Dear members,

You are kindly invited to attend the next THEIERE meeting which will take place in Lappeenranta, Finland, from the 8th to 9th March 2003 ( Saturday and Sunday).


Address of the venue:

Meetings will be held at Lappeenranta University of Technology Phone: +358-5-621 6800.

The meeting will be hosted by our colleague Antti Luukko from Lappeenranta University of Technology.

Here are some recent piece of Information from Antti:

The meeting will take place in University Campus area in Skinnarilanhovi. It is a wooden cottage some 300 meters from the main entrance of the University. I have reserved 40 single rooms in the Hotel Cumulus. The price is 70 Euro/night.

It is very easy to come from the hotel to the University (Yliopisto in Finnish). The bus stop is just on the opposite side of the street at the hotel. Both bus lines 5 and 6 have the end stop at University main entrance. The distance is about 6 km. The timetable for the buses Friday morning from the Centre:

8.35 (5); 8.40 (6); 8.50 (6); 9.10 (5); 9,20 (6).
The driver sells bus tickets (2,50 Euro). The price of Taxi is approx. 15 Euro.

From the railway station and from the airport you can take taxi to the hotel. The distances are under 2 km. Anyway I'll try to have the minibus of the University to help you to the hotel.
