Dear Workshop Participant:
   We would like to inform that we are not going to be able to ensure the availability of Internet access or general use computers to participants during the conference in the Hotel do Bosque. We will, however, make available a computer, data show, and an overhead projector in the lecture room.  There will be also a small blackboard. You may consider bringing your lecture on a 1.44Mb (dos/linux) disquette, a pen drive, or a cd-rom.  Thanks for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.  We  hope you will make the appropriate arrangements to be happily disconnected for a few days. Urgent Internet withdraw syndromes might be mitigated by (slow) dial-up connections or trips to Internet cafes in (somewhat) nearby towns.
