The GO Consortium will be holding a GO Annotation Camp for three and a half days at Stanford University from Wednesday, June 1st at 9 am through Saturday, June 4th at noon. The agenda for the Camp will focus on making GO annotations from research literature with lots of time spent working through specific papers.

Special reservation rates have been arranged with the the Cardinal Hotel, located close to the Stanford campus. The Cardinal is offering a GO Camp Group Room Rate of $99 per night. The number of rooms reserved for this conference is limited, therefore we encourage you to make your room reservations before the deadline for special hotel rates on May 10, 2005.

On June 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, the meeting will run from 9am to 5pm and lunch will be provided provided. On the evening of Friday June 3rd, there will be a meeting dinner at a restaurant in Palo Alto. On June 4th, the meeting will start at 9am and will conclude at noon. The specific rooms have not yet been determined; this page will be updated when that information is available. There is NO registration fee for the camp. If you would like to attend, please submit the registration form (see link below). Some funds will be available to support the participation of people who might otherwise be unable to attend.

Airports, ground transportation, accomodations, parking, and transportation to Stanford:

There are two airports that are convenient for travelling to Stanford. Both are about 20 miles away.
San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC)

Ground Transportation

Shuttles, taxis, and car rental agencies service both airports. There are many shuttle services serving these airports, especially San Francisco, though not all serve the region in which Stanford is located. Here are two which serve both airports and the Stanford vicinity: Super Shuttle and South and East Bay Shuttle (1-800-548-4664). If you fly into San Francisco, you can often hop on a shuttle within 15 minutes even without booking, but if you will arrive late or if you will fly into San Jose, you should book in advance.


We have reserved a block of rooms at a discounted rate at the Cardinal Hotel in downtown Palo Alto, very close to Stanford. There is a special registration website set up to make reservations at the special rate of $99/night. The number of rooms reserved for this conference is limited, therefore we encourage you to make your room reservations early. Please note the deadline for the discounted rate is May 10, 2005.

How do I get to the Stanford campus?

Here are general directions to the Stanford campus, for driving, public transportation, and from airports.

Directions to the specific site will be added once that information is available. However, it will not be necessary to rent a car. There are free Stanford Shuttles (Marguerite) that run from the train station near the Cardinal Hotel to all locations on the Stanford campus. If you do wish to park a car on the Stanford campus, visitor pay parking typically costs about $12/day.
