-----<Mr. Tosco's message to Rapporteurs dated 29 September 1998>----

Date: Tue, 29 Sep 1998 17:34:49 +0200
From: Tosco Federico <Federico.Tosco at CSELT.IT>
Subject: November Expert meeting
To: "'Geary, Tom'" <tom.geary at nb.rockwell.com>,
        "'Okubo, Sakae'" <okubo at giti.or.jp>,
        "'Skran, Dale'" <Dale.Skran at ascend.com>,
        "'Thom, Gary'" <gthom at delta-info.com>

Dear all,

First of all I would like to confirm the facilities available for the
November meeting:
 - auditorium (170 seats)
 - meeting room, 40 places
 - meeting room, 15-20 places

For information about CSELT, how to reach it, hotels in Torino, etc.,
I suggest you to visit our homepage: http://www.cselt.it.

In particular on the presentation page click on "Overview", where you
will find:

 - "Getting to CSELT", where you find information about how to reach
 - "A guided tour", where under "Supports" some of the facilities,
   including the Auditorium, are presented

Under "Getting to CSELT" you find also a list of hotels, where you can
obtain reduced rates mentioning "CSELT Convention".

Torino airport is connected with the main European cities (Paris,
Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Brussels, Zurich, Madrid,...) and has many
flights to/from Rome every day (see link to Turin Airport under
"Getting to CSELT").If you arrive with an intercontinental flight, I
suggest to avoid the intercontinental airport of Milano (Milan), which
is not far from Torino but has poor connections to Torino. Much better
to arrive to Rome or to another destination in Europe having a flight
connection to Torino.CSELT is very close to the Torino airport (15
minutes by taxi).
