Updated 15 October 2003 (NOTE: The website program and times are still subject to some tweaking. The final program and times will be made available on site on October 17 upon registration.)

Look at our home-made OSAPS map to find parking spots (we will use a stamping procedure to validate your parking ticket), and to find the buildings for registration and the beginning of the program each day (Allen Memorial Medical Library on Friday, and Rockefeller Building on Saturday). You also could just follow the instructions on the CWRU campusmap.
