I am a postdoc from CNRS (France). I have a booking at a hotel just 15 mins walking away from the convention center. The room can accommodate two people, and I have requested for separate beds. I would be happy to share the room with another person. For 6 days, the price per person would be $290-$330 (there are two options; both tentatively reserved). Do get in touch with me if you are interested and would like to know more details.
I am having trouble logging on to this forum, and so would be unable to respond here. So please email be directly at: email@example.com.
