Symposium Venue

Parc 55 (a Hilton Hotel)
55 Cyril Magnin Street
San Francisco, CA 94102, USA

Parc 55, just off San Francisco’s famous Union Square, hosts Electronic Imaging Symposium 2021. Located less than 500 feet/2 minutes from the Powell Street BART (metro) Station, the hotel is ideally situated for exploring this hilly peninsula city. Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay, the city is known for its year-round fog, iconic Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, colorful Victorian houses, proximity to California’s Silicon Valley, eclectic dining establishments, and quality museums.

Location within Hotel: The Electronic Imaging Symposium will be located on Level Two, Three, and Four of the Parc 55. The symposium check-in/registration desk will be located on Level Four in the Cyril Magnin Foyer.

Lodging Information

Rate: single/double $229 + 16.45% room tax, including WIFI and all amenities found on the Parc 55 website. Reservations must be guaranteed with a valid credit card along with a first night’s deposit, refundable up to 3 days in advance of the conference start date. Hotel is 100% Non-Smoking. (Note: If even one of the nights you request in the system is unavailable, the system will say: No lodging matches your search criteria. Please change your search options at right and try again.” Unfortunately the site does not indicate which night is not available, so you have to adjust the dates until you get room options that will work. A separate reservation may be possible, but not at the conference rate. If you decide to make multiple bookings at different rates, contact the hotel to combine the two reservations into one reservation, with different rates.)

Rate Availability: 14 - 24 January 2021, based on availability. If you have a problem securing these days, email IS&T for help.

Reservations deadline: 7 January 2021.
