OSW 2018 will be held at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara in Santa Clara, CA (San Francisco Bay Area). The Hyatt is located at 5101 Great American Parkway in Santa Clara.

Santa Clara is located in the heart of Silicon Valley, and is just north of San Jose, at the southern end of San Francisco Bay.

The locations within the Hyatt Regency where OSW activities occur are the ballroom and several meeting rooms. All rooms are carpeted and well lit.

For the newcomer, maps can be useful.

This map shows the mezzanine level on the top and the lobby level on the bottom. On the mezzaine level, videos projected onto a screen are shown in the Cypress Room which is accessable by escalator or elevator. On the lobby level, clinics and the diorama contest are held in the Mendocino, Sonoma, and Napa rooms (ignore the layouts indication - this is an old map) which are a short walk past the registration desk.

The ballroom is 25,000 square feet all in one room. It is a short walk on the lobby level past the lobby bar and restaurants. This map shows the ballroom location relative to the lobby. The OSW registration desk is opposite the entrance to section C of the ballroom.

The meet schedule, available for pick up in the convention registration area, states when all activities will occur and their location.
