Venue

Organizer/host Courtney Kennedy <ckennedy@apple.com>

Date Tues Feb 15, Wed Feb 16th

Place

The meeting will be held in the Rome Room in Building One on the Apple Campus at 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino. There is plenty of parking out front. Building One faces De Anza Boulevard and is directly in front of you as you enter the campus by the main drive.

The Apple Campus at 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino, is at the logical south-west corner of the intersection of De Anza Boulevard and I280 in Cupertino, clearly marked on Google Maps. We suggest you get a rental car, as public transport exists but rather sparsely in this area. See <http://www.vta.org/> for Valley Transit, and <http://tripplanner.transit.511.org/> for general Bay Area transit info and planning.

Airports

San Jose is the closest airport, though both San Francisco and (rather far away) Oakland are also in the bay area. Airport shuttles exist, though, as noted, we expect you'll prefer to have a car.


Room equipment

a projector, screen, whiteboard and phone.

Network

WiFi (802.11), with a minimal firewall (SSID AppleWiFi)

Electricity

120 V, 60 Hz. (US Style)

Money

Local currency is the US Dollar (US$). We hope this is not a surprise.

Food

We expect to provide morning coffee, tea and juice, and afternoon break snacks. If you register, we'll also have a lunch ticket covering a 'reasonable lunch' cost in the cafeteria. Apple has a fine cafeteria and we'll eat there, picking a time when we should be able to find tables to sit together (i.e. before noon or closer to 1pm).


Visa Requirements

The usual US visa requirements apply. If you need an invitation letter, please contact the host or chairs as soon as possible.

Hotels

No room block arrangement has been made.

The Cupertino Inn and the Cypress Hotel may offer special rates for people attending meetings at Apple. It is worth asking.

The Cupertino Inn <http://www.cupertinoinn.com/> is the closest, and it is easy to walk to the meeting from there. The Cypress Hotel <http://www.thecypresshotel.com/> is a little further, but within walking distance (say 15 minutes).

Hotels in Mountain View are easily reached along Highway 85 (which does, however, get somewhat backed up at commute times).

It's possible that people will be willing to car-pool from further away, of course.
