Note that in order to book rooms at the reduced rates, you will need a conference code which you will receive upon registration (see below) along with further information on the booking process. We urge you to book accommodation well in advance because the rooms will also be available to tourists.

In case you are looking for a partner to share a double room with, we will be glad to offer assistance. Please indicate your wish in the registration interface.

If you plan to bring an accompanying person not attending the conference, please get in touch with us. Please note that accompanying persons are not eligible for reduced rates at the hotel.

Alternatively, you can find a variety of hotels in downtown Ascona or Locarno. Please note that the conference center is located on top of a hill (120m, 397–538 steps).

Please also note that it is mandatory to book the conference meals (lunch and dinner) with the conference center even if you stay elsewhere.
