Accomodation

You will find Hotel suggestions, close to the conference venue, on the seperate page linked here.

In Oxford, there is a range of different accommodation options, from classic hotels to modern hotels, bed and breakfast to youth hostels, and university college accommodation. Probably the most complete listing of local accommodation is on the Daily Information website (a local information website about Oxford - see here for more details about Oxford itself). Alternatively, there is another site giving information about Oxford and about accommodation in Oxford, operated by the City Council here.
