%TOC% ---+++ Meeting planning Here are some last-minute details about next week's meeting. Please read on, even if you aren't coming: there is the opportunity to provide input into the meeting anyway. If you know in advance what you plan to offer to talk about, you can send me title and abstract and I'll put it on the web page; the first few talks may be chosen from this list, while I'm counting the votes. If you'd like to propose a discussion instead of a presentation, let me know that too; then participants can prepare for it. If you're a member and have proposals for observers for the next or subsequent meetings, please let me know in advance, so I can circulate information and we can have an informed discussion at this meeting. If you're a member and not coming, you can nominate a proxy for any votes at the MOM. Whether or not you're a member, you may have some input into the timing for Meeting #64. This is likely to be in Europe in the middle of 2008. It might be a Working Conference, rather than a normal working group meeting. If you know of any bad weeks in that period - let's say May to August - do let me know. (Meeting #63 is fixed at 10th to 14th Sep 2007 in Japan.) Our Chair has suggested banning laptops during presentations, except for the Secretary doing Secretarial business. You have been warned. Charles and Michel send the following local information, which I will add to the meeting's webpage http://web.comlab.ox.ac.uk/jeremy.gibbons/wg21/meeting62 ---+++ Venue The hotel sits on top of the Citadel of Namur (a large fortress). It is some distance away from downtown Namur, about a half-hour walk downhill (and more uphill). The Citadel is a public space and is open to walkers all year round, seven days a week. Joggers are welcome, good shoes are recommended. http://www.chateaudenamur.com/ http://www.citadelle.namur.be/ ---+++ Schedule We will start at 9:30 on Monday and finish around noon on Friday. See schedule on the webpage for further details. ---+++ Transportation The hotel is a 15' drive away from the Namur train station, and the train ride is about an hour and a half from the airport (via Brussels North). You can get detailed schedules at [[http://www.b-rail.be/main/E/index.php]] Look for NAMUR and BRUXELLES NAT AIRPORT. Bus route 3 connects the station and the hotel, every hour or so, until 7pm. Past that time, you will have to take a taxi. A detailed bus schedule is on the webpage. ---+++ Excursion On Wednesday afternoon, we will visit the Citadel's vast network of underground passages, and the Delforge perfume factory, established in Citadel buildings. Both sites are within walking distance of the hotel and the tour will take us halfway down to the old city center. Those who wish to do so can then go downtown for dinner and maybe some Christmas shopping (the Christmas Village starts this week-end). We will consider transportation options for the way back on Monday, depending on the number of interested parties. The hike uphill is a sportive but healthy alternative. The visits will cost 8 EUR/person, transportation not included. A registration list will be circulated on Monday. ---+++ Banquet The banquet will take place on Thursday night in a charming little downtown restaurant. Vegetarian or other dietary restrictions can be arranged. Transportation options will be decided on Monday. (Note that you therefore probably do not need dinner in the hotel on Thursday!) The banquet will cost 40 EUR/person, transportation not included. A registration list will be circulated on Monday. ---+++ Weather Belgium features a "temperate maritime" climate, which translates into a fair chance of rain and a risk of frost or snow in this season. Extended forecasts predict showers and high temperatures around 10 degrees C...
