5. Logistic information

The meeting will be hosted by ITU-TSB at the Montbrillant building of
the ITU Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. Badges will be available
at the registration desk at the entrance of the Montbrillant building
to those that registered for the meeting. Following new security
measures implemented in ITU in early August 2005, no one without a
valid badge will be admitted into the facilities.

6. Registration and VISA Information

To register your meeting attendance, please send an e-mail to Seong-Ho
Jeong <shjeong at> (meeting organizer), providing the family 
name, given name,
company name, address, country name, phone number, fax number, e-mail
address of person(s) attending. Every participant should use the 
registration form at:

AND advise (cc.) the Rapporteur (patrick.luthi at of your 
attendance by e-mail.

Early registration of your attendance is welcome and encouraged, but
preferably before 18 November 2005 to facilitate the production of
badges for all participants. People needing visa support letters
(see below for requirements) should register as soon as possible.

We would remind you that citizens of some countries are required to
obtain a visa in order to enter and spend time in Switzerland. The visa
must be requested and obtained from the office (embassy or consulate)
representing Switzerland in your country or, if there is no such office
in your country, from the one that is closest to the country of
departure. If problems are encountered, for ITU members, the ITU can,
at the official request of the administration or company you represent,
approach the competent Swiss authorities in order to facilitate
delivery of the visa. Visa requests should be made by official letter
from the administration or company you represent. This letter must
specify your name and function, date of birth, passport number as well
as the date of issue and expiration. The letter must be accompanied by a
photocopy of your passport and completed registration form and must be
sent to TSB, bearing the words "visa request", by fax (No.: +41 22 730
or e-mail (tsbreg at Please note that the Union needs at least
one week to process all papers required for the delivery of a visa. For
the ones needing this letter, TSB should receive a meeting registration
form which can be found at:

7. Hotel Room Reservation

Participants should contact the hotels directly for finding your room
availability and making room bookings. Hotels offering preferential
room rates for ITU participants are found at:
An appropriate hotel reservation form can be found at:

Please note that participants must use this hotel reservation form, or
they would NOT get the special ITU rates.

Note: the closest business-class hotel to the ITU buildings is the
Intercontinental, and a more popular strategy is to obtain hotel
accommodations downtown, e.g., near the Cornavin train & bus station
(which is more centrally located than the ITU or the Intercontinental),
from which buses run frequently to the vicinity of the ITU. Not all
hotels are equipped with high-speed internet access, so
participants may want to check with the hotel for the availability of
this service.

I am looking forward to meeting with you in Geneva.

      Sincerely yours,

      Patrick Luthi
