Please note lunch boxes will be provided for meeting participants.


The workshop banquet will be on the evening of Nov 7, starting from 18:00. The banquet information slide shown at the coffee break can be found here. This restaurant serves Thai food (see TripAdvisor info here), and will offer vegetarian options. The location is near the Taipei 101 area and the famous Eslite bookstore. ASIAA will arrange one-way transportation to the restaurant at dinner time, but participants will have to find their own way back to the hotel after dinner.


On the street map is marked the locations of the restaurant and the hotel (Howard International). On the MRT map, the relevant stations are indicated. Participants can take MRT from “Taipei City Hall” on the Blue Line, transfer to Taipower Building on the Green Line, and walk for around 10 minutes back to the hotel. Or for those who might wander off to the 101 Building, you can board the MRT from “Taipei 101” station on the Red Line and transfer to the Green Line.
