Unconference sessions

To make the most of our unconference time, we're canvassing in advance what topics you'd like to discuss or, better, for which you'd like to lead discussion. Other possibilities are sharing local work of potential applicability to other PLNs or facilitating use of new tools. Please share ideas to the PLN list.


Comparatively affordable, nearby hotels that we frequently recommend for conference visitors include Best Western Riviera, Cardinal Hotel, Stanford Inn, and Stanford Terrace Inn.

Other options may be found in either direction along El Camino Real, though this may put you outside of walking distance. Consult the system map for the free Stanford University shuttle or other local transportation options.


Public transportation options to/from local airports and around the area can be found here.
