Dear all
I trust all systems go and that those that are on their way to South Africa are ready for the ISIAME 2016.
Some general comments
The programme that has been sent out some time ago, stays more or less the same - one or two people can't come anymore thus there will be ample time for the talks and posters session.  Every registered person will get a hard copy of the abstract/programme book that will be handed out at registration
Also remember that all full papers will have to be uploaded onto the web page as instructed under the ISIAME web heading: Proceedings
The welcome function on Sunday afternoon is at the iThemba labs and a bus will collect the delegates at the Townhouse hotel. Raquel Richardson and myself will be available to assist
Weather forecasts for Monday to Thursday show rain and we hope the Tuesday trip will however be nice. The weather is very unpredictable in the Cape and one can get 4 seasons in one day. I rain coat is often better than an umbrella as the wind can blow in gusts
Various questions were asked about transfers to the hotels and I am adding the info that is on the ISIAME web again to ensure everyone can get to the venue easily
Our Tuesday tour: A rough summary is added and we trust it will work out fine. Raquel and mmyself thought of a relative "cheap" lunch in Simonstown which will fit into our budget, but this is open and we will decide when everyone is there

The Peninsula

Clifton & Camps Bay

Twelve Apostles Mountain Range


Hout Bay

Chapman’s Peak Drive


Ostrich viewing

Cape Point

Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve

Penguin colony (optional)

Simons Town

Kalk Bay


False Bay

The Wine Route

Stellenbosch orientation

Wine tasting

Cellar Tour

Opportunity to purchase wine




Lunch (will be decided on)

Drinks (except 2 bottles of water per person)

Entrance fee: Table Mountain and Penguin Colony.

I trust it will be a fantastic symposium

Get a Taxi on Arrival at Cape Town International Airport 
As you exit the arrivals hall, there are several transfer / taxi companies that can assist with transfers. 
· Always ensure you discuss and set the rate before your departure. 
· Ensure you are using a reputable company with a stand / demarcated area and not an individual posing as a taxi driver. 
· Foreign exchange facilities are available at the Airport or you can pre-pay at the taxi / transfer counter with your credit card.
MyCiti bus: These busses leave the airport about every half hour - when outside the terminal building you will see them right in front of the building. The closest stop to the venue is in Adderleystreet and the trip takes about half an hour. Unfortunately it is a few blocks from the venue but change-overs are possible and taxis are also available at the Adderley. The webpage is: where all relevant info will be found
