This email account was created to help students coming to Stresa for
the XXVII Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society share
accomodation costs for double rooms in Stresa. Here is how it works:
If you are coming to CogSci05, but you want to save money on
accomodation, then you email this address: students.cogsci05@....
Your email should say 'looking for accomodation' in the subject line
and contain some of the following information in the body of the email:
1. Name*, M/F, university*
2. Which nights you will stay in Stresa*
3. A brief statement of your Cognitive Science interests and/or background
4. Any requests about your roomate (e.g. non-smoker, female preferred
* Information must be included
The purpose of your email is to find someone to share with you the
cost of a double room. By sharing rooms we each save about half the
accomodation costs per night.
Once you place your Ad, we will email you the password to the email
account and you can log on to see if there are other people who placed

If you find someone, or if someone finds you, you can contact her/him
and see if s/he is willing to make a reservation in a hotel in Stresa
with you for a double room. Once you have finalised your accomodation,
please delete your original emails so that other people will contact
only other people who are still looking.
This is an unmoderated service which relies on students to organise
all aspects of the accomodation process themselves. This includes
contacting hotels, making bookings, organising payments etc... Please
do NOT burden the conference organisers about this service.
If you have any further questions, you may email them to:
