NOTE: Please sign up at the conference hotel.
We understand that you are all on a budget, but so are we. We need your hotel room reservations in the Vis ‘98 block at the conference hotel, or else the conference has to pay extra for the conference room rental. Because we have a heavy AV requirement, we have to book a hotel that has large conference rooms and high ceilings. There aren’t many of those who will book a small conference like ours. Please help us out by supporting the conference hotel. We don’t want to have to raise our rates to cover hotel penalties.
