The Hynes Convention Center is fully wheelchair accessible. A limited number of wheelchairs are available free-of charge through the First Aid Station on the first floor (see the Giant Jamboree maps for details), and there are elevators on both ends of the building near the escalators.
Please contact iGEM Headquarters for assistance with other accessibility requests, such as accessibility requirements for presenting during the Jamboree.
Due to the staging setup in presentation rooms, presenters with accessibility needs should contact iGEM HQ (hq AT igem DOT org) by October 18, so we can arrange for a lift to be brought to the presentation room in a timely manner.
The International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of synthetic biology, education and competition, and the development of an open community and collaboration. Visit us at igem.org
