Lodging & Meals

We are delighted you are joining us for the 41st International IASD Conference. If you require lodging in the area, you can make your lodging reservations directly with the hotel. For your convenience, you can pre-book your meals when signing up for the conference through our website.


The conference center, Abbey Hotel Rolduc, is the best lodging choice for discounted rooms and for ease in getting to the conference events on time. To offer you the best rates for rooms, which include a lavish breakfast buffet, we have committed to a block of 125 rooms.

Most have two beds and you can reserve them as singles or doubles. Register early for the best choice of rooms. We have committed to this block, so we need to fill it, but if we run out, additional rooms beyond our initial reservation may become available to us on a space-available basis. There are other hotels in the Kerkrade area, but we hope you can and will join the group at the Abbey Hotel Rolduc.

Hotel Rolduc Abbey Booking Instructions:

The discounted rooms for our conference, with breakfast included, have been offered to us for our conference registrants only. Do not attempt to book a room until you register for the conference. Rolduc requires a unique Booking Code to reserve a room in the IASD block, which you will only receive in your confirmation e-mail when you register for the conference. To book a room you would then send an e-mail with the code as the subject to sales@rolduc.com.

Note that the comfort rooms are running out quickly with only single and double economy rooms available, so if you are ok with an economy room if no comfort room are available  please let them know in your booking email.  

The e-mail needs to list:

  • your first name and surname as listed in your conference registration (otherwise we won’t know it is you).
  • if you book a double for two (perhaps a roommate or family member) you must include names and numbers of those staying in the room with you
  • complete billing address details including e-mail and phone number,
  • the type of room and the dates you request. If you wish state that if the room type listed is not available, please book me in an economy room (specify single or double).
  • and if you wish to also address your invoice to a company or organization, please include those details.

You should within a few days receive an email from Rolduc thanking you for your booking request, plus a reminder that you should have registered for the conference prior to booking in order that IASD can confirm your registration (it could be cancelled if this there is no conference registration matching your booking). Booking terms include payment on arrival (Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Maestro, Vpay, Cash), cancellation must be before 11 am on day of arrival, no shows will be billed full amount of reservation (please avoid letting this happen in order to avoid an expensive transaction to both IASD and yourself).   Please note that at Rolduc they process your booking manually. If a lot of bookings come in at once, receiving a confirmation email may take a few days.

Lunch Buffet

To fully enjoy the gathering of like-minded dreamers, a tasty variety of foods, and make it to your next sessions on time, it is highly recommended for you to purchase lunch buffet tickets. Buffet selections are extensive and accommodate special diets – including meat, vegetarian/vegan and gluten free entrées on the buffet itself plus plated special dietary selections when pre-ordered. Also, the price is consistent with the area and there are no nearby restaurants, the closest being in Kerkrade, over a 1-mile (1.6km) walk from the Abbey.

Packaged Meal  for Monday Hike

Join us on Monday 10 June for an exciting 2-hour German/Dutch Frontier Hike planned during the free time and dinner break at around 18:00.  A packaged meal with drink can be pre-reserved for $17 (€ 15). It will contain 2 sandwiches (choice of meat, vegetarian/cheese or vegan/hummus), two rolls/small subs (in Dutch: belegde broodjes), fruit such as an apple or pear, fruit yoghurt, a boiled egg and a bottle of water.  There is likely no further special dietary options. Since that evening it is “dinner on your own” (no buffet) you may want to purchase this anyway if you just want a light snack or wish to picnic on the grounds during free time, or don’t otherwise want to make it into town.

Dinner Buffet

A dinner buffet is served on two of the conference evenings, Sunday 9 June and Tuesday 11 June, when the conference schedule is tight with evening keynotes. On the other evenings we have provided 2½ hour to 3-hour breaks for you to dine on your own in nearby Kerkrade.

Special Diet or Allergy?  Rolduc has stated that they will mark all of the dietary categories on the buffet. If you have a special dietary need or allergy beyond those listed, you can specify it in the comments box provided in the Dietary Selections item before you click the PROCEED button.  We respectfully ask that you only specify actual needs rather than preferences – please be courteous to our IASD volunteers as well as the Rolduc staff who have to manage the process.
