                                        REGISTRATION FEES-ATTENDANCE

The attendance is limited to 70 participants including the speakers.
The registration fees are:

- Participant 2 000 FF
- Student 1 200 FF

These fees include the right of access to the conference room, the
proceedings, six meals (including the cold buffet on tuesday evening
and the dinner cruise party on "La Rance"), coffee breaks, bus shuttles.

Participants are in charge of their accomodation. There are limited
rooms available in the workshop center. Hotels will otherwise be proposed.

An optional night-tour is planned on Wednesday 16, to visit the "Mont Saint

Registration starts on Tuesday the 15th at 17:00 at the workshop center:

        Le Centre de La Briantais
        30 rue Maurice Nogues
        St MALO France
        Tel (33) 99 81 87 04

A cold buffet will be served at the center between 19:00 and 21:30.

                                                  HOW TO GET THERE

1) By train from Paris

A bus will pick up participants taking the following TGV at their
arrival in Rennes and take them to the workshop center, a one hour drive:

                                        TGV BUS
Paris/Montparnasse ---> Rennes ---> St Malo
15:20 17:25 18:30

For your return, a bus will take you to the following TGV in Rennes :

                  BUS TGV
St MALO ---> Rennes ---> Paris/Montparnasse
16:00 17:10 19:20

Important: reservations are required on French TGV which are usually
fully booked a few days in advance, we can help taking train tickets
and reservations on these two TGVs.

2) By plane via Jersey, the largest of the British Channel Islands

There are no direct flight from Paris or London to Dinard/St Malo, you
must come via Jersey.

- from Jersey, there is a daily, one hour, flight to Dinard airport,
(5 km from St Malo) which arrives at 19:05 in Dinard. Crossing by boat is
also possible and very handy.

- from Paris to Jersey, you can take the 16:40 flight and make your
connection to the Dinard flight.

- from London (Gatwick) to Jersey, there are several daily flights.

3) By plane and boat via Jersey

The Channel Islands are very close from St Malo and there are plenty
of daily large catamarans, almost one every hour, between Jersey and St
Malo, it is only a one hour cruise.
