Conference location


 ISESS Whistler 1997: A conference on environmental informatics

 with a venue that you'll not forget.

 Whistler Mountain and its companion Blackcomb form the backdrop

 for arguably the premier ski and outdoors alpine recreation

 location of North America, loacted just 105 kms North of Vancouver

 (rated amongst the 10 most beautiful cities in the world). =

 The route to Whistler uses the breathtaking Sea to Sky highway =

 North from the city.

 The conference venue is the elegant Delta Whistler Resort. Special

 conference rates have been negotiated (CDN$ 109+tax). Arrangement

 for computers and connections to the internet are available right

 at the hotel.

 Transportation from Vancouver airport to Whistler is very

 inexpensive and frequent.
