In general, the doors to CITI will be open between 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM. Fruits, Coffee, Pop, Donuts/Bagels will be provided each morning. Lunch and Dinner are not provided, and will be ad-hoc (no scheduled time!)


Each table will have one 10/100/1000 megabit (1G) switch. We also have 10/100 hubs available for network monitoring. Please bring your own cable, 3-6 ft (1-2 m). IP addresses will be real (no NAT) but will be behind a firewall that lets connections out but not in.

There will be both static and dhcp addresses available. Names will be in the domain. If you need static addresses or have special requirements for the firewall, please let us know ahead of time. CITI's wireless network is also available for generic laptop use, but is not behind the firewall. (The WEP key is posted inside CITI.)
