The Conference will take place in the scenic city of Sozopol on the Black Sea Coast, Bulgaria, Sozopol is the home of numerous high-quality resorts with very reasonable prices (usually of the order of 50-60 euro per night). The city itself offers an array of dining and entertainment places, not to mention the cozy sand beaches. The place is relatively small and anybody may find it convenient to look for an accommodation in any of the hotels. The walking distance from any point to another point would not probably exceed 10 minutes. We contracted the hosting hotel to be three-star"Selena" where the sessions, coffee breaks, and welcome party will be held. Only limited part of participants will be accommodated there. For booking rooms in neighbor hotels please contact again the hotel "Selena" management, and they redirect and confirm your accommodation. You should do that by May 31st at latest. You are kindly asked to identify yourselves as registered participants of the 1st AMiTaNS'09 conference. We recommend those of you who intend to accommodate in other hotels or private rooms to contact travel and touristic agencies to provide reservations.
