Conference Location

GOSCON returns to Portland, Oregon on October 20-24, 2008.

Our conference facility for 2008 is the Crowne Plaza Hotel. This newly remodeled and extensively upgraded facility will host the International Open ICT Summit and the Government Open Source Conference as well as serving as the point of departure for the Open Source Tour de Lab.

The Crowne Plaza is located just three blocks from the Max Light Rail system, making much of beautiful downtown Portland immediately accessible. The Max also serves the airport. The Crowne Plaza is also offering shuttle pickup to all GOSCON attendees. Ample and economical parking is available to attendees arriving by auto.

The Crowne Plaza is offering extremely favorable conference rates for accommodations; please visit the accommodations page for more information.
