CSCW 2013 will be held in San Antonio, the fastest growing city in the United States from 2000-2010, and currently the 7th most populous city in the U.S. (by city limits). San Antonio has a terrific mix of traditional southwest American culture and contemporary urban atmosphere. Best known for the Alamo historical landmark, San Antonio also is home to a number of Spanish missions and the river walk, a 7 mile stretch of river lined with shops, bars, and restaurants that sits below street level and winds its way through downtown San Antonio. Historically, the average high temperature during the conference time period is 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

The conference will be held in the Hyatt on the river walk. The hotel has recently been renovated, has terrific rooms and conference facilities, and is a short walk to a number of restaurants. All conference activities, including the main conference reception will be held at or very near the hotel. Thus while there are other hotels nearby, staying at the hotel will be most convenient. You can reserve a room at the special conference attendee rate of $169 per night by clicking the 'Hotel Reservation' link on this page. This rate includes free in-room internet access and all conference attendees will receive a 25% discount at the hotel restaurant (which is quite good) and bar.
