There are blocks of rooms set aside for conference participants at two hotels located near the workshop site on the University of Washington campus. Please note the following important points:

  • It is up to individual workshop attendees to make their own reservations. Please contact the workshop organizers if you have difficulty or need assistance.
  • When you make reservations, carefully follow the instructions below to ensure that you receive the discounted rate.
  • You must make your reservations by August 7 (one month before the workshop begins) in order to be guaranteed availability at the discounted rate. We urge you to make reservations as soon as you can, to assist us and the hotels with planning.

The two workshop hotels (Deca, Travelodge) and instructions for rooms are given below. After that, a third hotel (University Inn) near the workshop site is listed; although we do not have blocks of rooms reserved there, conference attendees are free to book rooms there if they wish.
