Conference Venue and Hotel

The conference hotel (where Friday and Saturday events will be held) is the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach, a beautiful hotel overlooking Newport Bay, featuring gorgeous flowering gardens, strolling walkways, swimming pools (one even has a water slide!), and Jacuzzis. The hotel is the perfect location to promote interactions and networking among diverse international scholars across disciplines.


The hotel has a discounted room rate for conference delegates, starting at US$ 175 (+Taxes & Fees). Please note that there is only a limited number of rooms secured at this rate, and they are available on a first-come basis! Thus, book early. The rates are available from September 4th to 11th in case you would like to extend your stay or bring the family! Discounted rates are available here.


If you prefer a different location, there are plenty of other hotels near the Hyatt Regency and the University of California, Irvine, that offer budget accommodations starting around US$70 (+Taxes and Fees) per night and going up to literally whatever you are willing to spend.


The conference hotel is about 5 miles south of Orange County/John Wayne International Airport (SNA) and 45 miles south of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Directions, a map, information about shuttle services, parking at the hotel and other useful travel information to the conference hotel can be found here.


On Thursday, September 6th, conference events will be held at the Beckman Center of the National Academy of Sciences and Engineering, located on the UC Irvine campus. A map and directions to the Beckman Center can be found here.
