This page shows the conference hotels, the rates available to conference participants and hotel contact information. Some hotels have a limited number of rooms reserved for the conference and/or a deadline for reservation with the special conference rate. Even though some bookings can be made online we recommend contacting the hotel directly to make sure the group rate is given.
