For attendees starting to make travel plans, please note the following:
- The UMD campus is accessible by bus and metro train from both Washington, D.C. and Baltimore (and their associated airports: BWI in Baltimore and Reagan in DC). Those who fly to Baltimore should factor in the 30-40 minutes bus ride from BWI to UMD. UMD lists more travel information here.
- The conference hotel is the UMD Marriott. Please do book ahead of time, as this is the main hotel for all campus functions.
- Update: We will be showing the new eurogames documentary Going Cardboard on Thursday evening (1/19) at 5pm (location is TBA but will be on UMD campus), probably followed by a Skype Q&A with the film maker. Registration for the conference will not begin until the morning of 1/20 (pre-Bootcamp sessions).
We’ll be sending you all website accounts information and instructions on writing unconference session proposals in late December/early January, but if you’re rarin’ to get started, the main THATCamp site has some great suggestions and examples for writing a session proposal (you won’t be able to post your writing until we create THATCamp Games site accounts for everyone in late December/early January, but feel free to start drafting offline).
