The 10th SolarPACES International Symposium on Solar
Thermal Concentrating Technologies
SolarPACES Executive Committee Meeting
The SolarPACES Executive Committee meeting will be held at the "Novotel
Sydney on Darling Harbour" Hotel on the 6 & 7 March 2000. This
meeting is by invitation only and the agenda and business papers will be
forwarded by the Executive Secretary.
Hotel is located on the Western side of Darling Harbour, near the Convention
Centre and Casino. It can easily be reached by the monorail that connects
the Central Business District (CBD) hotels with Darling Harbour. The
monorail travels in an anti clockwise direction, trains depart every
five (5) minutes and the cost is A$3.00. There are Monorail stops in or
near the Hilton Hotel, the Park Regis Hotel, the All Seasons Hotel, the
Novotel as well as other places.
The Novotel can also be reached on foot. Depending on the walker's
fitness and the number of red lights encountered, the walk should not take
more than 20 to 30 minutes from anywhere within the monorail loop (NOTE:
The author has not done this walk for many years, so the information is
not 100% reliable!)
Please follow this link for a larger
map showing the Sydney CBD and the possibility to download it.
The meetings will take place in Terrace Rooms 1&2
The location for the working dinner will only be revealed on the night.
A Special Event - The Sydney Mardi Gras Festival
Sydney's Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras festival is second only to the
carnivale in Rio de Janeiro. It is a celebration of gay culture with art
and performances during February culminating in a night of outrageous entertainment,
when Sydney's extroverted gay community dons leather and lace for a noisy
and colourful (but peaceful) parade along Oxford St. on Saturday, 4 March
starting at 8pm. This is an event not to be missed, but recommended only
for the liberal minded. More information is available here.
