Registration for Google I/O is officially open. The registration window will be available through April 18th, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. PDT. The event is scheduled to take place June 25th – 26th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.

If you’re interested in attending the conference, you’ll need to register within the next 4 days. The good news is, there’s no rush to register. Due to the high demand to attend I/O, Google will be randomly selecting applicants to purchase a ticket. If you’re selected to attend Google I/O, you’ll need to purchase a ticket for $900 or $300 if you are eligible for an academic ticket.

Here are the registration details from Google I/O’s help page:

We’re making some changes to this year’s registration process. The window to submit a registration application will open at 2:00pm PDT on April 15th and stay open until 2:00pm PDT on April 18th, so you’ll have plenty of time to apply. We’ll randomly select applicants after the window closes on the 18th and notify those selected with their ticket purchase confirmations via email. Qualified registration applicants will be selected at random for ticket assignments. The order in which registration applications are received has no bearing on the final outcome.

Here’s what to expect during the registration application window:

  • You will need to sign into Google+ to begin the registration application.
  • You will then complete the required registration fields and continue on to authorize the purchase of your ticket via Google Wallet. At this time, Google Wallet will not complete the charge, but a pre-authorization will be placed to ensure the funds are available.
  • Your credit card will only be charged if you are assigned a ticket. By completing the registration application, you are authorizing Google Wallet to complete the charge at the conclusion of the application window, should you be randomly selected to receive a ticket.
  • Tickets can only be used by the original registrant and cannot be transferred or resold.
  • Ticket holders have until June 1, 2014 to request a full refund.
  • In order to obtain your Google I/O badge at check-in, a photo ID is mandatory.
