Dear Conference participants,

With just around four days to the beginning of Meteoroids 2016 in Noordwijk,  we would like to inform you of a few practical issues concerning the conference.
1. On the first day of your arrival, all visitors arriving at ESTEC need to register at the Gate House, outside the main entrance, before accessing the site. Please make sure to bring a valid ID (National ID card or passport) with you. You will be given a visitor badge that must be carried for the whole duration of your stay at ESTEC. The procedure of getting the badge might take some time as there are many visitors coming to ESTEC every day. Therefore, we strongly recommend to arrive a little earlier on the first day to avoid delays in the programme. At the Gate House you will receive information on how to get to the meeting room and also a wifi guest account will be issued at the same time (the login details will be printed on the badge). After registering you can enter the site showing your visitor badge and valid ID.
2. Be reminded that no ESA shuttle buses will be available on Monday morning, use public transportation (http://www.cosmos.esa.int/web/meteoroids2016/getting-here) or share a taxi, e.g. Taxi Brouwer (http://www.taxibrouwer.nl, 071-36 11 000).
3. Preparing your talk and/or a poster, please follow the Presentation Guidelines that are posted at http://www.cosmos.esa.int/web/meteoroids2016/guidelines
4. Since the interest in organised trips within the spouse/partner programme was not large enough we could not make any arrangements. Instead, we have provided on the conference web site a list of interesting places that your spouse/partner can visit individually: http://www.cosmos.esa.int/web/meteoroids2016/social-programme.
For further questions, please contact us: Meteoroids2016@cosmos.esa.int
We are looking forward to seeing you in Noordwijk!
