LIDS conference rooms, 32-D677 and 32-D707, can be booked by going here: scheduling.mit.edu/idss and using the two tabs to the far right. [You will only see blocked out times without descriptions.]
For other LIDS conference space (e.g., 7th floor LIDS Admin Suite), please contact, please contact your Research Supervisor's LIDS Admin.
If the assigned LIDS Admin is not around and your request is last-minute or urgent, you may see Francisco Jaimes in LIDS 7th Floor Admin Suite or Brian Jones in LIDS headquarters.
What to know once you've booked a room:
- You can get a key to unlock your reserved conference room from your Research Supervisor’s LIDS Admin or from a staff member in LIDS headquarters.
- Please clean the room after each use so that it is ready for the next users, and return all furniture to their original positions.
- Always lock the conference room when you’re done. If you don’t have a way to do so, please let your Research Supervisor’s LIDS Admin know that you’ve left the room unlocked.
- If you have specific technical needs or are unfamiliar with how to use the equipment in a conference room, please see Brian Jones in LIDS headquarters. It's best to make technical arrangements in advance of your booking.
- If your needs change and you no longer require use of the room or need it for a different period of time, please let your Research Supervisor’s LIDS Admin know as soon as possible.
LIDS conference rooms are a resource for the entire community. No one is centrally responsible for re-setting or maintaining them. Please be respectful of the spaces, and others who will be using them after you’re done, by keeping things clean and reserving the rooms only for the times that you need them.
