Registration & Hotel Booking
ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. On site registration opens on Sunday, Sept 11th.
Before registering we suggest you read the program overview to understand the options you have, including the pre-conference workshops.
We encourage you to stay at the conference hotel, the Sheraton Denver Downtown. Not only is this a very nice hotel at which we've negotiated good rates, but it's where all the conference sessions will be and it will be the natural social hub of the conference. The hotel contains three bars, Katie Mullen's Irish Pub, 16Mix, and 15Fifty, a Peet's coffee shop, and the Yard House restaurant, which has 150 different beers on tap. So no shortage of venues for socializing! And there are hundreds of other bar and restaurant options within a short walk or free bus ride on the 16th Street Mall shuttle that runs right past the hotel every few minutes.
The hotel is also a short walk from various other sites of interest, including the Colorado State Capitol and the Denver Art Museum, which is where our "Big Party" social event will be on the Thursday night. There's more information on things to do at Visit Denver (and we'll post some more suggestions between now and the conference).
The conference hotel has a block of rooms held, for a limited time, for FOSS4G attendees. These rooms are a discounted rate for a single king or two queen beds. The rate includes in-room wireless internet at no extra charge (a ~$15/day value). To learn more see the following link which includes the special rate and hotel information:
Thanks to our friends at State of the Map for organizing a travel discount with United Airlines, who are the airline with the most flights in and out of Denver. The discount is good for people attending FOSS4G and/or State of the Map. In most cases you should be able to get discounts between 5% and 11% off published fares (with a few exceptions). For all the details and how to book, check here. The discounts also apply on some United codeshare flights with their Star Alliance partners including Lufthansa - see the fine print for details.
