2 1. Recommendations

Dear Dr Meier

We are looking forward to welcoming you to BioTech2008. To facilitate your stay, we will organise priority accommodation booking for speakers and chairpersons in one of the hotels recommended below. Please note that prices for single rooms range from 120 -160 CHF.

As Wädenswil has only a limited number of hotels, I would like to ask you to enter your name and the dates on which you require rooms on the Doodle page by 18 January 2008 at the latest: http://www.doodle.ch/participation.html?pollId=wb5qymrbe9ywrusy. The hotels we recommend closest to the university are: Hotel Engel http://www.engel-waedenswil.ch/hotel/ Hotel Schwan http://www.hotel-schwan.ch/ Hotel Meierhof http://www.hotel-schwan.ch/

Best regards Chris Meier, on behalf of the Organising Committee

Hi Chris

Almost all the hotels in the region are now fully booked ;-) but you could still try the Seehotel Meierhof and the Hotel Drei Könige (see http://www.biotech2008.ch/venue/accommodation/ for details). You can easily take the train to these hotels but, if you decide to rent a car, you could also try the Landgasthof Halbinsel Au.

The Hotel Schwan, where most of the speakers will be staying, is still available but only for more than one night. The Hotel Du Lac (www.dulac-waedenswil.ch/) is in Wädenswil itself and might still have space. However, we don't really recommend it as it seems rather overpriced.

If you need any more help, please contact Chris.

Best regards Chris

Dear Ms Meier

Thank you very much for all the information you have sent (including the bank transfer receipt). 

As requested, we have booked a single room for you in the Hotel Du Lac, Wädenswil (http://www.dulac-waedenswil.ch/) for 4 nights from 20 to 24 May 2008 at 130 CHF a night. We have also arranged check-in for you on 20 May from 09:00 (NB It is usually only after 14:00), the check-out is on 24 May before 14:00.



There is a direct train twice an hour (S2) from Zurich airport to Wädenswil. The journey takes about 35 minutes. The hotel is about a 1-minute walk from the Wädenswil railway station.



In order to plan your journey in advance (and check the cost of tickets), please see the Swiss Federal Railways online timetable at http://www.sbb.ch



The fee includes the aperitif and gala dinner on 22 May 2008 at 19:00. Although it was not entered on your registration form, I hope you will take this opportunity to meet the other participants. A number of them are booked into the same hotel as you, so you might like to join them to walk or take the bus back to the hotel after the dinner.



Should you have any unexpected problems with your check-in on arrival, please contact Professor Meier directly on her cell phone, ++41 796 111 111 for help.

Having looked at your university’s Internet pages, we would be interested to know more about the e-learning tool iLib as well your ‘online learning’ in general, and in particular about the following:   Which technology (Sun, Microsoft, etc.) is used for development and implementation? Who are the people responsible?

We would be grateful if you could inform us about these points at BioTech 2008 and bring any further relevant materials with you.

5 2. Reservations

Dear Professor Meier

We have provisionally booked a single room for you at the Hotel Drei Könige in Richterswil from Wednesday 20 May until Saturday 24 May (check out in the morning) at 105 CHF per night. Please let us know whether this arrangement is suitable.

Transport from your hotel to the conference venue will be arranged in due course.

Furthermore, we would be pleased to pick you up at the airport when you arrive: alternatively you can take the train to Richterswil and we will arrange for the hotel to pick you up at the station.

An updated version of the conference programme (and flyer) is now available at http://www.biotech2008.ch .

Kind regards Chris Meier

Dear Professor Meier

Dear Dr Meier

I am writing to inform you about a change of accommodation. As most speakers have chosen to stay in the Hotel Schwan in Horgen, we have booked a single room for you there from 20 to 24 May 2008 and cancelled your reservation at the youth hostel in Richterswil. If we do not hear from you to the contrary, we will assume that this meets with your agreement.

7 As a ‘special guest’, the organisers will cover your accommodation costs and the hotel has been duly informed of this. Please note that guests may check in after 14:00 and have to check out by 11:00 on the day of departure.

Kind regards Chris Meier
