Waze or Google Maps:
In some digital maps, the address points to the facing side of the street, which means you might have to use the address 1172, Av. Prof. Luciano Gualberto instead of 1171.
How to get there by taxi?
The CCSL activities take place at buildings A, B, and C of IME/USP (inside the USP campus, you may ask for directions to the "Matemática" or "IME"). IME faces two different streets and, while both will work, choosing which one is better depends on the building you are looking for. Building C houses the Computer Science professor rooms and our meeting room. It is located at Avenida Professor Luciano Gualberto around number 1100, opposite from the Engineering (POLI) parking lot, as seen on the maps above. Buildings A and B house lecture rooms where CCSL lectures, courses, and other events take place, as well as the software development labs. These buildings are more easily accessible from Rua do Matão, number 1010. If this is your first time coming to IME, we strongly suggest you print out the maps and bring them along. Also, be aware the taxi drivers won't speak English, so you may want to show printed directions.
IME is located in the USP (University of São Paulo) campus at the city of São Paulo, at the West side of the city, in the Butantã district/neighbourhood. The campus sits between the Jaguaré and Cidade Universitária bridges, at Marginal Pinheiros, a.k.a. Avenida das Nações Unidas (a kind of highway - check out the map of the surroundings). Any taxi driver will know where "USP" is, but may not be familiar with the inside of the campus itself.
