  • Directions: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/labs/redmond/visit.aspx
  • Please use the multi-story parking garage opposite to Building 99 main entrance.
  • If you are not a Microsoft employee and building 99 is locked when you arrive, please wait for a student who is a Microsoft employee to let you in. If you arrive late, call 425-421-5930 (Matt McGinley, who runs our A/V). Or better yet, get the cell phone number of a friend at Microsoft who is also attending the class. Please try to be on-time, since phone calls interrupt the lecture.
