==Signing up / Registration==
 
Please sign up using [http://goo.gl/forms/f8uqHHFL2S this form].  If you have trouble accessing it, email [mailto:convention@coreboot.org convention@coreboot.org]
 
 
 
==Fees==
 
Late Registration:
 
* $300 for corporate conference attendees.
 
* $150 for students and non-corporate contributors.
 
If the fee is an issue, please note that on the form when you sign up.
 
 
 
==Target audience==
 
This conference and developer meeting is geared towards manufacturers of hardware (processors, chipsets, mainboards and servers / laptops / tablets / desktops / appliances) as well as developers of firmware with an interest in coreboot and the possibilities it offers as well as (potential) coreboot users. Both professionals and hobbyists are invited.
 
 
 
==When should you attend==
 
We're hoping that many people will choose to attend for all four days of the conference, but we understand that many people can't take that much time away. 
 
 
 
If your main interest is forging business relationships and/or strategic coordination and you want to skip the technical workshops, Monday and Tuesday will be the days for talks, presentations and discussions.
 
 
 
If you are more interested in learning about coreboot development, there will be classes, workshops, and informal discussions on Wednesday and Thursday.
 
 
 
If your main interest is doing development, there will be a separate developer room next to the presentation room all four days of the conference.  We will have various development tools available as well as monitors, power, and wireless network access.
 
 
 
==Call for discussion topics and development suggestions==
 
We hope to stimulate discussion and foster new ideas as well as explore ways to improve code, testing, documentation, development and deployment. The format for this will be a few minutes (5-10) of presenting your idea/topic followed by discussing it with the audience for approximately 5-20 minutes.
 
 
 
===Discussion topic Deadlines===
 
While there is no formal deadline for submission, we'd appreciate a submission to [mailto:convention@coreboot.org convention@coreboot.org] before '''May 27''' to be able to list the topic on the agenda to allow others to think about the topic in advance.
 
 
 
==Call for developers==
 
If you want to do development all day, every day, sign up to come and do it. We have power, networking, development tools and some spare hardware - please tell us in advance if you need something specific.
 
 
 
===Getting to the convention===
 
There are two airports with a reasonable distance of the San Francisco office:  SFO and SJC
 
 
 
If you live in the bay area, we are trying to arrange buses from Google's Mountain View offices to the San Francisco office.  Please let us know if you would like to use these.
 
 
 
If you are traveling from outside of the US and have a passport from a country participating in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), you may apply for an [https://www.usavisaonline.com/esta.html 'ESTA' Travel Authorization].
 
 
 
==Accommodation==
 
<strike>We have reserved a block of rooms with Hyatt.</strike> The Hyatt close to the Google campus proved to be too expensive and required guaranteed reservations that we couldn't provide, so the reserved block of rooms fell through.  We are working with [http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/sfome-fairfield-inn-and-suites-san-francisco-airport-millbrae/ Fairfield Inn & Suites San Francisco Airport/Millbrae] that should be able to provide rooms at roughly $200 per night during that time period.  The Hotel is roughly 15 miles from the conference site, but provides access by rail (BART) with about 1 mile of walking.
 
 
 
The cheapest rooms are probably through one of the [http://www.sfhostels.org/ hostels].  The Downtown hostel is about 1.4 miles (2.25 km) from the Google office. The City Center hostel is about 1.8 miles (2.9 km) away. The Fisherman's Wharf hostel is 2.9 miles (4.7 km) away.
 
 
 
Some of the conference attendees have already booked at the Downtown hostel.
 
 
 
==Spare time activities==
 
We have arranged dinner and a presentation at the [http://longnow.org/ Long Now Foundation] on Tuesday evening.  Because space is limited, only the first 40 people to sign up will be guaranteed seats.
 
 
 
==Food and drinks==
 
Breakfast and Lunch will be supplied at the Google cafeteria for all four days of the convention.
 
 
 
Tuesday Dinner will be at Long Now as mentioned above.  The cost for this is included in the conference fees.
 
Dinner on Wednesday will be at [http://www.palomino.com/ Palomino Urban Italian Restaurant & Bar] at your own expense.
 
 
 
Additional snacks and drinks will be available in the conference rooms.
 
 
 
==Goodies==
 
We will have an assortment of coreboot items available.  The list is not yet set, but we will definitely have the following items available.
 
 
 
- Stickers
 
- Coffee Cups
 
- T-Shirts
 
- Backpacks
