2016 Accommodations



Rooms are now filled at the Rolduc Conference Centre.  However, they may be last minute cancellations that create room availability. You can contact the Rolduc Conference Centre and ask if there have been any cancellations. Otherwise, at this point, please look at the optional nearby hotels, or check Airbnb since there are a few private homes in the area. Options are listed below.

Also check the Roommate | Travelshare blog in the event someone already has a room reservation and is also looking for a roommate. Neither IASD nor the Rolduc Conference Center will assign roommates so please arrange these prior to making your reservation. To connect with potential roommates you may go you may go to the Roommate / Travelshare blog Multiple occupancy rooms must be billed to a single individual, so arrange this with roommates ahead of time and tell the hotel of your arrangement.

Rolduc Conference Centre – the conference centre is the best choice for cost and schedule (getting to the conference events on time). A limited block of discounted rooms with the capacity for housing most of the participants has been reserved, but please book early for the best chance of staying there or obtaining the type of room you want. The rooms are simple (some with bath, some with bath down the hall) but with very reasonable prices.

You must make your lodging reservation directly with the Rolduc Conference Centre by contacting them at info@rolduc.com or Telephone +31 45 54 66 888 and asking for the IASD Conference subscription rate in order to get the reduced fee.
