ICFP 2016 Hotel Information

We have made block reservations at several hotels through Nippon Travel. Please go to the dedicated site to book your room.

The hotels are almost fully booked, but on August 16 we have added 15 beds at the Nara Youth hostel, which is reasonably close. You may need to combine with other hotels if you plan to stay for the post-workshops. If you have problems finding accommodation, you can contact the travel agency at kansai_gakkai@nta.co.jp. You can of course look for a room by yourself, but be careful that Nara Prefecture is large, so check the distance to the conference site (by public transportation). Osaka, particularly the area close to Namba, can also be a good choice as it is about 45mn by train to Kintetsu Nara.

Here is a short description of the hotels in the block reservation. Note that the block reservations are only available through the above link, do not contact the hotels directly.
