Website Maintenance Alert
Due to scheduled maintenance, the USENIX website will not be available on Tuesday, December 17, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time (UTC -7). We apologize for the inconvenience.
If you are trying to register for Enigma 2020, please complete your registration before or after this time period.
ATTENTION! The LISA15 hotel room block at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park is likely going to fill up, and the hotel is sold out surrounding the USENIX block. If you intend to stay at the hotel, please book your room ASAP!
Additionally, some sessions at LISA are filling up quickly. These sessions include some workshops and tutorials. Space is limited based on room size, so register now before all spots are gone.

Why should you stay in the conference hotel?
USENIX makes every effort to secure the very best hotel rates for our attendees. One way to reduce meeting room rental fees is via our designated hotel room block. However, when our room block is not 100% booked, we face significant financial penalties, which may ultimately force us to raise registration fees.
We encourage attendees to stay in the conference hotel and to identify themselves as USENIX conference attendees when making reservations. We recognize that our attendees have widely varying budgets and we do our best to ensure there are nearby low-cost options for accommodations.
