10th Sakai Conference: Boston

Well, actually, Cambridge.  But if I say “Cambridge” and Sakai in the same sentence, most people will think England.  So, we’ll be in Cambridge, Massachusetts next summer, right across the river from Boston and just next to MIT. The conference dates are Wednesday-Friday, July 8 – 10, with pre-conference sessions on Tuesday the 7th.  Note that due to US Independence Day, we’ve shifted our usual Monday-Thursday schedule.

The official conference hotel, which will also contain most of the conference sessions and receptions, will be the Cambridge Hyatt. It’s a spectacular location and we will have a conference rate of $199/night, which includes internet access (normally $10/day). More information on registration will be forthcoming.

In the meantime, don’t forget about the Sakai Meetings at Virginia Tech on November 11 & 12.  Registration is now open so please sign up!

Finally, the proposed meetings in Berkeley are being repurposed to be a smaller working session, so there currently isn’t a plan for a more general meeting in the Western USA this year. If you’d like to help make one happen, please contact me as soon as possible.

  1. Hi Mike,

    Will there be an opportunity for corporate sponsorship/presenting?

    Thanks,

  2. Would this conference be a good one to attend if we are looking at going to Sakai 3?
