Accommodation can be booked during the registration process in the registration area, however, if you have already registered and now wish to book accommodation, you need to email the
Conference Secretariat at this link with your booking request.

Effective 21 November 2008, all rates are expressed in US dollars.


We must receive full payment for your accommodation bookings by 12 December 2008. Cancellations or reduction in room nights prior to that date are completely refundable. After 12 December 2008, cancellations or reduction in room nights are non refundable.

While many hotels allow you to hold a room with a credit card number, we must pay in advance due to the number of rooms that we have secured for the Conference. Unfortunately, we cannot confirm your room reservation until we receive payment in full.


If booking accommodations on your own, keep in mind that the Residence Inn Conference Venue is approximately 30 kms from the city centre and it can be up to a 90 minute commute to reach IIT from the city. Also, accommodations in some of the beach areas are 15-20 kms from IIT and can be a 45-60 minute commute.

After your original registration, payment for additional accommodations, dinners and/or tours will be charged to the credit card that we have on file for you.
If you prefer that an alternate card be charged, please submit the new card number when submitting your amended booking request.
