6.  Transportation: The following link provides important information on arriving to Endicott. http://www.mitendicotthouse.org/directions.htm.

   Endicott is not within walking distance from any shops, etc. For going to Boston or to the closest town (Dedham) it might be useful to rent a car. 

   If you plan to take a taxi from the airport, it is a good idea to have directions to Endicott House with you, which can be found clicking the above link.

   If you are interested in reserving transportation, Endicott recommends A&A Metro (http://www.aametro.com; (800) 437-3844). They can 

   provide car service from the airport upon arrival and to the airport when the conference is completed.

7.   The turnout for the event has been very strong. There is not enough accommodation space at Endicott for all the participants, and a few participants will stay at a nearby hotel, Sheraton Needham, which will provide a shuttle to and from Endicott, including for breakfast and after dinner. You will receive an  email if this applies to you.
