Tuesday night - Welcome Reception
The conference’s Welcome Reception was held on the evening of Tuesday August 7, on an upper terrace of the Frank Gehry-designed Stata Center. The Stata Center, which opened in 2004 and quickly became one of MIT's iconic buildings, is a pleasant two-block walk from the Marriott.

Wednesday night - Tour Boston and Cambridge
Wednesday was a night for attendees to explore Boston/Cambridge on their own. They walked the Freedom Trail, visited a pub in Harvard Square, watched performers at historic Faneuil Hall, and even took a duck tour.
Boston at night
On Thursday, the Conference hosted a dinner cruise on Boston Harbor on board the Spirit of Boston. The cruise was a chance to continue the day's conversations in a pleasant, relaxed environment.
