      General information
      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.
