The conference committee has negotiated discounts with several hotels near the University of Sydney, including some apartment-style hotels. We regret that we are not able to provide dorm-style accommodation, as this is our short winter break, so many students remain in their university accommodation and it is not let out to conferences. However, several backpacker hostels near the university provide cheap accommodation or you may be able to keep costs low by sharing an apartment with colleagues.

The following list are some accommodation options which all have conference rates and block bookings. Please ask for the SMB2018 rates when making the booking.

Anywhere Travel can also assist you with your accommodation and other associated travel needs. For any assistance with accommodation suggestions or bookings please contact Tania Khoury from Anywhere Travel:
