5. Logistic Information

The meeting will be hosted by ITU TSB at the ITU Headquarters in

6. Registration and VISA Information

To register your meeting attendance, please pre-register using the
online form.


Additionally, please forward to the organizers of this meeting,
Seong-Ho Jeong (shjeong at hufs.ac.kr) and Naoh Luo (noah at huawei.com),
a copy of the registration acknowledgement message that will be
automatically sent to you after you pre-register.

Early registration of your attendance is welcome and encouraged, but
preferably before 12 June 2009 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 expiry. The letter must be
accompanied by a photocopy of your passport and a copy of the
completed pre-registration form and must be sent to TSB, bearing the
words "visa request", by fax (No.: +41 22 730 5853) or e-mail
(tsbreg at itu.int). Please note that ITU needs at least one week to
process all papers required for the delivery of a visa.

7. Hotel Room Reservation

Participants should contact the hotels directly regarding room
availability and for making room bookings. However, they *MUST* use
the ITU hotel registration form available from the ITU web site in
order to be eligible for the special ITU rates. Hotels offering
preferential room rates for participants of ITU meetings, instructions
and the form are found at: <http://www.itu.int/travel/>.

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.

We are looking forward to meeting with you in Geneva.

Sincerely yours,
