Preproposal for SDS conference in Seoul, Korea

†††††††††††† - Seoul, Korea

Seoul is the capital city of Korea. It has numerous historic sites and beautiful mountains and rivers. For further information, please visit http://english.seoul.go.kr/.

- Yonsei University in 2008

Yonsei School of Businessís new building is under construction and will be completed in 2007. Even though there are three existing buildings in Yonsei School of Business(http://ysb.yonsei.ac.kr/), Main YBS Building, Sangnam, and Allen Center, and these buildings offer decent conference rooms (capacity: 2 rooms for 500 people, 10 rooms for 50 people, 10 rooms for 100 people), new building could offer better facilities. For further information, please visit http://www.yonsei.ac.kr/eng/.

- Accommodation

The main accommodation for conference is President Hotel in Seoul. Hanyang University (http://www.hanyang.ac.kr/english/), who is the co-host of this conference in 2008, owns President Hotel, therefore special fee is offered by President Hotel. (Normal accommodation fee of other hotels near President Hotel is 80% higher in average.) President hotel is in the center of Seoul near myriads of sight-seeing places. There are a lot of royal palaces of Chosun Dynasty and also city hall, Kwang-hwa-mun, where Red devils gather cheering for Korean soccer team. Historical sites, parks, museums, and galleries are in 30 minutes walk distance. Yonsei University, where most meetings are held, is 15-20 minutes away by bus from President Hotel.

Sub-accommodation for SDS conference is on campus. There are 46 twin rooms on campus. Students could stay in these rooms at very low price.
