 Tagging on to this thread, a logistical question for the conference
 planning group:
 
 What's the layout of the audience space at UIC Forum - tables and chairs,
 theater seating, etc. - and what'll the power situation be? Trying to
 decide what kind of tech I need to bring.

Is a map of the setup. Power will be better than the Superbowl post
half-time but we expect you to share. :-)

 But if I didn't already own cold-weather gear that I would never need

Hi all,

Apparently code4lib 2013 is going to be held at the UIC Forum

  http://www.uic.edu/depts/uicforum/

I assumed it would be at the conference hotel. This is just a note so
that others do not make the same assumption, since nowhere in the
information about the conference is the location made clear.

Since the conference hotel is 1 mile from the venue, I assume
transportation will be available.

That's a good assumption to make. As to the confusion  I said to you
when you asked me about this a couple of days ago.

http://www.uic.edu/~kayiwa/code4lib.html was supposed to be our
proposal. If you look at the document it also suggests that we were
going to have the conference registration staggered by timezones. We
have elected not to update that because as that was our proposal. When
preparing our proposal we borrowed heavily from Yale's and IU's proposal
and if someone would like to steal from us I think it is fair to leave
that as is.

If you want the conference page use the lanyrd.com link below. I can't
even take credit for doing that. All of that goes to @pberry

So, the location field on Lanyrd is not super specific.  It likes big

as the location though.

Hi all,

I assumed it would be at the conference hotel. This is just a note so
that others do not make the same assumption, since nowhere in the
information about the conference is the location made clear.
   
Since the conference hotel is 1 mile from the venue, I assume
transportation will be available.
   
That's a good assumption to make. As to the confusion  I said to you
when you asked me about this a couple of days ago.
   
http://www.uic.edu/~kayiwa/code4lib.html was supposed to be our
proposal. If you look at the document it also suggests that we were
going to have the conference registration staggered by timezones. We
have elected not to update that because as that was our proposal. When
preparing our proposal we borrowed heavily from Yale's and IU's
  proposal
and if someone would like to steal from us I think it is fair to leave
that as is.
   
If you want the conference page use the lanyrd.com link below. I can't
even take credit for doing that. All of that goes to @pberry

Re: [CODE4LIB] code4lib 2013 location

2013-01-11 Thread Jon Gorman
Gah, I think I forgot to announce this on the list, but there's also
this google map:
https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=213549257652679418473.0004ce6c25e6cdeb0319dmsa=0

which I put on the social page
http://wiki.code4lib.org/index.php/2013_social_activities

I'll go ahead and add the hotel and conference site to that as well if
it's not already there.

 Right now, it has two points: the hotel and the conference location. Please
 add stuff as appropriate if the urge strikes you.
