Announcements From the Organizers


  • Breakfast Tuesday - Thursday is continental (pastry, bagels, fruit). If you want something more substantial the Temple Restaurant in the hotel serves breakfast starting at 6am.
  • Lunch is provided on Tuesday and Wednesday. Lunch options on other days:
    • Renaissance area
      • Temple (in the hotel - macaroni & cheese is yummy)
      • Providence Place Mall - lots of options from upscale (Napa Valley Grill) to 'no surprises' (Cheesecake Factory) to Food Court. The Mall is just down the hill from the Renaissance (exit the hotel and turn right down the hill)

Dinner Plans

  • Sunday & Monday

If your travel plans include arriving in Providence on Sunday or Monday, you may want to hook up with other code4libbers for dinner. We suggest that you go to the lobby fireplace to identify like-minded souls at 5pm, 6pm or 7pm. We will point out a few nearby restaurants for your consideration, including the hotel's Temple Restaurant (http://www.temple-downtown.com/).

Things To Do: Monday

If you have the time and inclination on Monday, you may want to head up College Hill, about 1 mile, to see historic Benefit Street, visit the Brown campus or go to lunch on Thayer Street. If so, you can walk or take advantage of shuttles we’ve arranged for the pre-conferences (but please give priority to pre-conference attendees).

  • 7:45 am – 9:45 pm
  • 11:45 am – 1:45 pm
  • 4:15 pm – 6:15 pm
