The Spring (northern hemisphere) 2003 meeting of WG14 will be held 31st March - 4th April at the Holiday Inn Oxford (Peartree Roundabout, Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 8JD United Kingdom.). The Spring 2003 meeting of WG21 will be held 6th-11th April at the same venue. Host is ACCU.

If you book by 1st March 2003 (note that it is very unlikely that there will be any spare accommodation for late bookings), the special conference rates for rooms at the hotel are:

85ukp per night (Monday through Thursday), 45ukp per night (Friday through Sunday) for single or double occupancy. These rates are inclusive of all local taxes and include a full breakfast for one. Breakfast for second occupant charged (10ukp).

The same rates are available if you extend your stay at either end.

Reservations can be made by calling the hotel directly, at +44 (0) 1865 888301 (try 888303 if no answer from 888301). Ask for the Sue or Selena. You can Fax your reservation to +44(0)1865 888333. You can also send e-mail to Oxford Holiday Inn Reservations. In all cases, be sure to ask for the ACCU/WG14 block. To guarantee the reservations you'll need a credit card. You can also request smoking or non-smoking rooms.

For more information on the hotel, see: Holiday Inn Oxford

From Heathrow, DO NOT go to London but catch the Oxford Coach (leaving from bay 15 outside Terminal 4 and bay 10 at the Central Bus station. The return fare is currently 16UKP which is roughly 25 dollars/euros. For details see Oxford Coach. (Unfortunately there are a lot of defunct pages referring to Oxford timetables that get thrown up by Google and other search engines, so please use this URL). You will need to go all the way to the Oxford Coach Station and catch a Taxi form there to the hotel.

Nearer the time I will provide maps covering car travel together with hopefully helpful hints on getting from where you are to where you need to be.
