09/09/21: When I called the reception today, I was told they'd prefer to have the confirmation be done via email, after all. Something about it being easier to remember. (Johanna)

09/09/24: Anyone else managed to contact them by email? 3 days and no answer. (Ido)

09/09/25: Do you want me to check with them again? Usually it takes them 1-2 days to answer. But we have a couple of conferences on-site and off-site these days... (Mario)

09/09/25: Same here. I sent another email yesterday after 3 days of waiting and got a prompt reply that I should talk to the organizer instead because they don't have the names of the workshop participants. WTF? Time for another phone call, I guess. *sighs* (Johanna)

09/09/26 Ah okay, I'm gonna give them the list of names. They didn't ask for it in the first place. No need to call them and sorry for the confusion. Update: just submitted the list of names. (Mario)

09/09/26: Ok now - got confirmation for a room. (Ido)

09/09/30: So no need to call/email/confirm anything? (Dirk)

09/09/30: Dirk, everyone needs to register with the hostel himself. So please write them an email and they should respond within 24 hours. (Mario)

09/09/30: URL is asking me for a login/password. I've tried sending an e-mail to housing.service @ the domain, but am not sure it will work. Can anyone confirm the contact address? I've booked flights now - arriving Friday at 2:35pm in Cointrin. (Darren Grey)

09/10/01: Darren: the email address is cern.hostel@cern.ch. I'm arriving in Geneva on Thursday at 21:15. (Ido)

09/10/01: Ah, merci! E-mailed them now. I suppose we should get a table of participants set up like in last year's IRDC page? (Darren)

09/10/01: Sure go ahead and make a table. I'm moving this section to the discussion page to avoid cluttering up the main page. (Ido)

09/10/02: Mario: I had to do an official one already anyway (to book a room):

http://indico.cern.ch/conferenceProgram.py?confId=68236

I will have check how people with non-CERN-accounts can access that :-)

Bhaak: I've got no problem reading the page. Anonymous proxies like http://freshide.com/ are convenient for checking IP-restrictions.

09/10/02: Mario: Okay, I got the following confirmations from the hostel. Should you decide to stay shorter that's not a problem. If you want to stay longer, you will have to ask at the desk at arrival. (and in any case I have a large couch as well :) If you decide not to come the room will be forfeit by 5 PM, no extra charges (but it would be nice if you contact the hostel and tell them so they can reassign the room). Payment is preferably done on-site with credit cards or debit cards. If you want to pay cash, we have a bank on-site where you can withdraw money.


09/10/02: Finally got my confirmation as well! It only took me three phone calls and four emails... *sigh* I know why I don't like travelling.
