    Guangzhou Normal University (GNU) is now one of the leading universities in Guangzhou. It is located in the southern city of Guangzhou, adjacent to Hong Kong and Macao. With a strong staff and complete disciplines, GNU is dedicated to training qualified personnel for the elementary education and the social and economic development of the city.

    GNU is easily accessible by all means of transportation. During ATCM '99, GNU will provide a shuttle bus service between the campus and the Baiyun International Airport and the Guangzhou Railway Station.

    We can arrange the following accommodations for the participants:

    Guest House US$22 per night
    Academic Exchange Center, GNU (3 Stars) US$35 per night
    China Hotel (5 Stars) US$148 per night
    *All the rates given are on the basis of a standard hotel room with two separate beds. If you want to share a room, each of the roommates pays half of the price. Price does not include breakfast. Cost of breakfast is very affordable though.

    ** Early registration is desirable, for it might be difficult to book a hotel room during the Christmas vacation.
