Join us at MIT for EAGxBoston 2018 to hear from prominent speakers, participate in workshops, and witness a collaborative, truth-seeking “anti-debate” on activism against nuclear weapons as a cause area. Goals of the conference include stimulating intellectual progress within effective altruism, promoting communication and collaboration between locality- and university-based EA groups, as well as highlighting a wide variety of impactful career paths.

Breakfast and registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. with the first talk starting at 10:00. The conference will end at 6:00 p.m. Breakfast and lunch are included in the ticket price of $25. All food will be vegan.

The conference will be held in MIT’s Tang Center, 70 Memorial Dr, Cambridge, MA 02142. From the Kendall T stop, head east along Main St, then turn right on Wadsworth St. The Tang Center is one block ahead at the SW corner of Wadsworth and Amherst. Parking is extremely limited, so we recommend public transport or ride-sharing.
