The hotel chosen for accommodations for the NACCL-20 conference is:
University Plaza Hotel and Conference Center
Owned by The Ohio State University Endowment, the University Plaza Hotel offers complimentary transportation to The Ohio State University campus, the site of the main events of the conference.
When you reserve a room — phone-in reservations only — be sure to identify yourself as attending the 20th North American Conference on Chinese Linguistics, or NACCL-20, to receive a discount on accommodations ($99.00/night, king beds). (Rollaways are available for $15.00/night.) The discounted rate also holds for extension of overnight accommodation before and/or after the conference, but would be subject to room availability.
A total of 65 rooms have been reserved for conference participants — a block of 25 rooms for the nights of 24-26 April 2008, and an additional block of 40 rooms for the two nights of 25th and 26th of April 2008. While we might be able to negotiate more rooms for the first and subsequent nights (either at the conference hotel or at other hotels in the vicinity), the current block of rooms at the conference group rate is only guaranteed to be available until 17 March 2008. Please make your reservations early to be guaranteed a room at the conference hotel and at their conference group rate. Reservations received after 17 March 2008 are subject to availability and may not qualify for the conference group rate.
Room-mates and Room-Sharing:
We regret that we will not be trying to arrange crash space for student presenters. This is because the conference takes place in the middle of our Spring Quarter. As a result, our graduate students will be very busy with their course work, with course preparations in their teaching, and with conference activities. Instead, members of the Graduate Association of Chinese Linguistics (GACL) — a special component of the NACCL-20 Organizing Committee — will do their best to provide graduate students from out of state and abroad with contact information on other participants who are also looking for room-mates to share hotel costs. For assistance, please contact the Graduate Association of Chinese Linguistics at firstname.lastname@example.org.
