AOSCC 2017

  • 简体中文版指南
  • 正體中文版指南

Welcome to our 4th annual community gathering, and this time in Guangzhou, from July 14th to 16th!

AOSCC is your prime opportunity to meet our developers and friends online in person. AOSCC is also a great chance for our developers to exhibit our achievements and issues of the past year, and to discuss plans for the year coming with community members; for friends of our community, it is also a great platform to share their skills, opinions, and actions for free and/or open source software.

Moreover, attendees could take part in our community projects' workshops to gain hands-on experience with our development efforts.

Location

AOSCC 2017's venue is generously sponsored by the Electronic Engineering Club of Guangdong University of Technology - on their campus location at the H.E.M.C. (Higher Education Mega Center; 大学城).

The gathering will take place in Experiment Building 4, Room 304(实验四号楼 304 实验室), here are some maps to the location...

Transit

It is quite easy to travel to and from H.E.M.C. with the Metro system - Line 2 and 4 both run through the H.E.M.C. South station which is within 300 metres of walking distance from our venue.

The Line 7 mostly serves as a East-West lane between the H.E.M.C., the southern districts, and the Guangzhou South Railway Station; Line 4 runs North-South from the southern border to the east urban area. That said, there are some rules of thumbs for your convenience when travelling around Guangzhou...

CRH Trains

If travelling on CRH trains (dispatch numbers starting with C/D/G), you will probably arrive at...

The Guangzhou South Railway Station - take the Line 7 to the H.E.M.C. South station.

Or...

The Guangzhou Railway Station (or as most living in Guangzhou call the "old station") - take the Line 5, and interchange with Line 4 at Chebeinan station, then get off at H.E.M.C. South station.

Or...

The Guangzhou East Railway Station - take the Line 1 (from Guangzhou East Railway Station), and interchange with the Line 5 at Yangji station, then interchange with the Line 4 at Chebeinan station, and finally get off at the H.E.M.C. South station.

Regular Railway

If travelling on regular railway (dispatch numbers starting with K/T/Z), you will probably arrive at...

The Guangzhou Railway Station (or as most living in Guangzhou call the "old station") - take the Line 5, and interchange with Line 4 at Chebeinan station, then get off at H.E.M.C. South station.

Or...

The Guangzhou East Railway Station - take the Line 1, and interchange with the Line 5 at Yangji station, then interchange with the Line 4 at Chebeinan station, and finally get off at the H.E.M.C. South station.

Airway

If travelling by plane, you will probably arrive at the Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (ICAO: ZGGG, IATA: CAN) - take the Line 3 North Extension from Airport South Station, interchange with Line 3 (normal) at Tiyuxilu Station, then interchange with Line 5 at Zhujiang New Town Station, then again, interchange with Line 4 at Chebeinan Station, and finally, get off at the H.E.M.C. South station.

If time allows, it's a good idea to take a shuttle bus from the air port to Guangzhou North Railway Station and take a train down to the South Railway Station, and finally interchange with Line 7 there to H.E.M.C. South Station.

Lodging

Lodging in Guangzhou could vary quite a bit in quality and price, but here's several economical choices we could recommend to you - eating in Guangzhou is a must, so we have ranked those higher in relation to the ease of transit between the venue and the hotels.

Here below we have listed several of our recommendations based on its nearby facilities (transit and restaurant, though most listed below have easy access to restaurants and shopping facilities) offer approximated pricing on each.

TL;DR, when recommending these hotels, we prioritised heavily on public transit access (especially Metro), restaurants, affordability, and general safety (hence the heavy bias on chain hotels).

Economic

These are hotel choices with pricing below CNY 300 per night (for two, or more if you wish; prices could be lower than listed below in July), mostly found along Metro lines. Most of the ones listed below are within 1 hour of Metro ride from the venue...

The two recommended below are near the Chigang or Kecun station on Line 2 (transfer from Line 4... see the links to the maps below for more information), this location in Guangzhou offer relatively low prices on hotels - not to mention the vibrant dining and entertainment choices offered there.

Hotel Approx. Pricing Map
7 Days Inn Near Kecun Station CNY 150-250 Google Maps
Home Inn Near Chigang Subway Station CNY 150-230 Google Maps

The three below are found near the Tiyuxilu station on Line 3 or Tianhe Sports Centre station on Line 1 (again, see the maps for yourself), this is rougly the downtown area of Guangzhou, though prices could be higher when seeking food, the choices are quite numerous - ranging from Cantonese dimsum to North-Eastern style foods.

Hotel Approx. Pricing Map
7 Days Inn on Tianhe E. Road CNY 180-240 Google Maps
Home Inn on Longkou E. Road CNY 200-230 Google Maps
Hanting Hotels on Longkou W. Road CNY 150-200 Google Maps

Premium

If you do feel a bit charitable or on a vacational spirit, there are great choices around Tianhe Area, along Line 3 between the Tianhe Coach Terminal station and Canton Tower station. As very few would find the need for one, we are not going to list any below.

"They should be quite easy to spot."
— Mingcong Bai

Scenic

There are many great scenic locations along the new Haizhu Island Circular New Tram or Haizhu Tram 1. You could interchange with this line with Line 3 or the APM (Automated People Mover System) Line at Canton Tower station on these lines, or with Line 4 or 8 at Wanshengwei station.

Do search it up with a map though as prices could vary greatly depending on the location, generally the closer you get to the Canton Tower, the more expensive it gets - as Canton Tower signifies the start (or some would say the "central") to the CBD (Central Business District) area in Guangzhou.

Airbnb?

Sure, there are many households who could rent short term in Guangzhou, but do look out for locations near Metro stations - it would make your life infinitely easier.
