Last updated July 12, 2022. Dear IFAC MS/MoViC Registrants,
Thank you for registering the conference.  We would to like to remind you to make arrangements on the UCLA lodging options listed on the IFAC Papercept conference registration site as early as  when they are available before the deadline of July 28.  
Please note that we have secured significantly lower than the market rates for the UCLA lodging options, which are flat rates without additional taxes or service charges.   Breakfasts are also included in the stay of the Deneve Residence Hall, which is a 5 minute walk from the Conference Venue. On the other hand, the Luskin Hotel is a five-star hotel facing the Conference venue, which has a published daily rate of $499 plus tax.  Entering UCLA campus from outside hotels may be time consuming with the nearby subway station construction for the 2028 Summer Olympic Games.  Making the UCLA lodging selections will save you significant time and expenses.
If you are staying at UCLA Luskin Hotel and need to stay extra days within three days before or after the September 6 chick-in and September 9 check-out window, the Luskin Hotel may honor the same Conference daily rate if rooms are available.  Please inquire with the on-site reservations team at 855-522-8252 or email them at about availability and if confirmed/reserved we will open special tickets for the purchase on the IFAC Papercept conference registration site.
