IRWG/TCCON 2012 Meeting
As you all probably know, the Swiss franc is very healthy now compared to most of the other currencies. This is unfortunate but since the meeting location was chosen last year, we will all have to do with this fact. Wengen is also a very nice destination in an otherwise generally expensive country. It will also not help...
Another characteristic of Switzerland is that hotel rooms rates are considered on a per person basis (or nearly so), not per room. Therefore, sharing a room does not save much financially.
The REGINA hotel has been chosen as the meeting place since it is the only hotel in Wengen to have a conference room large enough for our group. It is also the highest class hotel in Wengen and has a very good restaurant.
Special rates and a block of about 45 rooms have been secured with the Regina hotel for our meeting (from Sunday 10th evening to Saturday 16th morning). Outside of these limits, the hotel is free to apply or not the special meeting rates.
Here are the details.

If you have special problems like young students, you may discuss this with the hotel direction and find a specific solution but this would fall outside of the general agreement we negotiated with the hotel.

A final reservation must be made the night before for lunch and dinner. For the 4 conference days, the business lunch and 4-course dinner are considered as the default and you should only contact the hotel if you do not follow this schedule. Please, order also your Jungfraujoch visit picnic no later than Wednesday evening.
