Accommodation during the conference

Christchurch offers a wide range of accommodation: from luxury hotels to less expensive motels, budget university hostels, and backpacker hostels.

The conference venue hotel is the Chateau on the Park. It is located just minutes away from Hagley Park, the Christchurch Botanic Gardens and the Westfield Shopping Centre in Riccarton Rd.

Cheaper, but quite comfortable, accommodation is offered by a number of motels, located within a few blocks from the conference venue.

The Sonoda Apartments are in a small, friendly, self-catered Hall of Residence for students of the University of Canterbury, offering comfortable and affordable rooms for individual guests. They are situated 3.2km from the conference venue. There are city buses between these two locations.
