Paper presenters
Presenters (one person per paper and only the person who registered as the presenter of the paper) are offered free accommodation at the Hotel des Almadies, from October 5-8 (three nights, four days). The booking is done automatically by us, you do not need to undertake any arrangements to book a room. Clearly, in case you cannot attend, we would be grateful if you could inform us, so that we can release the room for other participants.

Additional nights and personal expenses such as mini-bar consumption, calls, …are at your own cost and you will need to make the necessary arrangements directly with the hotel. If you want to share the room with a person who is not a paper presenter, eg. a relative, co-author…, the hotel will charge an extra fee for his/her stay.

Other participants
You will have to arrange for your own accommodation. If you book at Hotel des Almadies, please specify that you are coming for the Globelics conference, in which case you will get the preferential room rate. Most participants will be staying at the Hotel des Almadies***(*), with which we have negociated down room rates for Globelics participants to about 85 euro/night.
