Registration is open

We are pleased to announce that registration for FOSS4G 2011 is now open! You can see more details on the various elements of the program here, and click through to register from there. Based on previous experience, we expect that many of the workshops may sell out, so we encourage you to sign up early.

We also 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).

Also remember to take advantage of our flight discount, good for FOSS4G and/or State of the Map.

The call for papers for the main program is currently open, and we'll be announcing the selected papers around the beginning of June.
