ICNN97 HOTEL REGISTRATION FORM

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE VENUE
The Conference will be held in the Westin Galleria Hotel, located in The
Galleria complex, a glass enclosed entertainment/shopping center with over
350 retail stores in the heart of uptown Houston. Houston, Texas is
America's fourth largest city and is also the capital of the international
energy industry, the largest international port in North America, and the
headquarters for America's Mann Space Flight Effort. Houston is also home of
the world's largest medical center--a burgeoning Mecca of multicultural arts
which also defines the colorful nature of this city.

TRAVEL INFORMATION
Houston boasts two major international airports: Houston Intercontinental
and Hobby. Houston Intercontinental Airport is the eighth largest airport
system in the United States for international travel. It has three modern
terminals connected by a state-of-the-art subway system. Hobby Airport
offers full US and regional service with easy access to all parts of the city.
Travel is very convenient, with many non-stop flights and easy connections
from other major cities, as Houston is a hub for many airlines. ICNN
attendees will find that flexible flight schedules and low fares await them
in Houston. For special discounted rates, contact Nationwide Travel at (714)
847-1788. Be sure to identify yourself as an IEEE ICNN 97 attendee.
Round trip shuttle bus service to both airports is available through Airport
Express, which provides passenger pick-up and drop-off at both the Westin
Galleria and The Westin Oaks Hotels. The cost of a one-way fare to Houston
Intercontinental Airport is $16.00, and the airport is approximately 25

Houston Intercontinental Airport. Approximate travel time is one hour.
