1) First, a reminder: The deadline for Early Registration is this
**COMING SUNDAY (March 31)**.
Notice that the university does not open on Saturday and Sundays, so
you won't be able to find anyone during these two days should you
have any questions, etc.
The March 31 deadline will be very STRICTLY observed due to the fact tha
we have to turn the final program in for printing very shortly after.
Therefore, if you are presenting a paper, you MUST register by then,
or your presentation will be canceled.
Note that you can register by sending in your Master-Card or Visa
# by contacting Pat Mcguire at 250-721-8746 (Phone) or 250-721-8774 (fax), or Nieves at

3) On-campus housing as you see in the Housing Reservation Form is mos
suitable for people with a limited budget. The rooms do not contain
private bathrooms. Rather, bathrooms are centrally located (i.e. shared).
Anyone wishing to have better accommodation should contact UVic
Housing directly at 250-721-8395 (Phone), 250-721-8930(fax) or (email).
4) We will publish the conference proceedings after the conference, so
bear that in mind when you come to present your paper. The forma
for the papers in the proceedings will be distributed at the conference.
5) The bus which links Vancouver Airport with Downtown Victoria (via a
ferry) is called Pacific Coach Line (Phone: 1-800-661-1725). However, from
the Vancouver Airport, you need to take firstly a Delta Hotel shuttle bus
which leaves every 15 minutes. The shuttle bus will take you to the Delta
Hotel from which you can take a PCL bus. PCL bus goes every 2 hour
between 6:00am to 8:00pm.


***********************IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT****************************

We are limited by the fire regulations of the City Chambers to some 200
people in the Main Council Chamber, where the plenary talks will be held.
Accordingly we are restricting registration numbers to 200.

This constraint means that some people who wish to attend GALA '97 may no
be able to attend if they leave registration until too late. We have been
trying to deal with registrations fairly on a first-come, first-served
basis. Our policy is that we are reserving one place at the conference per
oral presentation or per poster presentation. Because we have some 120
presentations in all, the number of non-reserved places is quite limited.
We have now almost reached the limit, although there may be a few more
places resulting from last-minute cancellations. We therefore anticipate
that it will be difficult to register on the day of the conference, and we
advise participants not to make travel arrangements to come to Edinburgh
if they have not pre-registered, or if they have not checked with us tha
there are still places available.
