The 19th International Conference on
Principles and Practice of
Constraint Programming
Uppsala, Sweden
September 16-20, 2013

Registration

We recommend that you carefully read the registration terms before filling in the registration form and that you have a credit card ready for the hotel reservation and/or payment for the conference. This electronic transaction is secure, and your credit card information is encrypted during the registration process. Please note that our payment service is connected to the international bank security cooperation 3D Secure (Verified by Visa/MasterCard Secure Code).

Hotel rates and room availability can only be guaranteed, within the capacity of the blocked sections at the two conference hotels, if your booking is made by August 14. The hotel rooms are allocated on a first come – first served basis: if your choice of arrival/departure dates and room type and hotel name is not available in the drop-down menus, then it is sold out, but you may book the closest match of your preferences and write your remaining requests into the “other requirements” field, and a solution will be sought (but cannot be guaranteed), though this may mean changing hotels during your stay. The organisers do not give a best-rate guarantee for the conference hotels, but right now the conference rates at those hotels seem impossible to beat. If all fails, then you are advised to use one of the many internet sites for booking a hotel room.

Registration and hotel booking (at the conference rate) must be completed in the same step: the registration site has no hotel-only option for already registered participants.
