All Forum participants are strongly encouraged to come early to the Forum and participate in the Pre-Forum Seminars, which occur from 13.00 to 17.30 at the 2013 Forum on Saturday, 25 May. All participants are also encouraged to attend the Post-Forum Seminars, which occur from 8.45 to 12.30 on Thursday, 30 May.
If you are flying into Krakow or Katowice, please plan your travel arrangements accordingly to accommodate for the travel time from Krakow or Katowice to Wisla. Travel time should be approximately 2 hours. Ideally, this means arriving in Krakow or Katowice by 09.30-10.00 or sooner on Saturday, 25 May.
This year we have slightly modified the process for signing up for Pre-Forum Seminars and Post-Forum Seminars:
Step 1 – Review the Pre-Forum Seminars and Post-Forum Seminars below.
Step 2 - Once you have decided which Pre-Forum Seminar and Post-Forum Seminar you would like to attend, log back into your registration account at the link below ("register here"). Once you have signed back in to your account, visit the Agenda section of your account. There you will be able to select the Pre-Forum Seminars and Post-Forum Seminars that you would like to attend.
(You will notice that the links below are a bit different than in previous years. When you click on a link in the table, it will take you to a page for that Seminar speaker so that you can see all of his or her speaking topics. You will find the speaker's bio at the top of each linked page.)
In order to receive the proper materials for each Seminar (outlines, notes, etc.), you will need to sign up. You will not receive these materials in your Forum binder if you do not sign up. The deadline for signing up for the workshops is Monday, 22 April.

SPECIAL TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS
Because we realise that arriving early Saturday morning may not be a possibility for some participants, we have made special arrangements for participants who would like to arrive in Eger on Friday, 24 May.
Transport by bus from both the Krakow and Katowice airports to Wisla will be provided during the day on Friday, 24 May for a fee of 40 euros. For an additional 60 euros for a double room (or 80 euros for a single room), we will provide hotel accommodations once the participant arrives in Wisla. Please be aware that food will not be provided during the Pre- or Post-Forum Seminars. Meal coverage begins with dinner on Saturday, 25 May.
If you would like hotel accommodations for Friday, 24 May, please email Kevin Saylor at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so that we can reserve your room for the extra night. You will need to pre-pay for the extra night's accommodations.
You can sign up for bus transport for Friday, 24 May and Saturday, 25 May using this form.
Important: Please sign up as soon as possible. Many of these seminars will allow only a limited number of participants.
In 2013, several Pre- and Post-Forum Seminars will feature FOCL Talks. What is a FOCL Talk?
