Travel : Mali's capital, Bamako, has frequent flights to and from
destinations in Africa, Europe, and United States. Travel to Mali should
therefore present no problems.
Accommodation: There are several hotels in Bamako with adequate
accommodation. Hotel rates are between 40 and 100 dollars US. Cheaper
accommodation facilities are available for some of the participants,
particularly students, at the Centre Regional d'Energie Solaire which offers
double room at $30. A complete list of the hotels in Bamako will be sent to
the participants with the 2nd announcement.
Academic sessions: The academic sessions of the Congress will take place in
lecturer Hall/theatres equipped with audio-visual equipment. There will be
no more than two parallel sessions on any one day. This should encourage
full participation at sessions. Details of theme/session organisers will be
sent to participants with the Third and final announcement. Papers can be
presented in either English or French.
Post Congress tours
Mali has a rich cultural heritage. This includes archaeological sites known
worldwide (such as Jenne-jeno), famous historical cities (Tombouctou,
Djenne, Gao) and, of course, the Dogon Country which is reputed for the
magnifiscence of its landscape and richness of its traditional culture. It
is planned to arrange tours to some of these sites, and in particular, to
the archaeological site of Jenne - jeno (near the historical town of
Djenne), to Timbuktu (at the edge of the Sahara desert), and to the
Bandiagara cliffs in the Dogon country.
Funding for the Congress is expected to come from donor agencies to whom
approches are being made. It is hoped that it will be possible to assist
some participants from the African continent with travel and other costs.
