Each of the talks will have wheelchair-accessible space and armless chairs and/or benches for those that would be uncomfortable in the standard chairs.
Wheelchair-accessible entrance to Steinman Hall can be found on Lower Level 2 (LL2) for front-row seats, and on the 1st floor if you would like to be in the back.

Free access to the conference will be granted to a helper, translator, or other support assistant of a paid attendee. Please contact to make arrangements.

AFK Room
If you need a break from the crowds and excitement, head on up to the Shire (2nd floor Classrooms across from the Library) and enjoy our all-day Lord of the Rings extravaganza. And if you need something a little quieter, head to the Info desk or find any CPOSC Staff member and we will find you a private place until you are ready to rejoin the fun.
