    A few posts above I indicated the location for the Mirko and Edita lecture. I said this was the same location as last year but that is not correct. It is, however, right next door, on the cross street. Go by the linked map: http://whereis.mit.edu/?go=NW86 .

    Hi folks, we're looking forward to seeing folks in the morning. Be forewarned that the venue will be cool so bring warm things and warm up before you dance.

    The room will warm up, but we can't make it cool if it starts out hot. Thanks for your understanding!
