The remainder of this news item consists of a `How to get there'
written from personal experience by Neil Todd and finally details of
the latest conference programme.

How to get to the Hotel Estoril-Sol from Lisbon Airport

You have two choices: taxi or public transport. A taxi is faster but
much more expensive, make sure that you negotiate the fare before you
start as the journey will take you outside the Lisbon City Limits.

Using public transport is a bit more difficult, but presents no real
problems. Take either a 44 or 45 bus to ``Cais do Sodre'' station (its
the end of the route, so you don't need to worry about when to get
out), the bus will probably have ``C Sodre'' on its destination board.
You might feel like taking a taxi on this leg of the journey, its
completely within Lisbon city limits so there is no need to negotiate.
Beware of the faster Linha Verde bus, this with leave you at the wrong

At the station catch a train to Cascais (end of the line), there are
fast trains every 20 mins during the day, every 30-40 mins during
early morning and late evening. The journey should take about
30-40mins. The train destinations are clearly displayed on T.V.
screens near the platforms.  Trains run until about 02:30 and start
again at about 05:00.

At Cascais take a taxi to the hotel (about 1km). There is a closer
station, but you will have a lot of stairs and a busy road to cross.

If you have any doubts, there is a tourist information office at the
Airport who will be glad to help. Car hire is reasonably priced
(although petrol isn't), all the major chains have offices at the
Airport. You probably can get a good discount by booking in advance
with your local travel agent, failing that the In flight magazine on
your plane may well contain discount vouchers.

Finally a word about fares, you should aim to book as early as possible
as seats are going fast, most airlines offer discounts for early
booking. Ask about Pex and SuperPex fares.
