 NELS 23
 OCTOBER 16-18, 1992
 UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA
 PRE-REGISTRATION PACKET

To avoid potentially longer lines at the table for new registrants, you
may pre-register for NELS 23 by sending the Registration Form below
to the address indicated. Please allow at least 10 days for mail
delivery to Ottawa.

1. HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS
The NELS 23 Organizing Committee has signed a contract with the Holiday
Inn located at the Ottawa Market Square (350 Dalhousie St.) at a special
flat rate of $69.00 (Canadian) per night, plus tax (maximum occupancy:
4 persons) for the evening preceding the conference (October 15), as well
as the duration of the meeting itself (October 16-18). This hotel is
conveniently located within walking distance to the University of Ottawa
and it is also very close to restaurants and shops. The number of rooms
reserved is limited and the final cut-off for reservations is September
25, 1992. To make your reservation please call Holiday Inn at (613) 236-
0201, mentioning the NELS 23 convention code.

There are two ways to get from the airport to the Holiday Inn. First, you
can take a taxi. (Call Blue Line Taxi Co. at (613) 238-1111 or A-1 Taxi
at (613) 746-1616.) Fares are about $25.00 and the trip takes
approximately 20 minutes. Alternatively, you may take the Airport Shuttle
which runs every half hour from the airport and costs $9.00 per person.
Unfortunately, the shuttle does not stop at the Holiday Inn, but rather,
two and a half blocks directly south of it. You get off at the stop
for Les Suites Hotel and walk straight down Dalhousie Street.

To walk from the Holiday Inn to the conference hall on 125 University
street takes about 10 minutes. Exit the hotel on Dalhousie Street, turn
right on Dalhousie and walk down it until you reach Rideau Street (one
block). Make a left on Rideau Street and walk down it until you reach
Cumberland Street (two blocks). Make a right on Cumberland and walk
straight down it into the University of Ottawa until you reach University
street (5 blocks). Make a right onto University, which wraps around the
Morisset Library and the Uni-Centre, eventually reaching Montpetit Hall,
which is 125 University. The conference hall is called the De Celles
Amphitheatre and the room number is 202.

2. PARKING ON CAMPUS
Parking is free on the University of Ottawa campus on weekends. The
parking lots closest to the conference hall are N and X located at the
intersection of University Street and Jean-Jacques Lussier Street. Please
note, however, that on Thursday and Friday you will have to get a permit
at Traffic Services located on 100 Thomas More and you will have to use
the underground lot next to Traffic Services. Permits cost $9.00 per day.
For additional info call the Traffic Office at (613) 564-3954.

3. COPYING/FAX SERVICES
There are two copy centers located on Rideau Street, which you will be
walking by on your way to campus from the Holiday Inn. These are Rapid
Copy and Zippy Print. The best quality one is Zippy Print located at 227
Rideau Street. Its telephone number is (613) 236-0340 and its FAX number
is (613) 230-1433. Unfortunately, the commercial services are generally
closed on the weekend. Alternatively, you can use the xeroxing services
available on the main floor of the campus library located in Morisset
Hall at 65 University Street. The campus facility is open on the weekend,
but to use it, you will have to buy a campus copy card. (Ask at the
check-out desk of the library.)

4. PUBLISHER'S EXHIBITS
Publishers will be displaying across from the conference hall in room 207

5. NELS 23 PARTY
The NELS 23 party will take place on Saturday October 17 at 8:00 pm in
the Blue Room located at 110 University Street. Doors open at 8:00 pm
and the band starts at 9:00 pm. Cash bar.
