MKI has three conference rooms for the MKI community to reserve for meetings and one visitor's office for short-term visitors.  We plan to embed a Google calendar on this page in November 2015 so you can check conference room availability.  For questions or to reserve these conference rooms, contact Debbie (secondary contact Thea).  Please note: some standing events (brown bag lunch talks, astrophysics colloquia, journal club) are scheduled year round as placeholders.  If you have a question about a particular date, please contact Debbie.
