Editor for this issue: Martin Jacobsen <martylinguistlist.org>


Please keep your conference announcement as short as you can; LINGUIST will not post conference announcements which in our opinion are excessively long. Also, please remember that, once posted, your announcement will be permanently available at our website: http://www.linguistlist.org/issues/indices/Confs1997r.html For this reason, we discourage multiple submissions of the same conference announcement. Thank you for your cooperation.

			HOW TO GET TO BERGAMO: 

Milano Linate and Milano Malpensa are the closest International
airports. Bergamo is about 30 miles away from Milan.

A taxi from Linate to Bergamo would cost approximately 80$. A taxi
from Malpensa would cost approximately 120$.



- If you arrive at MILANO LINATE take the bus to "Milano Centrale"
Station; the bus leaves every 20 minutes and takes 15 minutes to
arrive at the station.



- If you arrive at MILANO MALPENSA take the bus to "Milano Centrale"
Station; the bus leaves every half an hour and takes almost an hour
to arrive at the station.



- From MILANO CENTRALE there are some trains to Bergamo. Otherwise,
take the Metro from Centrale to Milano Porta Garibaldi Station (two
stops on the Green line); here you find more trains to Bergamo. Some
trains go directly from Milan to Bergamo, others stop in Carnate
Usmate, where you have to get a connection train to Bergamo: both
ways take the same time (50 minutes) and cost the same. Just take
the first train leaving either to Carnate or to Bergamo.



- From VENICE (or PADUA): take a train going toward Milan and get off
in Brescia. Take the first train to Bergamo (50 minutes).



PLEASE NOTICE THAT THERE ARE NO TRAINS DURING THE NIGHT (AFTER 11PM)!

More detailed information about trains can be found at the WWW of
Ferrovie dello Stato (Italian Railways), where train schedule,
bookings, etc.. are also available. The address is:

		http://www.fs-on-line.com/


- There is a small airport in Bergamo: Orio al Serio. Check at your
travel agency whether there are connecting flights which might be
useful to you.



- ONCE IN BERGAMO: the conference site is in BERGAMO ALTA (the ancient
town). Buy a bus ticket (about $1), take the bus number 1 to the
funicolare and then with the same ticket you can take the funicular to
the top.
