 IMPORTANT Information Regarding NACCL9
The Ninth North American Conference on Chinese Linguistics
 University of Victoria, Canada
 May 2-4, 1997
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 that
 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
2) Our web page
 is ready with links to housing, bus, ferry, car rental,
 Victoria and Vancouver Island tourism and more. You can also download
 the Registration Form and the Housing Reservation Form from there.
 There is an error in the Housing Reservation form that is sent out to
 participants: should be
3) On-campus housing as you see in the Housing Reservation Form is most
 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 format
 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.

Message 2: GALA '97 Registration

***********************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 not
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 that
there are still places available.
