Terms and Conditions of Hotel Registration and Payment


 Organized Hotel accommodations for VLDB2003 are managed by DER Deutsches Reisebüro, Berlin. DER is one of Germany`s largest travel agencies. “Special Offers” and “Other Hotels” have to be reserved on your own.


 DER has reserved a block of hotel rooms at considerably reduced rates. All hotels are near to subway or bus lines which will take you easily to the venue.


 Attention!!: The stated hotel prices reflect agreements that were put into place long before the start of the conference. They might NOT reflect the actual price situation at the time of the conference and might be higher than the actual prices you might be charged when contacting the hotels directly. Thus we highly recommend to compare prices; the following links provide you some online booking alternatives, including some hotels which you might want to contact directly (Special Offers and Other Hotels). The organizers do not take over any responsibilities for the quality and reliability of any of the hotels nor for the online booking facilities.
