Counting down to Sarajevo – update 2

Dear CTS delegates,

The countdown to Sarajevo continues, so here we are with some further news for you!

  • As promised in our last update, we are now able to provide you with some more information about transfers from Sarajevo airport to the conference hotels (all three hotels are very close to one another, so everyone can use the same transfer service).  Most delegates will be arriving on June 23rd, 24th or 25th on flights from from Istanbul, Vienna and Munich. A free shuttle bus will leave Sarajevo airport around 1.15 pm, 3 pm and 8.15 pm on the 23rd and the 24th, and 1.15 pm and 3 pm on the 25th. There will be a volunteer or a member of the organsing team at the airport to direct you. You can sign up for airport transfers here: http://doodle.com/crvcu95c8itnypud. If you arrive on another day or if the times above are not convenient, then we suggest you take one of the taxis waiting outside the airport. Hotel Europe is very well-known. There are cash machines in the airport.

 

  • We are currently developing a full version of the programme with speaker slots. It is hard to finalise this now as we still have delegates registering – there will be around 110 CTS-ers in Sarajevo! We hope to have a first version up online early next week. To re-iterate what we mentioned in the last email update: presentation slots will be 15 minutes long with 5 minutes for questions. Powerpoint will be available. Please bring your presentations on a memory stick.

 

  • We have finalised the trips and excursions for the 28th. These are included in the conference fee so they are free. Delegates will have a choice of 5 options: two city walking tours with a typical Bosnian coffee (10 am and 2 pm, half day), a war and peace tour (10 am, half day), a tour explaining the relations between different religions in the city (10 am, half day) and a bus tour to Lukomir (10 am, full day). You will be able to sign up for one of these trips at the registration desk. In addition, a visit to EkoMozaik, a social enterprise and eco-farm, is planned on the 27th –  7 delegates will have the chance to visit the farm and get their hands dirty on site! If you are interested in this trip, please bring suitable attire. Again, you will be able to sign up at the reception desk.

 

  • Finally, we would like to follow up on a few optional extra activities we highlighted in our last email:
    • Extending your trip: there is interest among our delegates in a 3 day tour before the conference starts (22-25/06) and a two day tour after the conference has ended (28-29/06). Descriptions of the tours can be found here: http://cts.som.surrey.ac.uk/2013/05/19/extending-your-trip/ If you would like to sign up, please contact sarajevo@greenvisions.ba.
    • 25/06 Vegetarian organic dinner at Ecofutura:  There are just a few places left for the dinner we have organised on the first conference night in Ecofutura, an ecological entertainment and event centre with an eco-village, which produces its own organic food. (http://www.ecotourism.ba/). A bus will leave the hotel at 7 pm.  The cost for this trip (including dinner and transport) is €25 per person. If you would like to sign up, please email cts@surrey.ac.uk.

 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us on cts@surrey.ac.uk. See you very soon in Sarajevo!

 

The CTS team
