If you registered before the event sold out, here are some notes on attending: Please arrive at the State Department's 21st Street Entrance (Between C and D streets, see Google Map) no later than 7:45am Nov. 4 so you can proceed through security and be ready for the event to begin promptly at 8:30am. A continental breakfast will be served, so come early, eat and network. The World Bank will host lunch and the afternoon's breakout sessions. The Nov. 5 events are all at the World Bank at 1818 H St. NW (see Google Map). A downloadable map of how to get from State to the World Bank is here.

Tech@State connects technologists to the U.S. diplomacy and development goals via physical and virtual networking events. As part of Secretary Clinton's 21st Century Statecraft initiative, Tech@State connects leaders, innovators, government personnel, and others to work together on 21st-century technology solutions to improve the education, health, and welfare of the world's population. Previous Tech@State events have covered the aftermath of the Haiti Earthquake and Mobile Money.
