Meetings and Events


Our group has been meeting since April 1994. We formed our group as part of The Boston Computer Society (BCS); when the overall BCS organization dissolved itself, we chose to continue on as an independent user group.

Most of our meetings are held on the M.I.T. campus. Here is M.I.T.'s list of User Groups on Campus, including the dates and locations each group has scheduled.
