Twentieth International Conference
February 22–26, 2016
Accra Beach Hotel & Spa

The conference takes place at the Accra Beach Hotel & Spa. We have negotiated special rates with the conference hotel.

Single occupancy (with breakfast)US$233.00 per night
Double occupancy (with breakfast)US$260.00 per night

Please note that these rates include all taxes. Triple occupancy is available for an additional charge of US$35.00 per night, but does not include breakfast for the third person. Children under 12 accompanied by an adult stay free of charge.

These rates are run-of-house, which means that the room category is determined by availability at the time of check-in. If you want to guarantee a particular room category, we have also negotiated special (higher) rates for that. Please contact the General Chair.

We have blocked 60 rooms for conference attendees that will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional rooms are on a space-available basis. You are strongly encouraged to make your reservation no later than January 24, 2016 in order to ensure the rate and availability; after the cutoff date any rooms in the block that have not been reserved will be released by the hotel for sale to other guests, and the hotel is expected to be fully booked.

To make your reservation, call +1 (246) 435-8920 extension 5599 or email Please quote group code / reference # 299583 (and/or "Cryptography") in order to get the special rate. You can also fax your reservation to +1 (246) 435-6794.

UPDATE: online reservation for the group is now available. CLICK HERE. Note that the price offered online does not include taxes; this is added later in the booking process. The island view room offered online is actually run-of-house rather than a specific category; the ocean view room offered online is for those who want to guarantee the higher category. It seems that the online system sometimes indicates no availability on some dates even when there are still rooms available; try phoning the hotel instead if you get that indication.

UPDATE: the group block has been fully utilized but reservations at the group rate are still possible on a space-available basis.

UPDATE: the hotel is now fully booked on at least some of the conference dates. Some nearby hotels that you might check for availability include the Coral Mist Beach Hotel, the Blue Orchids Beach Hotel, and (a little farther away) the Coral Sands Beach Resort and the Courtyard by Marriott.
