- Hiya Carlos, Thank you for the information. A couple of things:
- when I plan conferences, I always schedule my arrival a full 24 hours earlier - this is to take into account flight delays, and to allow me time to acclimatize. I usually pay for the extra day of hotel costs myself.
- similarly, after the conference, I always allow a few days to enjoy the country I am visiting. Again, I pay all expenses related to this myself, as it is a short vacation.
At any rate, please ensure people at the university are in contact with me directly before any bookings are finalized.
All of that said, I am please to confirm my attendance for the conference for the dates 5-6-7 December. :)May 10, 2012
