You can import this ICAL Calendar Link
into your own calendar. Please note that "Johannesburg" in the calendar refers to the time zone, not to the place of the conference,
which is, of course, Cape Town!
Here is the abstract booklet that will be distributed at the conference. You can also click on calendar entries

Cape Town International Airport is a major airport in
South Africa with direct connections to many international locations, mainly in Europe and Asia. The main airport
in South Africa is O. R. Tambo International Airport
in Johannesburg, which has plenty of flight connections to locations all over the world and connections to Cape Town
throughout the day (the flight Johannesburg - Cape Town takes about 2 hours).
Here are some examples for non-stop flights to South Africa:
Frankfurt - Cape Town: daily (Lufthansa)
London - Cape Town: twice per day (British Airways and South African Airways)
Amsterdam - Cape Town: daily (KLM)
Singapore - Cape Town: three times per week (Singapore Airlines)
Munich - Cape Town: Thursdays and Sundays (Air Berlin)
Kuala Lumpur - Cape Town: twice per week (Malaysia Airlines)
Buenos Aires - Cape Town: twice per week (Malaysia Airlines)
Paris - Johannesburg: daily (Air France)
Atlanta - Johannesburg: daily (Delta)
Hong Kong - Johannesburg: ten times per week (South African Airways and Cathay Pacific)
New York - Johannesburg: daily (South African Airways) with stopover in Dakar on the way back
Sydney - Johannesburg: six times per week (Qantas)
We recommend to book an airport shuttle prior to your arrival. We have an agreed conference
discount of R275 (first person, R45 for each further person) with the company Magic Bus.
Please arrange the airport shuttle directly with them using the conference code "CCA-CCR 2011"
(we will arrange shuttles for invited speakers).
Alternatively, metered taxis are usually safe, reliable, and comparatively cheap (R200-R250).
It is recommendable to check the visa conditions before
booking a flight. Travellers from many countries can obtain a visa upon entry. However, some conditions are enforced very
striclty, for instance, one has to have sufficiently many empty pages in the passport and the passport has to be valid long enough beyond the visit.
Here, you can find some information on health and
safety in South Africa.
As accommodation during the conference we recommend the following guesthouse:
We will book rooms for invited speakers and we kindly ask all other participants
to book directly with them (see contact details on the web page linked above).

Another option is to choose some accommodation in the centre of the city, which is usually more expensive
and not in walking distance of the conference venue. There is also no public transport besides taxis!

to the main campus (where the conference venue is) by a shuttle bus.
