Please find a draft schedule at www.CICLing.org/2003/schedule.htm. Please confirm the date/time of you talk. Specifically, if you need a visa or otherwise are not sure you will be able to present your talk, please inform me of this.
If you have a STRONG preference to change the date/time, please let me know (please avoid this option whenever possible).
Please note the duration of your talk.
Comments/suggestions are welcome.
We will make registrations a bit later. The hotel El Ejecutivo always has plenty of free rooms at this time, so no hurry. However, El Ejecutivo still did not confirm a special discount for the conf (if they don't, we may consider another hotel).
Please note that the transportation and the excursions will be from/to the chosen hotel, so I do recommend you to stay at the recommended hotel.
To decide, please see the photo pages of the past events (the 2000 event's page is most complete). I do recommend you to go to the excursions. Note that their cost is included in the registration fee ;-)
One comment: the Wednesday excursion is usually quite long and difficult: 4.5+4.5 hours in the bus, plus 0.5+0.5 hours in an open truck, plus 0.5+0.5 hours walking up/down a hill, plus some 2 hours for dinner. In addition, after the last year's frosts in the region, the population of the butterflies might have dramatically reduced, so what you will see might be not so impressive as in other years. Having said this, I still recommend you to go to this excursion. Otherwise, you can use Wednesday for shopping and sightseeing in Mexico City (also plenty of things to see!).
Other excusions will also involve a lot of both bus and walking:
. . . . Sunday: 1.5+1.5 hours bus, 6 hours walking;
. . . . Friday: 15+15 minutes, 3 hours walking,
. . . . Saturday: 2+1+1+2 hours, 5 hours walking.
We will try to prepare your docs in advance. For this, please let me know if you want any special arrangements as to what should appear in your receipt. Please on Monday morning try to have the necessary money ready (without change) in cash in US dollars.
