Friday, Nov 9

Friday's sessions will be held in Room 3206 of the Mathematics Building. (It's a domed building with the name "Glenn Martin Institute of Technology." Do not confuse it with the "Glenn Martin Hall," which is right next door.)

Parking on campus is aggressively enforced. There are two options (see the map below).

  • Any of the visitor lots on campus. The closest to the Math building are the Regents Drive Garage and the Paint Branch Visitor Lot. Both offer parking for $3.00 per hour and $15.00 maximum per day. Payment is made in advance at any of the automated pay stations. Payment can be made by cash or credit card. (Remember your spot number. There is no need to display the receipt on your dashboard.)
  • We have a limited number of hanging permits for Student Lot 11b. You can obtain a permit at the registration desk and take it to your car. (It's a 5-10 minute walk from the Math building. There is a small lot, E*1, behind the Math building. If you are quick, you can park there illegally, dash inside, and grab a permit.) Permits are limited, but we will try to accommodate all requests. Please note your parking intent on your registration form, or send me email (

If you are staying at one of the closer hotels (e.g., Clarion Inn or Comfort Inn and Suites), and the weather is good, walking is a good option. You can walk down Baltimore Avenue to the main entrance on Campus Drive.

A more pleasant option is to take the Paint Branch Trail. Follow Metzerott Road (next to Rita's Ice Cream), and proceed downhill across a 1-lane bridge. The trail lies just beyond the bridge. Take the path to the left, and after about 10 minutes you will come to the A.V. Williams building. Just ahead is Campus Drive, the main road entering campus. Follow Campus Drive to the right, which will bring you in front of the Math building.

Saturday, Nov 10

Saturday's sessions will be held in Room 1115 of the Computer Science Instructional Center (CSIC). This building is connected by a bridge to the A.V. Williams Building, where the Dept. of Computer Science is located (see the map below).

  • The closest lots to the CSIC Building are the XX Surface Lots (XX1, …, XX5). Parking in these lots is free on the weekend.
  • Parking enforcement is more relaxed on Saturday, but some areas are monitored. Visitor lots are enforced at a lower rate (a maximum of $5.00 per day). Parking spots reserved for the disabled and for service vehicles are enforced at all times. To be safe, check the sign on entry to the lot.
