Q: Am I locked in to the transportation option that I chose for Sunday afternoon?

If you wish to change your travel time, please email Suzi Clark at scclark@mit.edu. Once you’ve received your travel itinerary, we can’t guarantee that we can accommodate changes.

Q: What should the size of my poster be and what should the aspect ratio of my presentation be?
