Travel Information

As this event is colocated with BSDCan 2010, all information on the BSDCan web page should apply. Here are some suggestions that may make planning easier:

Arrival date

9th May 2010

Departure date

15th May 2010

Travel method

If traveling from outside Ottawa, fly into Ottawa's international airport (YOW), possibly transferring in Toronto (YYZ). Air Canada partners with United Airlines, and has direct flights from many US cities and London Heathrow (LHR) as well as Frankfurt (FRA) into Ottawa.

Visas

Many attendees will be able to use the Visa Waiver program, but check before traveling. If you need a formal invitation letter (never hurts), let us know.

Where to stay

Stay in the university residence halls, or if you really want a hotel, Les Suites. The university residence has two-person suites with private bedrooms but a shared bathroom and kitchenette, and is both clean and comfortable, as well as on-site for the summit.

Remember that you must separately register for BSDCan and the FreeBSD Developers summit; visit the BSDCan and FreeBSD Developers summit web pages for details.
