the conference (TBA).

Coming to the conference (10/16-17)
The building is on 1 Memorial Drive, Cambridge (MA) — which is actually on the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It looks over the Charles River and the city of Boston. The conference is on the 1st floor of the building. Get directions.
If coming by car, you'll be responsible for your own parking. There is some parking in the building at One Memorial Drive, and there are additional garages and lots in the Kendal Square area. Try searching for "parking near Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA" on Bing Maps or Google Maps. The closest lot appears to be Pilgrim Parking at 350 Kendall St, Cambridge, MA 02142.

Accommodation
Please refer to MIT's Where To Stay page (see "Preferred hotels" and "Other resources"). Airbnb can offer interesting alternatives.

Food and drinks
We’ll have breakfast snacks, fruit, tea, coffee and refreshments at the conference.
Lunch won't be provided. You'll have a 1.5 hour break to grab lunch with fellow attendees at the Microsoft cafeteria, next door at the MIT Sloan School cafeteria, or near Kendall Square.
There will be drinks after the conference (~6pm) on October 16.

Wifi
TBA closer to the event.
