IO2014Mark your calendars for June 25th and June 26th as that is when Google will be holding its I/O developers conference at San Francisco’s Moscone West conference hall. The initial event details were announced on Google+ by Android head Sundar Pichai.Google is holding the event in June, a month later than it did last year. Last year’s I/O event took place in early May, with tickets going on sale in March. This year, the conference will be held in late June, which may place it right after Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference. Apple hasn’t confirmed the date for WDDC, but traditionally, the conference is held in mid-June.

The registration date for I/O has yet not been announced. Last year, tickets went on sale in March, but with the later date for the conference this year, it’s difficult to predict when Google will open up ticket sales. This year, though, Google will be using a lottery system to hand out tickets to interested developers.

Also, quick note for those who want to join in person: this year we’re making some changes to registration, so you won’t need to scramble the second registration opens. We’ll be implementing a new system, where you can submit your interest to attend Google I/O 2014. Successful applicants will then be randomly selected and notified shortly thereafter.

For those who don’t receive a ticket, the keynote and the remainder of the event will be live streamed over the Internet.
