First Technical Conference Participants:
The Conference is about to start. It promises to be a great week in Chiang Mai. This time of year is the nicest weather and an important Holiday period in Thailand.
If you are arriving by plane at the Chiang Mai Airport look for hotel staff with a sign for the Mae Ping Imperial Hotel to get the shuttle to the hotel. You are free on Sunday to explore the city. The Hotel is located not far from the Old City Center and the Night Bazaar. On the 10th, a representative of the organizing committee will be present in the lobby of the hotel to greet you and answer any questions from 17:00 to 18:30.
Conference registration starts on the morning of December 11th (Tuesday) in front of Imperial Hall 1 from 8 AM. The Conference Secretariat will be in Imperial 4.
Please note that most presentations have a time block of 20 minutes. Presenters should plan to speak for 15 minutes and leave 5 minutes for questions and change of speaker. Selected presentations marked on the program as innovative presentations have a 30-minute time block. Presenters should plan to speak for about 22 minutes and leave the reminder for discussion and change of speaker. Presentations should be brought to the Secretariat Room by 9 AM of the day of the presentation. The updated program can be downloaded from the conference page on this website
Poster stands will be available. There is no set format for the posters. The stands are 1.8 m in length by 2.4 m in width and normally accommodate 2 posters. You are reminded that font size should be sufficient for the poster to be easily read at a distance of 8 feet.
Looking forward to seeing everyone in Chiang Mai,
