For measuring the room see the following free program
Room EQ Wizard - REW Home Page

For your desk start by facing the short wall and sit back around 38% of the room length. You may find that moving forward or back will help the response. At that point you will want to trap as many corners as possible with no less then 4" panels made from mineral wool or rigid fiber glass. Hit the early reflection points with thinner panels (What Are Early Reflection Points. SPOTLIGHT:Bob Ebeling - Revolution Studio) and thick panels and diffusion for the back wall. See the following as a guide for placement.

Dorothy: Now which way do we go?

Scarecrow: Pardon me, this way is a very nice way.
Scarecrow: [points other way] It's pleasant down that way, too.
Scarecrow: [points both ways] Of course, some people do go both ways.
