Hotel Accommodations


There is a city wide convention (PC Expo @ the Javits CC) over the same dates as ICS 02. You are strongly encouraged to make your room reservations ASAP. Hotels will be filling up quickly and rates will be increasing at hotels throughout the city as occupancy rates increase.

Low cost housing for students

A limited number of rooms are available for student attendees of ICS'02 at Carman Hall, Columbia University. Click here for more details.
