DISCLAIMER: The local organizers have done their best to ensure
enough rooms in hotels for conference participants who quite possibly
have different budgets, preferences, and expectations. However, we
cannot guarantee your satisfaction and, as we do not run any hotel
ourselves, we cannot help you in finding a room if you decide to leave
your reservation for the last minute. NOTE: The end of August is a busy
period in Uppsala, and it may be nearly impossible to find a room at
all if you do not make your reservations in time.
The following is a list of the hotels which have rooms reserved for
the conference. Give the name of PLI 2003 when you make your
reservations, so that you get the conference price. Please
note: the number of rooms listed are those initially reserved, not
the number still left. The deadline for the reservations varies with the
hotel. After these dates, there may still be rooms available, but there
is no guarantee.
