This year's

BEUG meeting

will be held at the

IBIS Brussels Centre

Gare du Midi

in Brussels, Belgium,

the 23rd of May 2003

We have opted for Brussels instead of a maybe more pittoresque town to allow those who want to come and leave the same day the easiest possible travel. This is the reason for starting 10:00h sharp with registration beginning 9:30h. We expect the end of the final discussion at 6 o'clock in the afternoon.

The formal AGENDA will follow shortly. If you have contributions, please let us know!

Joining us is so easy: There are regular shuttle trains from the Airport to the Bruxelles-Midi/Brussel-Zuid station about every 20 minutes.

This station is also the only stop in Brussels for all Eurostar/Thalys/ICE connections.

Take station exit "Av. Fosny" to drop immediately into the meeting hotel.

Should you decide to drive, the easiest would be to take "La Petite Ceinture" inner ring and drop your car at the "Q-Park" public parking, entrance on the other side of the railway station (details below).

While our meeting hotel is very convenient for the busy, those who like to stay might enjoy an evening at the nearby "Grand' Place" in one of the many restaurants.

Or take an excursion to Bruges or Leuven.

We have arranged special prices for BEUG members in our meeting hotel:

85 EUR single, 94 EUR double including breakfast.

See below for a walking map

We will have lunch not in the meeting hotel but in a nearby Restaurant,

"La Porteuse d'Eau"

It is an "Art Nouveau" original.
