2.     Reservations in hotel “Arkadia” are made according to your requests. Breakfast may be included in your payment during check-in at the reception. Lunches and dinners are ordered separately. The restaurant in “Arkadia” needs information about the expected number of guests, for which reason we kindly ask you to fill in the attached Questionnaire. Please fill in also the Questionnaire related to your interest in particular social events during the Conference and return the completed Questionnaire at your earliest convenience, but not later than May 9.

You will be met by members of the organizing committee to help you in hiring a “best price” taxi to “Arkadia”, about 100 UAH, equivalent to 4 USD (cheap!).
