General Setup


   No external speakers - you may use laptop or other similarly quiet
   speakers. This is to address numerous extreme noise complaints, allow
   groups to be able to speak to interested individuals, and for performances
   to be heard. ASA Board members may ask you to reduce the volume or turn off
   sound on any speakers if it is causing problems for your neighbors or

   Stay at/by your booth - no handing out flyers at the doorway, no
   blocking the entrance or aisles, etc.

      In order to keep walkways clear for fire safety reasons, groups are
      required to stay within arms’ reach of their table at all points. Do not
      block any entrances or aisles or hand out flyers at the doorway.
      Non-compliance may result in a $50 fine.

      If your booth is not staffed at any point during that 2 hour period,
      your group may be fined up to $25.

      Groups that leave before the conclusion of the Midway without
      permission from the ASA will incur a $75 fine.

   If your group is bringing large items, doing demonstrations, or using
   electricity for anything other than laptops or other displays, make sure
   you review the safety guidelines at <https://ehs.mit.edu/site/cont
   and, if necessary, send a description of your activity to <
   safe-project at mit.edu> so they can suggest tips to improve safety.



   Due to the number of performing groups, each performer has up to 5min
   for their set.

   Any music used for your performance should be non-explicit and
   appropriately censored.

   You must submit your music to us by 10:00am EST on 9/1/17.  Submission
   details will be sent to the relevant groups via email.
