We invite all TPAC participants to:
   1) Register (see below) and
   2) Make your hotel reservation via the hotel booking link, “as an attendee":

W3C has arranged discount room rates from 4 until 11 November 2017 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport in Burlingame, CA.
We recommend making hotel reservations by mid-July at the latest.

Travel Advisory:
Dreamforce '17 is scheduled over TPAC dates, 6-9 November 2017 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. Dreamforce attracts approximately 170,000 people. Hotels expect to sell out in San Francisco and surrounding cities.

Plenary Day 2017 (Unconference)

Plenary Day 2017 consists of unconference breakouts for TPAC participants.

We invite attendees to suggest breakout sessions via the wiki:

Advisory Committee Meeting / Group Meeting Overlap

Group Meetings Schedule: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday:

   * 08:30-18:00: Traditional Group face-to-face meetings
   * 12:00-14:00: Lunch (each group will determine their lunch time)
   * 15:00-18:00: Unstructured time (for those groups that so choose)

Some groups have requested guidance on when to allocate Unstructured time to break into parallel informal discussions within their groups, for more cross-group conversation, or for more hallway conversation.

We encourage groups to have these informal discussions overlap the AC meeting to minimize hard conflicts for AC reps, and we encourage all groups to schedule their unstructured time at the same time, thus creating more opportunities for interaction.

We have scheduled the AC Meeting towards the end of the day from 15:00 to 18:00 on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. We hope this will minimize the likelihood of conflicts with group meetings.

AC Representatives who would also like unstructured time within their Groups have the opportunity to use Monday and Friday and thus avoid conflict with the AC meeting.

Remote participation

Working/Interest/Business Groups may request telephone access for remote participants. We plan to use MIT's webex system as we have done for the past few AC Meetings.

If you plan to attend the Advisory Committee Meeting remotely, please let us know on <> as the number of requests may play a role in the level of service we provide.

IRC will be available for all meetings.
