A block booking has been made for the EMIS2018 conference at the CERN Hostel (http://smb-dep.web.cern.ch/en/CERN_Housing) which is situated on the CERN Meyrin site close to where the conference will take place. If you would like one of these rooms please fill in the booking form which you can find by clicking the second line next to the paperclip on the conference homepage https://indico.cern.ch/event/616127/ and send it directly to the CERN Hostel via firstname.lastname@example.org. The rooms will be distributed on a first come first served basis up until the deadline of 3rd July 2018.
