USENIX Conferences Are Green!

We are pleased to announce our commitment to producing conferences that are environmentally responsible. We are working with our suppliers to minimize the negative impact on the environment. Here are just a few ways we're making this happen:

  • Conference bags, sponsored by VMware, are made from 85% recycled bottles.
  • The Proceedings are printed on 30% recycled paper.
  • We have replaced the plastic packaging for the CDs with recyclable paper envelopes.
  • The signs are mounted on biodegradable foamcore with 15% recycled content.
  • The Grand Hyatt participates in food composting in the hotel kitchen.
  • You can help, too! Please recycle your name badge at the USENIX registration desk when you depart.
