member; $30 non-member if booked by 1 June 2008. When booking, please put
"ST TUTORIAL $25" or "ST TUTORIAL $30" as appropriate in
the comments section of the registration form to receive the reduced rate (the
rates shown on the form will be the unreduced rate -- think of this as a coupon
code if you like). This price is per tutorial, so it is $50 or $60 total if you
sign up for both AM and PM tutorials. This is our break-even cost of handouts,
facilities, and break refreshments. If you have already registered for DSN,
please do an "update" to add the tutorial.
If you want to charge excursion tickets to a different credit card than your
registration, then: (1) register and complete that transaction (2) do an update

"DSN" as the Group/Convention Code.
Our block rate expires May 16, 2008, and is US $195/night
single/double, non-inclusive of meals. After May 16th, the rate will go up to
the hotel retail rate of approximately US $290/night. (If you missed the
deadline and call the hotel, it doesn't hurt to ask and see if they will give
it to you, but probably they will charge you about US $290 now that it is past
the hotel deadline.)

There is a $50 early check-out fee at the Hilton. This applies
after you check in if you leave before your stated departure date. However, you
can change your departure date at any time before and during the check-in
process without a penalty. (So, if you need to change your departure, don't
forget to do it while you are checking in.) You must cancel a reservation
72 hours in advance to avoid forfeiting your deposit or having
your credit card charged as a "no show." Check-in is 3 PM; check-out
is 12 Noon.
If you wish to share a room, please send e-mail to Jen Black at:
firstname.lastname@example.org with the following
Gender (M/F); Student (Y/N); Smoker (Y/N). She'll provide a name of a possible
match. We act as a referral service only and can bear no responsibility for the
actual room sharing arrangement, which is entirely up to you. If in doubt,
reserve a 2-bed room by the deadline, because it is easier to cancel if you
find someone to share with who already has a room than it is to find a room
after the deadline!
If the Hilton is full, please contact Jen Black at:
email@example.com and ask if we have
identified an overflow hotel. We can't guarantee availability, but we'll try to
help you out.
