The W3C will host a reception Wednesday evening, 28 February from 18:00-20:00 at the hotel. Beverages and light hors d'ourvres' will be served. We encourage folks to take this opportunity to meet working group members from other W3C groups.
Logan International Airport is the closest international airport to the meeting site. The Royal Sonesta Hotel is located three miles from Logan. The travel time between the airport and the hotel (meeting site) will vary between 30 minutes to one hour depending on traffic conditions. Taxi fares will range between $18.00-$28.00.
Please Note: All events will take place at the hotel. There is a large shopping mall, The Galleria, across the street so you will not need a car during the week.
There is a major road construction project going on in Boston called the "Big Dig." For this reason, we recommend taking a taxi or public transportation rather than renting a car. If you prefer to rent a car, all major car rental companies have locations at Logan Airport (Avis, Budget, Hertz, etc.).
Ten meeting rooms have been reserved for Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday to accommodate W3C Working Group (WG) and Interest Group (IG) face to face meetings. Wednesday has been reserved for a Plenary. Everyone is encouraged to attend the plenary and to meet with other W3C groups during lunch and break times. The Wednesday Technical Plenary will be open to all W3C Working Groups and Interest Groups.
