Here it is! The schedule for GIS Day @Stanford, 2016. It’s a work in progress, but only small changes to times will be made, at this point. 

This year’s events will be split between two venues. In the morning we will meet at the Hartley Conference Center, in Mitchell Earth Sciences Building, and after lunch (on the Mitchell Patio), we will reconvene at The David Rumsey Map Center at Green Library.
