Budapest Convention Centre
Opening hours of the registration desk:
This year IMTC will provide a free emailing capability. Ten computers will be available to check your emails, and to send short messages. Since about 400 participants are foreseen, and we share a common communication line with limited bandwidth, there may be long queues - please minimize your emailing time when other colleagues are waiting for the computers, and do not try to download large files at any time using the browser (= browsing of pages with much graphics). The IMTC/2001 WEB pages will be available locally on each machine.
The computers will have Telnet and Secure Telnet (ssh), and a WEB browser, so you can connect to your home server and remotely read your messages and send new ones. These will also allow sending emails without remote login (at least when no email response is expected, since the response address in the emails is not a personal one).
This facility is meant for making your contacting home easier - other "regular" computer service possibilities (e. g. floppy read/write, etc.) will be switched off, to minimize the danger of viruses and to avoid unwanted lengthy use.
For users of email providers (e. g. America Online, or Hotmail, or Compuserve), there is another possibility available. If you have your laptop with you, you can use local phone call from your room to an Internet provider in Budapest. Before leaving for Budapest, please check in your laptop computer
For the connection, you certainly need to run your laptop computer (for power connection, see the Budapest page), have a modem, and have a standard phone connector with cable (type RJ-11).
It also makes sense to bring a "microsaver" with you, so that
you can lock
computer to its place when you are not there.
The organizers cannot undertake any responsibility for theft, or for having problems with the Internet access.
However, for some providers, the web addresses are given here (we have no preference, please), along with two phone numbers which might be of use for you. (the country and area codes for Budapest are: +36 1 if you want to experiment beforehand from abroad).
These phone numbers respond to us with the well-known modem sound... but we cannot login since we are not users.
If you find out any more information, please email it to email@example.com, and we will add it to this page.
Informative WEB links
We apologize for the non-English contents of certain pages. Better these than none ...
