5. Logistic Information



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

Geneva, Switzerland. Badges will be available in the registration desk

at the entrance to the Montbrillant building to those that

pre-registered for the meeting. Following the security measures

implemented in ITU in 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 pre-register using the

online form.


< http://www.itu.int/cgi-bin/htsh/edrs/ITU-T/studygroup/



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 10 February 2012 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,


Seong-Ho Jeong (meeting organizer of this meeting)

Noah LUO (meeting organizer of this meeting)
