Subject Re: [GT2005] REPOST: GetTogether 2005 Call For Participation - deadline in less than 3 weeks
Date Tue, 16 Aug 2005 15:29:41 GMT
I'm trying to get approval from my employer to attend. Do you know what 
the conference cost will be?  Can you recommend any hotels? I've never 
been to Amsterdam (or Europe for that matter) so any help is appreciated.
