[Registration]. The fee is $180. Please register by March 20.

Meeting schedule

Each day will start with coffee and light refreshments at 8:30, and end at 5pm at the latest. The meeting will end with lunch on Friday, April 17. For those who are still aroud, there will be a visit to the computer history museum in the afternoon.


The Hampton Inn is a decent business hotel with good access to downtown, costs about $130/night, and within walking distance of the venue.

Alternatively, you can stay at the NASA lodge, which is actually on the NASA campus:

You will need to tell them which meeting you're attending, and show ID when you check in (you need ID to get into NASA anyway). Ask for the "main building", which is the nicer of the two.

Fly to either San Francisco (SFO) or San Jose (SJC). San Jose is closer but you will not be able to get a direct flight to Europe. If you have to change somewhere in the US, then you might as well fly to San Jose. There are usually evening/late afternoon flights out of SFO to the major European hubs. From SFO you can get the train to Mountain View. A taxi from SFO will cost about $120. A shared shuttle (bus not space) will be considerably less. From SJC, a taxi will be about $50. The meeting is being held at the NASA Ames Research Center, which is in Moffett field, a government base next to the city of Mountain View. To get to Mountain View from SFO you have 3 options: rental car, shuttle, Caltrain. If you're staying at the NASA lodge, then it's probably best to get a shuttle directly there (or drive) because you would still have to get from the train station in Mountain View to Moffett Field. Driving directions from SFO to Mountain View and Ames: [SFO -> Mountain View] Walking directions: [Lodge to NACC] [Mountain View to NACC] [Caltrain] To get to the Caltrain station near the airport you have to first get to the BART station (the Bay Area metro system) and, depending on your terminal, you might have to first get the airport airtrain (http://www.flysfo.com/web/page/atsfo/airtrain/index.html). [The SFO BART Station] is located on the Departures/Ticketing Level of the International Terminal (Boarding Area G side). BART is easily accessed from any terminal by riding [SFO's AirTrain] to the Garage G/BART Station stop. So, to summarize: 1. AirTrain (depending on terminal), 2. BART: one stop from SFO to Millbrae, 3. Caltrain: from Millbrae to Mountain View (14 stops - about 1 hour). Depending on what train you get, it may not stop at all of them Make sure you get Caltrain and BART tickets before you get on the train. However, the connections are not wonderful so this is the best option if you are in particular need of cooling your posterior after a long flight. The Mountain View Caltrain station is in downtown. Shuttles: [Shuttle information] Shuttles, or "shared vans", are shared taxis that leave as soon as they're full. A "limousine" (not as nice as it sounds) is usually not shared, and offers a fixed price from the airport. But some shuttles call themselves limousines. Both shuttle and limousine drivers expect a tip. Shuttle Companies are constantly circling the inner circle of the SFO Complex. The airport tends not to be too busy during the late hours of a week night, but it will not be deserted. It is best to not give your bag to a driver until you have agreed on a price and how long the van will wait for other passengers before leaving. Best value shuttle: South and East Bay Shuttle Shared Shuttle: $39 minimal + $6 for each additional person at the airport and $22 minimal +$6 for each additional person if you reserve ahead of time or online Contact: www.southandeastbayairportshuttle.com (800) 548-4664 ? Local Number: (408) 225-4444 Good Alternative: Supershuttle Shared Shuttle: $39 minimal + 9 for each additional person at the airport and $32.00 + $9.00 each additional person if you reserve ahead of time or online.
