Balch Lobby
40 Talbot Avenue
Located in the Aidekman Arts Center, Balch Lobby is the site for conference participants to register and pick up their materials. The lobby is also the site for the afternoon coffee break and poster session, as well as the reception following the World Health Day event.

Distler Performance Hall
20 Talbot Avenue
Located in the Perry and Marty Granoff Music Center, Distler Performance Hall, is an acoustically separate “box-within-a-box” that was designed by architects Perkins + Will of Boston to be a showcase for live acoustic performances. The hall is “acoustically sealed”–meaning sounds from without will not interfere with performances, and sounds from within will not interrupt teaching or other functions elsewhere in the building. Even the ventilation and lighting systems have been designed to be silent.

Located in the Perry and Marty Granoff Music Center, Distler Performance Hall, Room 251 is one of the state-of-the-art classroom spaces. Room 251 is also the site of the Afternoon Breakout Session on Disaster Management.

Alumnae Lounge

Center for Scientific Visualization

200 College Avenue
Located on the first floor of Anderson Hall, the Tufts Center for Scientific Visualization, or Viswall, is the site of the afternoon breakout session on Visual Analytics. The Viswall  involves a high-resolution display wall, with far more pixels than conventional computer desktop displays, and far higher than conventional home “High Definition” TV displays. Rear screen projection is used, allowing the viewers to approach the screen for detailed analysis without blocking the projected image. Stereoscopic vision is included, involving special glasses that separate the left-eye image from the right-eye image. An in-room computer provides the signal source for the images, and allows the viewer to “steer” the results during the viewing experience.


Burden Lounge

200 College Avenue
Located on the first floor of Anderson Hall, Room 108, Burden Lounge is the site of the Afternoon Breakout Session on Smart Sensors. Professor Harry Poole Burden joined the faculty of the School of Engineering in 1913 and in 1930 was promoted to professor in the Department of Civil Engineering.
