CIDR 2020 will be held from Sunday, January 12, 2020, to Wednesday, January 15, 2020, in the Mövenpick Hotel Amsterdam City Centre, Piet Heinkade 11, 1019 BR Amsterdam, Netherlands.

To register for CIDR 2020 and to book your room at the Mövenpick Hotel, please use this link.

NOTE: you must use the above link to register and to reserve a room, i.e., do not contact the Mövenpick Hotel directly to book your room.

Registration for CIDR 2020 includes attendance to the conference, 3 nights of accommodation in the Mövenpick Hotel, as well as all meals during the conference (from dinner on Sunday til lunch on Wednesday).

The first week of registration will be open only for paper (co-)authors.

Papers at CIDR are expected to be presented by an experienced author; the form will ask to indicate which paper(s) are authored plus speaker information.

Students have a reduced price, as indicated in the form (i.e., EUR 100.- lower).

At this time, partial day registration and off-site registration are not options. You must register for all three days of the conference. If you really need to, you can check-in after Sunday January 12 or check-out before Wednesday January 15, however, the total registration fee remains the same.

Participants may also arrive up to 3 nights before the conference or stay up to 3 nights afterward and will be charged the Mövenpick guest rate we negotiated for the conference. That rate includes accommodation, taxes and breakfast, but no other meals. These optional extra days can be specified in the registration form.

The registration offers the choice of three room types: (1) single room (one attendee), (2) double room (one attendee and one non-attending guest/companion), (3) shared room (two attendees sharing a room). All fees are per attendee. Fees for double room include accommodation and breakfast, only, for one guest/companion per room/attendee. Guest/companions cannot take part in any conference activities. For shared rooms, please specify your roommate during the registation process.

The registation allows you to specify dietary restrictions (if any). We'll forward this information to the hotel to adjust their meals accordingly as far as possible.

You may cancel your registration for a full refund (minus a EUR 100.- fee) before December 12. After that date, no refunds will be made.

This event for the community of local data scientists and academics, will be free to attend; also for CIDR attendees. We thought that maybe this is interesting to know for your planning. As mentioned, it is possible to stay extra nights in the hotel.
