To attend the congress, use the following online registration link:
The complete WORLDCOMP'07 schedule will be available at the following site in early June: http://www.worldacademyofscience.org/worldcomp07/ws/program

You are to reserve your hotel room directly by calling Monte Carlo Resort at 1-702-730-7000 or 1-702-730-7777. Make sure that you mention the Group Code "XWRLD" (XWRLD is the keyword that the hotel will use to handle the reserved block of rooms for the Congress). You should reserve your room as soon as possible since our block is very close to being fully booked. The negotiated room rate is $79 + tax per night for the duration of the conference. However, at this point only a very few rooms are available for reservation. So, if you were unable to get a room at this hotel, then you should try other nearby hotels.
