Thank you for registering for NEWSDR 2012! The directions and parking information are below. The preferred method of getting to the conference is via the MBTA and if you have the ability to take either the Orange or the Green line, I recommend it over driving. I have also attached a draft of the schedule for Friday.
Look forward to seeing you then!
