Room Assignments

In-person Attendees: We are finalizing and making minor changes to the room assignments. The exact rooms will be posted on this schedule before the workshop starts on Monday. Most of the sessions are in the MIT Stata Building (building #32) room 123. The registration desk will be just outside that room.


Most of the tutorials are already recorded and can be viewed at any time. The tutorials introduce the basic concepts behind STAMP, STPA, and CAST so that newcomers can follow the presentations throughout the workshop.

Note that the tutorials and the workshop are not training classes.
