In the Conference Office there will be a desk of the Europaeisches
Reisebuero, which will on request confirm or book flights, reserve
seat tickets for trains, order tickets for cultural events, and
help you in other touristic matters.


On Thursday, 11 April, we will have a special section for
demonstrations. They can be prepared on Wednesday. The final
programme for this section will be distributed during the conference.
Participants who are still interested in giving a demonstration
are welcome to contact Wolfgang Menzel (same address) to be included
in the programme and to discuss further details. During the
conference we will have a book exhibition where several publishing
houses and book sellers will show their specific offer and you will
have the possibility of ordering.


Monday, 8 April 1991, from 15.00: Get-together Reception (Kongresshalle)
Thursday, 11 April 1991, 19.00: Banquet ("Schultheiss in der Hasenheide",

as announced in the Second Circular. We strongly recommend you to
book the touristic events by 26 February, because the tours T4, T5
and T6 will be cancelled by 1 March if there are not enough
