Registration and Travel Info
============================

HOTEL AND TRAVEL INFORMATION

Rooms have been blocked at the Fort Lauderdale Marina Marriott that
are available to the participants at a rate of $95 per night, single
or double occupancy for the Symposium, a huge savings against the
''rack rate.'' They must be booked directly with the hotel by
December 19:

Fort Lauderdale Marina Marriott,
1881 Southeast 17th Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316.
Phone: (305) 463-4000
Fax: (305) 527-6705

The applicants must mention the symposium, and should probably mention
Florida Atlantic University. The hotel management would like the
applicants to specify arrival and departure dates and estimated time
of arrival, room preference (single or double/double, smoking or
non-smoking), credit card type to be used for payment including number
and expiration date (this, or a one-night deposit, is absolutely
necessary to hold rooms past 6PM).

Delta Air Lines, Inc., in cooperation with the Fourth International
Symposium on Artificial Intelligence and Mathematics, is offering
special rates to the meeting. These fares are based on Delta's
published round-trip fares within the United States and Canada, San
Juan, Nassau, Bermuda, St. Thomas, and St. Croix. To take advantage of
these discounts, call your travel agent or call Delta at
1-800-241-6760, for reservations 7:30 a.m.-11:00 p.m., Mon-Fri, 8:30
a.m.-11:00 p.m., Sat/Sun Eastern time, and refer to file number
XM0039.

SYMPOSIUM REGISTRATION INFORMATION

Regular Advanced Registration Fee: $165
