Getting There

We will be running a shuttle from the conference hotels to Wellesley. Wellesley Square is approximately a mile (1.6km) from the conference site. The shuttles to the conference site will pick up at the following locations and times:


For more details on the shuttle schedule, including return shuttles, please refer to the program. The shuttles have a set schedule, so please be on time as so not to miss them.


The registration desk is located right inside the main entrance of the Lulu Chow Wang Campus Center (LWC). Please note that the main entrance is on the 2nd floor of the building, though it appears to be at ground level when arriving from the main campus entrance.

You do not need to bring your ticket - in order to speed up the registration process, we will simply be checking names.

Eating at the Conference

Breakfast will be served both mornings, right near the registration desk in LWC. There is also a small cafe on the second floor of LWC with snacks, coffee, and drinks available for purchase.


Downtown Wellesley is about two miles (3.2km) from the Babson Conference Center, and the Crowne Plaza is right by the Natick Mall and Shopping Center.

Unconference, BoFs, and other events

What makes an unconference great is the diverse and unexpected perspectives that come together to facilitate wonderful conversations. A space where you can add your unconference topic ideas will be available Tishman (1st floor, LWC). This will help us transition smoothly from regular conference proceedings to unconference time.


EdCast will also be performing and livestreaming interviews of conference speakers to discuss their talks in more depth. This will be in LWC Room 413, and you can also view the interviews live or after they’ve been recorded at

Remote Participation

If you can’t join us in person, there are still ways to keep up with the action.


If you use IRC, the Open edX IRC channel is #edx-code on Freenode — it will likely be active during the conference.


As a reminder, there will be a hackathon in downtown Boston following the conference, October 13th and 14th. Details can be found on the hackathon website. If you didn’t RSVP Yes in your conference registration, it’s not too late to join! Visit the registration desk at any time during the conference to get your name added to the hackathon guest list.
