Tourism in Iceland has grown immensely and moderately-priced lodging is quick to fill up during the summer months. We encourage conference participants to book accommodation as early as possible to avoid high prices and limited availability. Websites such as and will provide information about a range of accommodation possibilities.

We have secured a 15% conference discount for a limited number of rooms at Oddsson Hotel which is about a 15 minute walk from the conference venue. They have a range of room types including dorm and private rooms. The discount applies from June 11-17, 2018 with a 2-night minimum stay.
