La Jolla Weather Forecast


The conference reserved a block of rooms at the

Sheraton La Jolla
3299 Holiday Court
La Jolla, CA 92037
Direct telephone: 858-453-5500

Our hotel block is now fully booked. The hotel will offer the best available rate as long as rooms are available. We encourage you to still consider staying at the Sheraton, as we will offer a free shuttle on Wednesday evening for the Reception, Poster Session, and Resource Expo.

Book your room on the Sheraton La Jolla reservations page or toll-free: 866-716-8134. Another option is to call the hotel reservations desk directly (858-453-5500), explain that you will be visiting UC San Diego, and ask for the university room rate. They may give it to you, if available. Other local hotels (listed below) may also offer the university rate if called directly.

The hotel is a pleasant 30-minute walk from the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), where the majority of the conference will be held. If you prefer to drive, pay parking is located next to the SDSC (details below). Self Parking at the hotel is $5 for 0-6 hours; $15 for 6-24 hours.

On Wednesday evening before and after the Reception, Poster Session, and Resource Expo, we will be offering a shuttle service between the Reception venue (a short walk from the main conference venue at SDSC) and the Sheraton La Jolla.

Other local hotels do not offer a conference rate, but some are slightly closer to SDSC. Here are a few:
