Student registrants to ACM SIGMOD have the opportunity to choose cheaper alternate accommodations at Columbia University. Reservations are made via the conference registration site. At registration time (or after initial registration) students may elect to take the six-day accommodation package at a cost of $530. Accommodations are provided from June 22 through June 28. You can arrive later or leave earlier if you wish, but the cost of the accommodation will remain the same. *** The student housing cancellation deadline is June 2, 2013.
The rooms are in McBain Hall,
