Room Change for Information Systems lecture

Information Systems lecture with Cindy Liu on a Wednesday evening has been moved from G28 to KE 4-008. This is the large lecture theatre on the 4th floor in the main building. The reason it has changed is that students felt that G28 was too cramped for the size of the cohort.
