Mountain View and the San Francisco Bay Area are well served by the San Francisco Intl. Airport and the Norman Y. Mineta San Jose Intl. Airport. Many airline companies, including the most important worlwide alliances offer flights to one of these two airports.
From any of these two airports, there are two options to reach Mountain View:
Travel coordination – page for coordinating airport arrivals, shared housing and hotel rooms, and other travel
UPDATE It looks like the main conference hotel (below) has run out of free rooms for the conference days. A good alternative is the Best Western Plus Mountain View Inn. It is very close to the conference hotel (5 mins. drive) and Castro Street (downtown and main area for hanging out after the conference). Good price/value rating, parking, breakfast and Internet connection.

On the first day of the conference, a reception with food and drink will be hosted on the Terrace. Get to know your fellow conference attendees and make plans from there!
