Social events


The social events of this year's ITP will consist of a reception at Prospect House, a canoeing/kayaking outing on the Delaware and Raritan Canal, and a BBQ on the shore of Carnegie Lake.


Reception at Prospect House

On the eve of the conference, a reception will be held at Prospect House (here), a 19th century Italianate Victorian mansion in the heart of Princeton's traditional campus. Weather permitting, the reception will partly be held in the adjacent Prospect Garden, a flower garden originally laid out by the wife of Princeton University's 13th President (and 28th US-President), Woodrow Wilson.

Prospect house is located here on the campus map. The receiption will be open to participants of the conference as well as the associated workshops and involve light food and drinks.

Canoeing/kayaking on the Delaware and Raritan Canal, BBQ

Immediately following the conference presentations on Tuesday, shuttle buses will take us to the Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park (here), dropping us off at the docks of CanoeNJ (here). Here, canoes and kayaks of various sizes will be available (free of charge). Conference attendees wishing to participate in this activity will be required to sign a Release of Liability Form, available from CanoeNJ's web site here and also available on-site. In addition, participants are advised to bring appropriate clothing and shoes.

Attendees preferring not to make use of the boats will enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the history of the park on foot.

Following the exploration of the park will be the Conference BBQ, on the shore of Carnegie Lake. It is intended that boats do not have to be returned to the docks but can be dropped off at the BBQ site.

Transportation back to Nassau Inn and Scully Hall will again be provided by shuttle buses. Alternatively, all locations can easily reached by foot.

In case the weather forecast is significantly better for the first or third day of the conference we may modify the conference schedule on short notice and move the excursion forward/backward. In this case, some presentations may have to be rescheduled. We thus ask the speakers of all afternoon sessions to be prepared for this event. Should the entire week be a washout, the BBQ will be held indoors and complemented by some historical remarks on the developments in logics and computer science in Princeton around 1935.
