- Nassir has checked the list and has added a new column 'additional or total support'. Here is exactly what he wrote: The numbers written here are the maximum which will be written on your trip requests and paid by the chair. If you would go for the accommodation option below or share rooms/apartments with others you would not need to pay much from your own pocket to complete. If some of you do not want to follow this, then you will need to pay towards this trip beyond the maximum covered by the chair. So be aware of this! -- Asli


After booking your flight, please enter the dates that you will be in Boston in the table so that we can organize who shares the room/apartment with whom to optimize the costs.

As most of you already found out by now, in general hotels are extremely expensive in Boston and if 4 people would not share a room (2 people sleeping in the same bed) there is no way we can finance accommodation in hotels for all of us.

However, I found a very nice hostel with very good ratings and reasonable prices.

Booking.com: Link

Their own webpage: http://bostonhostel.org/

They have free wifi and free breakfast included.

The options are as following:

- Private rooms (they only have 1 or 2 of such rooms available)

One double bed and one single bed with private bathroom. Accommodates up to 3 people, however the receipt is on one name, meaning we can book such rooms for people with funding such as Jose, Amit or Tingying, and 1-2 people can share the same room with no additional costs.

- Dormitories

A bed in 4-bed or 6-bed dormitory: The prices are per beds, no room booking possible. Everybody gets a receipt on their names. If 6 people would share a room the cost for 7 nights accommodation per person would be 338 Euros. The bathrooms and toilets are shared in the hallway, so staying 6 people in one room should not be problematic. Every person gets linens, towels and a locker.

The good thing about this is, that you pay when you are there, and there is free cancellation up to 2 days in advance. It is really close to subway station so the conference venue will be reached in 20 mins.

If we all stay there it will be also fun.

So this hostel is our base/back-up solution for the accommodation, especially for those who have limited funding.

You should reserve rooms/beds now, and we can cancel if we find other better options. One thing to note. If any of you reserve your beds individually, there is no guarantee that you would be in the same room. However, if one of you reserves the whole room (no payment in advance needed, just the credit card for approval), than you all can be in the same room and at check in you will all pay separately and get individual receipts.

Please contact me (Asli Okur) if you have any questions and if you find any other options. Also please let me know if you already reserved a bed/room and who are you sharing the room with.
