 NOTES TO OVERSEAS PARTICIPANTS
		==============================
FROM AIRPORT TO HOTEL
=====================
Welcome to Hong Kong!
Everywhere in Hong Kong are easily accessible. Taxi is the easiest
way of getting around. They are red with silver tops and the fares on
Hong Kong and Kowloon are:
	Flagfall			HK$13.00
	Per additional 200 metres	HK$1.10
	Waiting/time per minute		HK$1.10
 Baggage per piece HK$5.00
 Cross harbour tunnel toll HK$10.00
Under normal traffic condition, to get to a place on the Kowloon side
(the Airport is also located on the Kowloon side) by taxi will cost you
less than HK$120, while for destinations on Hong Kong Island it will cost
you more.
Many taxi drivers do not speak much English. Here are some useful tips:
(1) You are advised to pay the taxi meter fare in HONG KONG DOLLARS (HK$).
	Banks and moneychangers can be easily found at the airport. At
	the time of writing, the exchange rate of US$ to HK$ is 1 to
	7.736 (for reference only). Remember to get some HK$100
	notes (red in color) to pay the taxi fare.
(2)	To avoid misunderstandings, please get the hotel staff to write
	down your destination (name and address of the hotel) in Chinese
 characters. Participants who book their accommodation through
 the Conference Secretariat will receive such information by fax.
 It will be very useful if you can show the taxi driver your destination
	in Chinese characters.
FROM HOTEL TO THE CAMPUS
========================
The Conference will be held at the Council Chamber of the City University
of Hong Kong on 27-28 December 1995. The full address of the Conference
venue is given below:
	Council Chamber, Council Suite
	5/F, Cheng Yick-chi Building (please take lift no. 12)
	City University of Hong Kong
 Tat Chee Avenue
	Kowloon Tong
	Kowloon
You can go to our Campus by taxi or by taking a train at the nearest
Mass-Transit-Railway Station (MTR). The Campus is just a few minutes
walk from the MTR station at Kowloon Tong. Tickets for single
journeys can be purchased from the ticketing machines which take
HK$10, $5, $2, $1 and 50 cent coins. Fares range from $4 to $11.
Take MTR to the Kowloon Tong Station (a stop on the main line running
from Yaumatei to Quarry Bay). Choose Exit C "City University of Hong
Kong". Go up 2 escalators and follow the direction signs to Tat Chee
Avenue. Then enter the subway on your right and walk through it.
Follow direction signs put up by City University at the end of the
subway and turn right, walking through a Chinese garden in our campus
will soon lead you to the Cheng Yick-chi Building. Take lift no. 12 to
5/F (Council Suite). The Council Chamber will be on your left at 5/F.

Map of CityU
============
A brief map of the CityU has been put on the WEB site at
http://ctwww/cityu.edu.hk/ctl/paclic10/PACLIC10.html. Participants
may refer to this web site for more details. If you need to get a
copy of our campus map by fax, please send a message to our e-mail
address rlpacliccityu.edu.hk.

Banquet Registration
====================
As mentioned in our earlier message, there will be an optional banquet
to be held on 27th December evening. The charge will not exceed US$30
per head and will be collected on the 1st day of the Conference. A
firm counting of the no. of participants joining the banquet will be
required latest by DECEMBER 19, 1995. If you have not yet sent a
reply to us, please do so by either e-mail or fax on or before the
deadline.

Emergency
=========
The two days before the Conference, December 25 (Christmas) and 26
(Boxing Day) are public holidays in Hong Kong. Offices are normally
closed on these holidays. However, in case of emergeny, you can call
me at telephone no. 27888794 (leave voice message if I'm not
there). (In the last resort, talk to a policeman.)

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

Organizing Committee of PACLIC10
