Why should you stay in the conference hotel?

One way USENIX reduces meeting room rental fees is via our contracted hotel room block. When our room block is not fully booked, we face significant financial penalties, which may ultimately force us to raise registration fees. For this reason, we encourage attendees to stay in the conference hotel and to identify themselves as USENIX conference attendees when making reservations.


USENIX never sells or rents your contact information. All communications regarding your registration will come via email from Anyone contacting you regarding registration or hotel and travel accommodations, who is not acknowledged on the USENIX website, is not affiliated with USENIX. Please make your hotel reservations directly with the Sheraton Boston Hotel, or via the link on this page.
