The resort of Borovets is 73km from Sofia and 126km from Plovdiv (see the map at the conference site), which means that both Sofia and Plovdiv with their international airports can serve as arrival/departure points. In addition to regular public transport, the organisers will provide daily shuttle buses from Sofia airport to the conference location at an inexpensive rate. A taxi from Sofia to Borovets is relatively cheap; it is also possible to take a taxi from the international airport in Sofia to the conference venue. =================== FURTHER INFORMATION =================== Further information can be obtained from Galia Angelova (galia_(on)_lml.bas.bg). ======================= ORGANIZERS and SPONSORS ======================= The main local organizer is the Linguistic Modelling Department, Institute for Parallel Processing, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (www.lml.bas.bg).
