Location Details:
The celebration will take place at the Intel Austin site on Friday November 9th from 8:30 AM -- 12:00 PM. Intel Austin is located at 1300 S MoPac Expy, Austin TX 78746. Follow the signs to the visitor parking lot. Enter from the frontage road (not by going into the campus at the traffic light). If you go into the campus at the traffic light, you will need to leave campus and go back around the frontage roads to get back to the visitor parking. The parking garage is only for overflow visitor parking. Park as far in to the lot as possible.

Do not enter through the main entrance up the steps, but instead follow the sidewalk on the south side of the parking lot to the double glass door. There will be a special check-in desk set up in that lobby to make things easier for our meeting. If you end up in the wrong place, ask for Dounia Khaldi.
