Organisation: Universita' Ca' Foscari di Venezia
Location: Auditorium Santa Margherita (Universita' Ca' Foscari di Venezia), on the Campo Santa Margherita (capacity of up to 200 persons). The auditorium features the following equipment: -Several laptops, including laptops with Japanese configuration and Japanese font -White screen and beamer -Microphones -Overhead projector (OHP) Contrary to what we announced earlier, due to a recent regulation enforced by the university authorities, no coffee breaks will be allowed inside the building. We have therefore made an arrangement for five coffee breaks in a café, called Caffe Orange, on Campo Santa Margherita the square where the auditorium is located.

Note Lunch during the conference will not be pre-arranged. Everyone is invited to select the restaurant of his liking to have lunch from a list of recommended restaurants looking out onto the Square Santa Margherita. Sessions will end at about 12.30 h. in order to give everyone the opportunity to be at a restaurant before 13.00 h, which is rush time for lunch in Italy.
We have visited the hotels we have listed on the website: Falier, Al Sole, Sofitel, Carlton and Domus Ciliota, all of them attractive and fine. We hope that all prospective participants have found and booked suitable accommodation. Do not forget that September is a conference month and that Venice is a very popular destination. Be sure to book transport and accommodation in time. Looking forward to meeting you in Venice.
