When arranging accommodation, note that in British English a "single", "double", "queen", or "king" room has one individual bed. A "twin" room has two individual beds. A "triple" room has three individual beds. Dates are usually written with the day first, so 07/03/12 is 7th March, 2012. Check whether or not prices are inclusive of VAT (sales tax), and whether they are per-room, or per-person.
We have block bookings at a number of central London hotels from which it is easy to reach the venue by tube. We include details of the connections below (for maps and journey times see http://www.tfl.gov.uk/). It is advisable to book accommodation early to avoid any disappointment. There are a limited number of rooms held at each venue, and any unused rooms are released on 2nd February, 2012.
Bookings at the Best Western Mornington Hotel and Hotel Russell can be made via Banks Sadler.
Bookings at the Hesperia London Victoria are made directly with the hotel via e-mail or phone – e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org quoting group reference 157837322, or phone +442078348123 (outside the UK), or 02078348123 (within the UK).
In addition to these options, attendees may wish to consider budget hotel chains such as Ibis, Premier Inn, and Travelodge. These are more basic than full-service hotels, but can provide cheap accommodation at central locations. Many offer twin or triple rooms. We have no arrangement with any of these hotels, but provide links to some that are near central London tube stations with a straightforward journey to the conference venue:
It is also worth checking the prices for serviced apartments, particularly for longer-term stays for groups.
Registration is being handled via RegOnline at http://www.regonline.com/vee12.
Registration fees should be paid either in US dollars, by Visa, Mastercard, or American Express.
Registration for the main conference includes lunch on both Saturday and Sunday and, subject to budget, dinner on Saturday evening.
Your VEE registration also entitles you, if space permits, to drop in on the various ASPLOS workshops being run over the weekend.
