Spaces in David Rittenhouse Labs, Penn
David Rittenhouse Labs, First Floor (View Map)
We hope to use the large auditorium A1 as the primary meeting room for plenary sessions. It has projection capability and is connected to Demo space IC6. The seating is stadium seating with pull-up tablet arms, and can accommodate about 200 people. Click for more information about the room.
The hallway outside A1 (View Hallway) is a public space but is useable for coffee and vendor literature on tables. We must specify tables for this hallway if we want them.
The smaller but similar auditorium A2 seats 94.
David Rittenhouse Labs, Second Floor (View Map)
There are three advanced lab rooms we can use on this floor: 2N44, 2N23, and 2N25. All are full of equipment and are likely to be used for workshops by presenters from Penn.
David Rittenhouse Labs, Third Floor (View Map)
There are four lab rooms on the third floor: 3W5, 3W7, 3W10, 3W11. They are all similar in size and setup; each can likely accommodate 5 simultaneous workshops without being uncomfortably crowded (View Photo).
There are five classrooms near the third-floor lab rooms that can be used for breakout sessions or discussions: 3W2, 3C2, 3C4, 3C6, 3C8. These classrooms are all similar in size (View Photo). They each have a projector system with a Windows computer, DVD player, and wireless access. They are heavily utilized during the summer, but we may be able to reserve them.
Other space possibly available at David Rittenhouse Labs
4th Floor Room - New Room w/ Breaker IP4E, 14'x28' (no photo; room freshly renovated) suitable for 2 workshops
The "Undergrad Lounge" (View Photo) could serve as space for 1 workshop. (Power is also available from the ceiling.)
There are two computer labs (PC Lab 1 & 2) in the basement of DRL with a separate building entrance. We can probably only plan on having one of them, but can ask for both.
Possible space in other Penn buildings
The Engineering Department is the most likely to have "physics-like" lab space, if more is needed. Electronics Lab is taught in the Engineering Building.
Vagelos Lab (Chemistry) requires card access (a student might be hired to staff the door), and is probably too disconnected from the other spaces we will be using.
Space in Disque Hall, Drexel
Possible spaces for workshops
Additional spaces at Drexel for Breakout Discussion Sessions
Other possible space at Drexel
At the Bennett S. Lebow Engineering Center, there is Engineering E Lab Room 132 ("E4 Testing & Design Lab"), which has quite a bit of Agilent equipment, not in use at this time of year.
Note: At Drexel we can store shipped equipment in the Disque Room 103 closet and in Joe Trout's office.
