Hotel rooms

As this will be a 2-day meeting, we have arranged for hotel accommodation on site; we offer private and shared rooms. There is a limited number of hotel rooms available, people with a NBIC position have priority, also shared rooms have priority above private rooms. Therefore (private) rooms cannot be guaranteed, we will contact you in case your room choice is no longer available.
During the registration procedure you can indicate if you would like to share a room with a specific person by filling out his or her name and e-mail address. If you leave this field open the organizers will choose a roommate for you.
