HOTELS AND SHORT TERM RENTALS

Please note that hotel rates typically increase as the date to IMMERSION 2015 approaches. Book your hotel as far in advance as possible for the best rates.

There is no official hotel for IMMERSION 2015, allowing attendees to select accomodations that best fit their personal intersets and budget. A list of recommended hotels recommended by Paris-Sorbonne University is available here. You will notice that this online link is dated 2006, as the list of hotels for IMMERSION 2015 are the same for the 2006 conference.

Hotels from the above list with special Sorbonne rates are the the 2 hotels closest to the Sorbonne, Mercure (***) and Trois Colleges (**). As these 2 hotels have special rates for university guests simply let them know that you are attending the IMMERSION 2015 conference at Sorbonne when you book your stay.


Short-term rentals: Depending on how long you plan visit there are a number of short-term rentals that often cost less than hotels. Both http://airbnb.com and http://vrbo.com offer short-term rentals.


About the Immersive Education Initiative

The Immersive Education Initiative is a non-profit international collaboration of educational institutions, research institutes, museums, consortia and companies. The Initiative was established in 2005 with the mission to define and develop standards, best practices, technology platforms, training and education programs, and communities of support for virtual worlds, virtual reality, augmented and mixed reality, simulations, game-based learning and training systems, and fully immersive environments such as caves and domes.

Thousands of faculty, researchers, staff and administrators are members of the Immersive Education Initiative, who together service millions of academic and corporate learners worldwide.

Chapters support the rapid and continued growth of Immersive Education throughout the world, and constitute the geographically distributed structure of the organization through which regional and local members are supported and enriched. Chapters organize officially sanctioned Summits, Days, workshops, collaborations, seminars, lectures, forums, meetings, public service events and activities, technical groups, technical work items, research, and related activities.
