Dear All,

This message is to announce the 21th RIPE meeting in Rome. We would like
to encourage everybody and especially our new contributors to come to
the 21th RIPE meeting.

The meeting is hosted and organised by GARR/CNR. Antonio Blasco Bonito is
the organiser with help from colleagues at CNR. If you are planning to
attend the coming RIPE meeting, please help us by registering for the
meeting as soon as possible. This really helps in planning enough food,
coffee and seats for everyone ie. if you want to get your Italian lunch
(without milk ;-)) register now!

Don't forget to book your hotel as long as possible in advance. May is an
extremely busy conference month in Rome. 

Information about hotels and the meeting venue are available at the
www site of CNR and the RIPE NCC ftp server. A draft agenda and an
announcement about the traditional RIPE Meeting Evening Dinner has been
sent out seperately and is available at the RIPE NCC ftp server.

Kind regards,

David Kessens
RIPE NCC

      How do I get there:
      -------------------

     
      From the airport Fiumicino/Leonardo da Vinci:
      
      Take the direct non-stop train from the airport to Stazione di
      Termini. The train costs L 13,000 and will bring you within 30
      minutes at the station. Trains depart about every 30 minutes but
      they might have some delays! On departure from Roma to the airport,
      get your train tickets from a special ticket office along platform
      22. Taxis from the airport to the station (45 minutes) cost about
      L 60,000.
      
      The meeting site and hotels are all close to Stazione di Termini. 
      Details of the hotels (less then 15 minute walk) to the meeting venue
      can be obtained from:

      http://www.iasi.rm.cnr.it/ripe/hotellist.html
      
      OR
      
      ftp://ftp.ripe.net/ripe/Next-Meeting/ripe21.hotels
      
      
      Check the following map how to get from the station to the
      venue/your hotel:

      http://www.iasi.rm.cnr.it/ripe/hotelmap.html
      
      OR 
      
      ftp://ftp.ripe.net/ripe/Next-Meeting/ripe21.map.termini.ps
     
     
      Public Transport:
      -----------------


      You can buy your bus/metro/train tickets from the automatic ticket
      machines *before* entering the bus/metro/train. One can pay with
      coins or bills. Bus/metro tickets cost L 1500,-. It might be easier
      to walk from most hotels to the venue. All recommended hotels are
      within a 15 minute walk distance to the venue. Taxis from the hotels
      to the meeting venue should cost about L 10,000,- depending in
      which hotel you stay.
            

      Tourist and other information about Roma is available from:
