    Forteenth Annual Conference

    We enclose details about accommodation, travel and the schedule for IATL 14, to be held be held in Ben Gurion University, Beer Sheva, on June 8-9 1998. We hope you will be able to join us.

    Accommodation: people wishing to book accommodation should contact Ariel Cohen ( ASAP.

    There are three main options:

    * BeerSheva Hilton: single 95$, double 115$, suite 220$ (all prices per night and include breakfast, the prices do not include 17% VAT).

    * Neot Midbar Hotel: single 56$, double 74$, triple 104$, lunch 13$, dinner 22$ (at the Red Sand Grill restaurant).

    * BGU dorms: shared apartment: 179 NIS(approx 50$) for one night, or 330 NIS (= 93$ approx) for up to a week. Own apartment (suitable for a couple): 265 NIS for one night, or 549 NIS for up to a week.

    Travel: BeerSheva is well connected to both TelAviv and Jerusalem by fast, air conditioned Egged buses; ask driver for Ben Gurion University stop. Once you're safely off the bus, cross the road, main entrance becomes visible immediately.

    Drivers: Turn left to Ben Gurion Ave., which is the street running south of the university and north of a big hospital. Take the second left turn (a turn without a traffic light; if you hit a light, you have driven too far). You will see two gates with barriers; pick the one on the left - this is the visitors (paid) parking.
