Travel to NanjingNanjing is a major city in China. There are international airline connections directly to Nanjing Lukou Airport and via transfer at airports in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai and many others. There are also very convenient train connections from Shanghai and Beijing, which take slightly more than 1h from Shanghai and about 4h from Beijing. Travel within Nanjing can be done cheaply via taxi and public transport. Hopefully helpful tips for travelling in Nanjing and China can be found in the booklet.
Remember that travelling to China requires a visa; but it should be relatively easy to obtain one for participants. You will need a letter of invitation which Chunhan will send you (chunhanwu at 126 dot com). You need to provide him with your name, title, DOB, work address, e-mail and paper title (if you present a paper). See the booklet for details about the visa application.
RegistrationThe early rate of the registration fee will be 3300元 (ca. £350/$533/€488). The late rate starting from 1 August will be 3800元. The registration fee includes lunches during the conference. It also covers the excursion, the conference banquet and a welcome reception. The tutorials are separate. Their registration fee is 250元 for the Isabelle-tutorial and 200元 for the Coq-tutorial.
The registration fee needs to be transferred via a bank transfer; we cannot accept credit cards etc for the conference fee. The hotel and many other things can be paid by credit card, but not the conference fee. See the booklet for details about the bank transfer.
Being in China, Nanjing offers the usual conveniences of good and affordable food. It has several excellent museums and tourist attractions. In the nearby vicinity are touristic hotspots like Yangzhou, Hangzhou, Wuxi and Suzhou. If you want to explore Nanjing yourself, the best tour is to go to the Purple Mountains passing by the Linggusi pagoda, the city wall and the Ming tombs (see pictures on the left). There is a wide selection of excellent restaurants around Nanjing's Confucius Temple.
ExcursionThe excursion went to Yangzhou (1h away from Nanjing by bus). We walked around the Slender West Lake with its pavilions, the white Lotus Flower Pagoda and the Suzhou-style gardens.
