Convention Centre Rooms

I2SM 2018 is being held in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico. Registration, posters, talks, exhibition, coffee breaks, and buffet lunches are in the Casa Mazariegos Convention Centre. Oral sessions will take place in rooms on the ground and first floor. The inauguration and the plenary sessions will take place in the Bellas Artes auditorium, located one block from the Convention Centre.

Refreshment, Breaks & Lunches

Refreshments during coffee breaks will be available during the times allocated for oral presentations.

Buffet lunches will be served on the ground floor.

Wireless Internet Access

Please use WiFi sparingly and search for your sessions in the Program Volume, because bandwidth is finite and this will speed connection times for other delegates.

All delegates may access the wireless internet on all floors of the Convention Centre.

Registration & Help Desk Opening Times

Registration and Help Desk will be open from 15:00-19:00 on Sunday and from 8:30-16:30 from Monday to the end of the symposium.

Name Badges

Please be sure to wear your name badge at all times. Admission to the Convention Centre and all sessions will require identification by your badge.

Lost & Found

All items found in the Convention Centre should be brought to the Help Desk.

Insurance & Responsibility

Liability insurance is the responsibility of each delegate. Delegates should have their own medical coverage. The organizing committee assumes no responsibility for accidents, losses, damage, delays, or any modifications to the program arising from unforeseeable circumstances. It accepts no responsibility for travel or accommodation arrangements. The participant acknowledges that he/she has no right to lodge damage claims against ASISM, the organizing committee or Casa Mazariegos convention should the symposium be hindered or prevented by unexpected political or economic events or generally by incidental cases, or should the non-appearance of speakers or other reasons necessitate program changes.

Smoking Policy

For the comfort of delegates, all rooms used by the conference have been designed as non-smoking areas, including the stairwells of the Casa Mazariegos Convention Centre.
