Final Announcement

Dear Colleagues,

The 11th East Asian VLBI Workshop 2018 (EAVW2018) will be held in PyeongChang, hosted by the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute.

The EAVW2018 program and updated information are given on the web page: https://radio.kasi.re.kr/event/eavn2018. The KTX timetables from Seoul or Cheongnyangni railway stations in Seoul to Jinbu are updated and the shuttle bus timetable is finally fixed (see the “Transportation” page for details). You can download the PDF from the “Transportation” page, for showing to a TAXI driver if traveling from/to the KTX Jinbu station if the shuttle bus is not running. The map of the venue and meeting rooms are available at the “Venue and Accommodation” page. Please visit the EAVW2018 web page for details.

The registration desk will be opened on Tuesday 4 September (17:00 - 19:00) and on Wednesday 5 September (08:00 - 10:00) in front of the “Emerald (에메랄드) Hall” at the Tower Condominium. Participants who will not arrive on time, please ask LOC (who will be wearing a red color name tag) for the registration. Please note that the registration fee (KRW 100,000) must be paid in Korean cash at the registration desk. The registration fee covers three lunches (Sep 5 - 7) and workshop dinner (Sep 6).

[Welcome Reception]
The welcome reception will be prepared on Tuesday 4 September (18:00 - 20:00) at the “Emerald (에메랄드) Hall”. A selection of light dishes will be served. Do not miss it!

[Workshop Program]
Since there are more than 60 scientific programs, the schedule is very tight. Oral presentations will last 15 minutes and invited talks will last 20 or 25 minutes. In order for us to stay on schedule, we strongly recommend copying your presentation files to the workshop computer in the break before your session. The size of posters can be up to A0.

[Lunch, Workshop Dinner and EAVN MoU Signing Ceremony]
The workshop lunch will be prepared at the restaurant “Blanche”, the 1st floor of Tower Condominium from September 5th and 7th. The workshop dinner and the EAVN MoU Signing Ceremony is scheduled at the “Grand Ballroom” in the Dragon Valley Hotel from 18:00 to 20:30, on September 6th.

On September 6th, we will go for an excursion right after the morning session. We are going to take the Mt. Balwangsan Cable Car, which stretches over Asia’s longest course of 7.4km and brings us to the summit of the mountain (see https://www.yongpyong.co.kr/eng/leisure/gondola.do). It takes ~ 20min from the “Dragon Plaza” at the YongPyong Resort to get to the summit, where we will have lunch (Korean Bibimbap) at the restaurant “Dragon Castle” on top of Mt. Balwangsan. The height of Mt. Balwangsan is 1,458m. So, please bring your warm jumper or jacket for the cold and wind at the summit. Comfortable shoes are recommended if you take a walk around the peak.

[KaVA/EAVN Science Working Group Meeting]
Four science working group meetings will be held on September 4th at the meeting rooms (Hongsong, Cheoljuk, and Jajack) in the Tower Condominium. Please check the detailed schedule and meeting room information in the program book.

[Additional Notice]
  • The buffet breakfast at the restaurant “Chalet” in the Dragon Valley Hotel is available from 07:00 - 10:30. A special 20% discount (KRW 25,000 → 20,000) will be applied for the EAVW2018 participants. Please bring your name tag with you and you can pay in cash or credit card on-site.
