How to Register
NOTE: There was an error in the student fees for SIGCOMM '96. The registration
forms did not have the same prices as the advance program. This has been
corrected (by chosing the lowest price in every case). The on-line registration
forms have been corrected to reflect the new charges. SIGCOMM apologizes
for the inconvenience.
You can register for ACM SIGCOMM '96 any one of four ways:
- You can request a copy of the registration brochure from ACM by e-mailing

- You can download a PostScript copy of the
registration form and mail or FAX it to the registration address.

form and e-mail it to the registration address.
- You can register at the conference itself at the conference registration
ACM SIGCOMM '96 has arranged special rates both at the Palo Alto Holiday
Inn and in on-campus housing at Stanford. NOTE: The Holiday Inn is very
near to selling out of rooms. Suggestions for other hotels to try are listed
after the Stanford University information.
Palo Alto Holiday Inn
The Holiday Inn is located right next to the Stanford University campus
by the intersection of El Camino Real and University Avenue. It is about
a 15 minute walk to the buildings where the conference will be held.
The conference hotel rates are $99 (single) and $109 (double) plus tax.
To book a room call the hotel at +1 415-328-2800. You must mention "Association
for Computing Machinery" to get the special conference rate.
Rooms are available on the Stanford campus. Rooms have daily maid service
on weekdays and have Ethernet connectivity to the Internet (but no phone).
Bathrooms are shared. The rooms are in recently renovated dorms.
The room rates are $41 (single), $58.50 (double). Rooms must be booked by
To book a room, contact the Stanford Conference Office at +1 (415) 725-1429.
There are a number of good hotels in Palo Alto. Two, which we can recommend
from experience and which as of August 7th still had some rooms available
during SIGCOMM week, are:
- The Stanford Terrace Inn (+1 415 857-0333 or 1-800-729-3332). Located
on the edge of the Stanford campus, about a 30 minute walk from the conference
sites. (We recommend a car -- there will be parking for the conference for
a nominal sum). The corporate rate is $106 per night.
- The Hyatt Rickeys (+1 415 493 8000). Located about three miles south
of campus (car required). The corporate rate is $160 per night.
Tutorial registration covers tutorial materials, breakfast and lunch during
the tutorial day. (NOTE: if SIGCOMM broadcasts the tutorials over local
cable, remote sites will get tutorial materials but not meals -- sorry!).
All conference registration covers conference attendance, conference materials,
breakfast and lunch (except Friday) during conference days, and one ticket
to the conference social event.
Both tutorial attendees and conference attendees are invited to the conference
reception on Tuesday evening.
