 June 1, 1996

 July 1-6, 1996
 Main Building, Sookmyung Women's University, Seoul, Korea

Dear Colleague,
We are sorry that we have not been able to send you earlier the full
information for SICOGG 96. This is our final circular before the
Conference starts on July 1, 1996.

 During the conference, for the 7 nights June 30 July 6,
participants who need accommodation will be urged to stay at Hoam
Faculty House, just next to Seoul National University. This is the
place where all invited speakers will stay, too. Since only a limited
number of rooms could be reserved, please let us know (by Email or Fax
if available) how many nights do you want to stay there, as soon as
you can. We will reserve the rooms for you. Meals including Breakfast
can be purchased at the cafeteria/restaurant inside the central
building. Rooms now available are all airconditioned and Korean
Ondol-style. Hoam Faculty House is about one hour drive from Kimpo
International Airport, and a 30 minute drive to Conference site,
Sookmyung Women's University under normal traffic conditions. The
information for convenient transportations from the accommodation
place to conference site, including the city map, will be available at
the front desk upon your arrival. Followings are the current discount
rates for Hoam Faculty House.
 Single Room or Double Room 36,000 Won (US$ 45) per night

(At most 2 person for one room: $23 for each, if you share the room
with other)

Accommodations in Seoul are costly. Beside Hoam Faculty House,
followings are hotels which are close to (or not very far from)
Sookmyung Women's University. For reservations on these hotels, we
leave it to individual participants to make their own arrangements.
Hotel Rainbow: 15 minute walk to SWU (very close to SWU), quality
somewhat worse than Hoam
 Single or Double Room US$ 55-60 (bed or ondol, $30 for each if you
 Call for reservation: +822-792-9993 6(Phone) -792-9997(Fax)

Hotel Kaya: 15 minute walk to SWU (very close to SWU), quality
somewhat worse than Hoam
Single or Double Room US$ 55-60 (bed or ondol, $30 for each if you
 Call for reservation: +822-798-5101 10(Phone) -798-5900(Fax)
Hamilton Hotel: 15 minute drive to SWU, quality somewhat better than
 Single or Double Room US$ 110 (bed only, $55 for each if you share)
 Call for reservation: +822-794-0171 9(Phone) -795-0457(Fax)
Capital Hotel: 15 minute drive to SWU, quality better than Hoam and
 Single or Double Room US$ 210 (bed only, $105 for each if you share)
 Call for reservation: +822-792-1122(Phone) -796-0918(Fax)

In sum, you will save some money and can stay with some comfort if you
choose Hoam Faculty House. Hotel Rainbow and Kaya have advantages in
that they are very close to the conference site, i.e. walking distance
to SWU. Hamilton and Capital Hotel, on the other hand, are in better
quality, but they are relatively expensive.

The conference period is the hottest (around 28-30 degrees Centigrade)
of the year. There may be some irregular showers. Participants are
advised to wear light and comfortable--typical summer--clothing for
both daytime and night-time.

The basic unit of Korean currency is the Won. The current exchange
rate for US$ 1.00 is about 800 Won. Due to fluctuation, participants
are advised to check the current exchange rates at the time of the
Conference. Currency exchange services are available at a bank in the
Kimpo International Airport, and other banks in the city.


All the events including lectures, forum, paper presentations will
take place at Main Building, Sookmyung Women's University, Seoul. If
you are not supposed to stay at Hoam Faculty House, following
information will be useful to get to the conference place. Local city
buses: take #57, #58, get off at Sookmyung stop. Subways: take #1,
get off at Namyoung stop. Or take #4 line, get off at Sooktaeipku
'Sookmyung Women's University Entrance' stop. From the Airport: take
Limousine, get off at Seoul City Hall. And take taxi to SWU. From the
Hoam Faculty House, the relevant information will wait for you at the
front desk upon your arrival. (We are currently seeking for the most
convenient and economical way for you to get to SWU from HFH.)


Participants will meet together, having a drink and enjoying Korean
foods, in the Wednesday evening on July 3, hosted by the President of
SWU. The reception place will be SWU, the conference place.

As you know, the conference proceedings will be published right after
the conference, no later than July 31. We are going to collect paper
manuscripts and disks during the conference. Please bring them to
Seoul. Your paper will be published as presented at the
conference. We are sorry, but your paper will not be accepted after
the conference. The deadline is July 6, 1996.

Just bring one hard copy of the handout. We will make the relevant
numbers of copies for your presentation.

date/time and flight as well as your departure date/time and flight,
