Open Source and Sustainability 2006 - registration process

by Randy Metcalfe on 5 January 2006


Open Source and Sustainability is a 3-day conference (see programme). It runs from 13:30 on Monday, 10 April, to 12:30 on Wednesday, 12 April. Registration is for the entire three days of the conference.

There is an optional conference dinner on the Monday evening, the 10th. This will be held in hall at Exeter College. Seating is limited, so do book early.

Oxford is a popular tourist destination with many options for accommodation. In addition, OSS Watch has reserved a small number of ensuite rooms at Worcester College. Worcester College is approximately a 3-minute walk from the conference venue, the Said Business School. There are 30 rooms available on 10 and 11 April - note - reservations must be for both nights. The cost of an ensuite bedroom is £75.79 (inc. VAT) per night and this includes English or Continental Breakfast served in the 18th century dining hall. There are no parking facilities. Worcester College is set in 26 acres of gardens and some of the accommodation is a ten minute walk around the lake from the college entrance. Regrettably, we can only refund booked college accommodation if we can reallocate the room to another delegate, otherwise you will be liable for the full cost. See cancellation policy
