Hotel Reservation Discount Deadline: Friday, January 26, 2007  Deadline Extended!

Why should you stay in the headquarters hotel?
We encourage you to stay in the conference hotel and when making your reservation to identify yourself as a USENIX conference attendee.

It is by contracting rooms for our attendees that we can significantly reduce hotel charges for meeting room rental. When the sleeping rooms are not utilized, we face significant financial penalties. As a result, these penalties ultimately force us to raise registration fees.

We recognize, however, that not everyone can afford to stay in the conference hotel, so we always try to book venues that have some low-cost alternatives available near the conference.

With costs going higher and higher, we are working very hard to negotiate the very best hotel rates and keep other conference expenses down in order to keep registration fees as low as possible. We appreciate your help in this endeavor.

USENIX has negotiated special rates for conference attendees at the San Jose Marriott. Please make your reservation as soon as possible by contacting the hotel directly. You must mention USENIX to get the special group rate.
