To provide a high-quality conference at a reasonable price, the conference organizer has a contractual obligation to fill a block of rooms in the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel. Please consider staying at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel, to make ISITA a great event. For the mutual benefit of the participants, the hotel and the conference organizer, we have negotiated to allow the participants to stay at Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel at a greatly discounted rate.

Room Type Nights of Oct. 30-Nov. 1 Night of Nov. 2
Single $99 $169
Twin $149 $169
Triple $169 $169
  • The discounted rate is available for stays from October 30 through November 2. Please note that the room rate for 11/02/2016 is different from the other days.

  • State tax (11.6%) and local tax ($3.00 per night) will also be charged to this rate.

  • Resort Fee ($20.00 + tax per night) is exempted if you book through our web site. Notice that the fee is automatically charged if you use external hotel-reservation sites, that makes >$80.00 difference for four nights stay.

  • Wi-Fi service will not be offered from the conference organizer. Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel offers complimentary Wi-Fi service to hotel guests.

  • The number of rooms is limited. The promotion is terminated when all rooms in the contracted block are sold. Participants are encouraged to make room reservations as early as possible.

  • On-line reservation of the hotel also closes on Oct. 17 (or earlier if all rooms are sold). There will be no on-site arrangement of hotel rooms.

Registration Changes, Refunds and Cancellations

Registration cancellations received up to September 30, 2016 will receive a full refund, but $50 is reduced as a processing fee. No refunds will be given for registration cancellations received on or after October 1, 2016.

ISITA2016 does not refund registration fees of authors of papers accepted for publication unless all papers and the registration are withdrawn before the final submission deadline.

 A similar policy applies for the cancellation/change of the reservation of hotel rooms:

  • The reservation can be cancelled or changed (subject to availability) by September 30, but a $50 fee is collected. This fee does not apply if the change increases the total amount of payment (e.g., room upgrade, extension of stay).
  • Refunds or changes to the room reservation are not allowed on October 1 or later.
