Dear Participant:

we would like to draw your attention on the updated web page of the Workshop, with Important Local Information where the following information can be found:

Arriving in Venice. You will find information on how to reach Venice from the Airport, and our venue (S Servolo Island) from Venice.

Accomodation. If your accomodation in Venice is one of the four arranged by the organization of the workshop you will be able to retrive the map and directions how to reach your hotel.

Registration and Welcome Reception. You will find address and map of the site of the Welcome Reception that will take place on Tuesday, October 23, from 18:00 to 20:00. We recommend everybody to participate, as during the reception the registration desk will be open. Worshop folders will be distributed containing a four-day ticket valid on all vaporettos (water-busses), and will be used in the following days to reach the Workshop venue. During the reception additional logistic information will be given.

Registration Fee. We remind all participants that the registration fee (500,000 Lit) will be payable only cash at the conference desk (sorry, no credit cards) at the beginning of the Workshop, on October 24. No fees will be collected at Registration, during the Welcome Reception. The fee will also cover lunches on the island of S. Servolo, the 4-day ticket for the vaporettos, and a copy of the conference proceedings.

Facilities available during the meeting. List of aids for oral and poster presentation and internet/e-mail access during the meeting.

Scientific Programme. You will also find the current, virtually final version of the scientific programme.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Venice,

Ralf Bender and Alvio Renzini
