Transportfrom and to the airport

It is easily accessible using public or private transport. We have chosen for organizational reasons, hire a private service with estimated cost 500 USD (considering 20 people).


Pro and cons about the proposed location


  • By strategic location and its air and land transport:

Córdoba has a strategic location in the bi-oceanic corridor MERCOSUR, with connections and direct scheduled flights (national and international) to major Latinamerican cities (Panamá, São Paulo, Rio do Janeiro, Santiago de Chile, and Lima) and country (Buenos Aires, Rosario, Tucumán, Mendoza, Salta, Iguazú, Resistencia, San Juan and Santiago del Estero). Besides the capital city has a bus terminal station, trains and an important fast access road network to the main tourist areas of the province.

  • By optimus infrastructure:
  1. + 200.000 m² covered area dedicated to events
  2. + de 3000 Five, four and three hotel rooms
  3. 8 Venues at universities

  4. + than 10 Casinos
  5. + than 20 Museums
  6. + than 15 Culture Centers

  • The only disappointment that we perceive is the instability of the costs due to inflation facing the country, and that prevents us making an accurate estimate.

Room alternatives

Option 1: Universidad Empresarial Siglo 21

The University has appointed an adequate infrastructure for this type of event and attracts a quality audience and participatory.


Option 2: Universidad Blas Pascal

The University has appointed an adequate infrastructure for this type of event and attracts a quality audience and participatory.


Option 3: Universidad Tecnológica Nacional, Regional Córdoba

It is located in the center of the Córdoba city, for its location and for being considered one of the most important engineering studies, we see it as a potential candidate.

We have considered two options for receiving ambassadors: the first is a four star hotel located at the city center (King David hotel), often chosen for conferences and events of this nature, the second corresponds to a Hostel also located at central area booking all seats for the occasion. In giving the latter a difference in significant costs, our idea is to call as many members of our Fedora FUDCon.

Star Rating Hotel Name Reference Price Condition
* four starts King David flat Hotel 145 USD per triple room internet, private room (breakfast not included)
* two starts Babilonia Hostel 25 USD per person internet, shared bathroom (breakfast not included, we have free access to the kitchen area.

Breakfast costs 5 USD S per person,we can arrange to bring us.

Transport to FUDCon

From any of the 2 properties mentioned, the conference would be accessed using a private transport, this would be around 300 USD the whole event for everyone.


To define at the event.


With the help of Cordoba Tourism Agency , which will absorb the costs of transfer dated more than 3 months ahead, we have chosen an itinerary for the day Saturday including:

  • Walk in Alta Gracia 35 kms from Cordoba city, include a visit to La Casa - Museo del Che Guevara y Estancia Jesuítica (UNESCO Heritage).
  • La cumbrecita: 125 kms from the Cordoba city, is the firsf Argentina pedestrian town village and is

designed on the side of the Sierras Grandes within a framework of peace and local cuisine amazing.

  • Dique Los Molinos


Please add your name to the list if you will attend. Also, please indicate the following:
  • Put an X in the $$$ column if you need funding to attend, and visit the FUDCon ticket tracker to make a funding request. We have a limited budget and will work hard to fund as many people as possible. We'll use these answers to help figure out budgeting for the event. We are making arrangements for attendees from other geographic regions to encourage specific initiatives such as future FUDCon events, but preference may otherwise be given to people in North America.
  • Put a V in the Veg column if you would like vegetarian fare for any meals that we provide during the event. If you prefer vegan fare, please mark that column VV. We will do our best to make sure everyone is accommodated! Note: "Hell No" and similar statements are offensive to some and should not be included in this column.
  • Put your T-shirt size in the Size column, so we can have an idea about what sizes to have available. Only Unisex (Mens Sizes will be ordered)
  • Roomsharing:
    1. If you want or need to share a room, mark yes in the "Roomshare?" column.
    2. Once you have a roommate, both of you should mark your roommate's name in the block as well.
    3. If you need a roommate, look for someone with just a yes in the column, and contact them via email. If you encounter any problems, let the organizers know.
Use the Comments section for anything else you think organizers need to know, or to offer or ask for space or rides.
