Conference Information

The symposium will be held on the campus of Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (HKUST), on a hillside overlooking the South Chinese sea. Accomodation on campus is available on a first-come-first-serve basis in hotel-quality rooms in a "serviced apartment" (rooms are US$ 40 per night per room).

All presentations will take place in Lecture Theatre C, a few minutes walk from the accomodation. Sport facilities on campus include an outdoor swimming pool, Squash courts, table-tennis, etc., and are available to those staying on-campus. There is a small supermarket, an ATM that should allow you to get money from your credit card, and various restaurants on campus. More information on the conference site, including detailed information on how to get there, is available in our local guide.

HKUST is a bit far from the trendy tourist areas of Hong Kong (at least 30 minutes by taxi, or 45-60 minutes by bus and underground), and so we would recommend staying on-campus. If you don't mind the commute, or if you wish to extend your stay, there is no shortage of hotels in Hong Kong, and current room rates are quite reasonable. The Hong Kong Tourist Association maintains a good list of hotels, and many hotels can even be booked on-line. Typical tourist areas are Tsim Sha Tsui or Tsim Sha Tsui East. If you wish to stay on Hong Kong Island or in the New Territories, consider that the morning traffic will mean that you'll have to get up early to make it to the first session.

The conference banquet on Tuesday night will take us to a Chinese Restaurant in downtown Tsim Sha Tsui East.

Sunday not only has the traditional evening reception for the Symposium, but also a Workshop on Computation Geometry to celebrate Micha Sharir's 50th birthday. If you wish to participate, please click the box in the Symposium registration form.

The registration desk will be open on Sunday morning from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm in front of Lecture Theatre G, on Monday and Tuesday from 8:45 am to 5:00 pm in front of Lecture Theatre C.
