Visiting China A Visa is required to visit China (see http://english.ihep.cas.cn/doc/1705.html. As far as we know, a tourist visa (L visa) is the easiest to apply for and the fastest to receive. You can apply for a visa through many online visa agencies. If you need an F visa, please send your personal information (as listed in the webpage) to Bianlin at IHEP, who is available to help you with your travel needs. She will contact our Foreign Affairs Office to apply for a visa application letter for you.

Special rates have been arranged for 550 RMB per night for a standard room (including 1 breakfast) and 600 RMB per night for an executive room (including 1 breakfast). The booking link will be provided as soon as possible.

For the pre-team meeting, accommodation will be at the Park Plaza Beijing Wangufjing.

Attendance at Team Meetings Team meetings are organized for team members in line with the JACoW Terms of Reference and Boundary Conditions. Attendance at meetings is a boundary condition for membership of the JACoW Collaboration and publication of conference proceedings on the JACoW site.

The programme offered at team meetings however covers not only electronic publication issues but also the wider field of conference organisation (SPMS, InDiCo, delegate and exhibitor registration, organisation of OC/SPC meetings, etc.) as well as the very complex IT issues. Attendance is therefore open not only to editors, but to all interested in the above. JACoW Team Members should pass on this information to their colleagues on the LOC.
