PSB '96 Conference Site

Picture of the hotel and grounds

PSB '96 will be held at one of the best hotels in the world, the Ritz Carlton Mauna Lani, on the Big Island of Hawaii. Ritz Carlton won the prestigeous Malcom Baldridge National Prize for Quality in 1992.


The Ritz has beautiful guestrooms, and a picture of a typical one is below. The hotel has offered PSB registrants a deeply discounted rate: $130 per day for two adults, plus tax (minor children are free). We recommend you make your hotel reservations as soon as possible, and no later than October 2. Make your reservations by calling the hotel directly. The toll-free number within the USA is (800)845-9905. Outside of the US, call +1(808)885-2000 or fax +1(808)885-1064. An on-line hotel registration form is also available.

Subject to room availability, the special PSB discount rate is good for up to three days preceeding and three days following the conference.

For attendees on a tight budget, we will help arrange for roommates to split the cost of a room. Please contact the conference coordinator at for help finding a roommate.

Conference Facilities

The Ritz has excellent conference facilities. We will be using the main amphitheater and the Promenade Ballrooms for meeting and demo sessions. Thanks to the generousity of Silicon Graphics and our other sponsors, we will have workstations and network connections available for demos and other purposes.
