To all

 

I am pleased to announce the venue and the meeting arrangements have been
finalized.

 

Brisbane Australia

24-28th September 2012

 

The location is

Queensland University of Technology

Kelvin Grove Campus

Building E  Rooms 305-306

 

The location is not the city campus as I briefly discussed with people in
Geneva but the kelvin grove campus (5 min bus ride from the City on a
dedicated bus way)

 

Getting to Brisbane

Suggest you get an International flight direct into Brisbane. It saves time
as the international Airport is smaller and immigration and customs
clearance is easier than in Sydney or Melbourne. There are direct flights
from Singapore, Korea, Japan, China and the US. There are 2 flights a day
from LA (Qantas and Virgin Australia) and 1 from Dallas/FortWorth (Qantas) .

 

Getting from the Airport to the hotels

Can catch the AirTrain to the city

http://www.airtrain.com.au/products_cbd.php

and hop off at either Central or Roma St stations.

 

 

Hotels

Any hotel near King George Square in the City (Where the bus to the campus
leaves from)
