The first day of the meeting will be held in the Izrael Poznański's Palace, one of the most spectacular examples of the prosperity of the Lodz “steam engine” industrial era. Izrael Poznański's Palace (http://uk.turystyka.uml.samozycie.pl/index.php?str=392&id=158) The rest of the Conference sessions will take place in the Assembly Hall of the Training and Conference Centre of the University of Lodz (http://www.csk.uni.lodz.pl/eng/) at 16/18 Kopcinskiego Street in the city centre. The Conference Centre is also providing one of the three accommodation options recommended by organizers. The prices of rooms for the conference participants will be around 25 – 30 Euro per person. For participants expecting higher standards of accommodation we recommend the QUBUS*** Hotel (hotel info: http://www.qubushotel.com/) or the Campanile** Hotel (hotel info: http://www.campanile.com.pl/) are recommended. Prices for rooms for the conference participants will be around 80 – 100 Euro and 50 - 75 Euro for QUBUS*** Hotel and Campanile** Hotel respectively. Both hotels are placed in the city center and close to the high street of Lodz called Piotrkowska. It takes approximately 10 minutes by taxi to get to the Conference Centre from Campanile Hotel and about 15 minutes from QUBUS Hotel. City tram is an option, but is a little bit more time consuming. The Training and Conference Centre of the University of Lodz and Campanile** Hotel offers accommodation discount for conference participants. The final discount level will be related to the final number of reservations. Due to the discount opportunity the organisers strongly recommend that the participants fill in the attached Registration Form as soon as possible and send it back to the Conference Coordinator (e-mail: edytkied@biol.uni.lodz.pl) by 29 February 2008. The participant’s contact data will be forwarded to the chosen location for booking procedures. Registration Registration will take place in the Izrael Poznański's Palace on Monday, 19 May 2008 from 9.00 until 16.00 hours. Details on how to get from the occupied hotel to the Conference Opening Session and registration place will be given in the joining instructions which will be sent out at the end of April. From Tuesday morning registration will have moved to the Training and Conference Centre of the University of Lodz to the front of the entrance to the lecture theatre. Registration will be open from 08.30 each morning and will close when the lectures are finished each day.

Lodz has its own airport (http://www.airport.lodz.pl) but the organisers strongly recommend to check the Warsaw Okecie Airport (http://www.lotnisko-chopina.pl/?lang=en) as well as it has more international connections. Please note that arriving at Warsaw Airport you will need to take a “Polski Express” coach from a stop directly in front of the airport arrivals terminal (http://www.polskiexpress.pl/rozklad_jazdy.html#wwa_ldz_krk) or to get to the Central train station called Dworzec Centralny (http://rozklad.pkp.pl/bin/query.exe/en?).
