This will be the ninth one in the series of conferences entitled “International Conference in Abstract Harmonic Analysis”.  National Sun Yat–sen University held the fifth one in 2009.  The first three conferences were held at Koc University in Istanbul, Turkey, in 2002, 2004 and 2006; the fourth one was at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2007; the sixth at the Chern Institute, Nankai University, Tianjin, China in 2011; the seventh one was held in Granada, Spain in 2013, and the eighth one was held in Halifax, 2015.

 

This conference will especially pay attention to the recent rapid development of the interrelationship between Abstract Harmonic Analysis, Classical Harmonic Analysis and Applied Analysis.

 

Special event: To express our appreciation for his great contribution to abstract harmonic analysis, we will celebrate the 75th birthday of Professor Anthony To-Ming Lau in the banquet on June 27, 2018.  Everyone is invited to participate to the banquet that evening.

Accommodation: We have made a special deal with the 4-star Kingship Hotel (25 minutes to venue on foot, and 5 minutes from the Kaohsiung Metro Orange Line O2 Yanchengpu Station).

 

Banquet: The banquet, free of charges to all participants and spouses and students, will be in the evening of June 27, 2018 at the Kingship Hotel.

 

Excursion: An half-day tour to local attractions is planned (probably in the afternoon of June 29, 2018).  Participants can indicate their interests in the online registration forms. 

Lodging:  Chung Cheng Hotel (中正飯店:高雄市鹽埕區大仁路7 , +886-7-521-2266).  These two hotels are door to door, and close to the O1 metro station.  See maps.

 

Banquet:  The Workshop Banquet will be taken place at 19:00, July 11, 2012, at the Kingship Hotel (漢王飯店, 高雄市七賢三路98 No.98 Cisian 3rd.Rd Kaohsiung, +886-7-5313131), which is another hotel also close to the O1 metro station.

 

Maps:

·     Click and fetch a campus map of the venue (International Research Building A6 in the map); visit also Department of Applied Math., National Sun Yat-sen University, Kaohsiung 80424, Taiwan (maps in Chinese or English versions), travel instructions to the campus, and a map of the Kaohsiung city.

Travel Information:

·     If you travel by air, please make sure that

              your final destination is Hsiaokang International Airport at Kaohsiung.

The airport code of Kaohsiung Airport on your ticket is KHH. There is another (much bigger) Taoyuan International Airport  (previously known as Chiang Kai-shek International Airport) located at Taoyuan, 1 hour to Taipei downtown, and 5 hours highway drive from Kaohsiung. 

 

There are frequent scheduled flights connecting Kaohsiung (airport code: KHH) to other cities.  In particular, there are about 10 flights a day from Hong Kong to Kaohsiung, and another 10 flights from Kaohsiung to Hong Kong, via the China Airlines (CI), Mandarin Airline (AE), Cathay Pacific (CX) and Dragon Airlines (KA).  If you want to fly to Taipei (airport code: TPE), though not advised, and plan to take a high speed train (90 minute one way) from Taipei to Kaohsiung, please arrange your flight to arrive in Taipei before 7pm to catch the last train (departing at 22:35pm, and arriving at Zuoying HSR station at 23:39pm)).  You need to take an airport metro train train or an air shuttle bus connecting the airport and the high speed train station at Taoyuan for approximately 40 minutes one way. 

 

Upon arriving at the Kaohsiung, you can take a metro train from the KHH airport station / Zuoying HSR station to the downtown Kaohsiung, the Kingship Hotel at O2 station, the university campus at O1 station (‘O’ for Orange color).   Alternatively, you can take a taxi to the hotel, or the university (known locally as Chung Shan University: ‘Chung Shan’ is the other name of Dr. Sun Yat-sen.)   You pay by meter plus a fixed airport taxi service charge (NT $50).  The cost for a single trip from Kaohsiung Airport to the hotels, or to the University is about NT $350 + 50.  Paying tips is not necessary in Taiwan.  However, you have to pay by local currency (New Taiwan Dollars NT$30 = US$ 1 approx).  We suggest you to make money exchange at the KHH airport.  The rate is same as in downtown banks there.

 

·     If you travel by train, you can take a taxi from Kaohsiung Train Station to the University for about NT $200 per single trip. Or you can take the No. 248 bus and get off from the bus at the University Tunnel Entrance bus stop. The fare is NT $12. You can also use the metro and stop at the O1 station.

·     If you use the highspeed train, you can transfer to the metro at the Kaohsiung highspeed train station.  The campus is in 10 minute walking distance from the O1 (Orange One) metro station.   

·    If you travel by car, exit at the Chung Cheng Road rump on Highway 1. Then turn right at the first traffic light and you will be on Chung Cheng Road. Follow Chung Cheng Road until the end for about 20 minutes. Soon after you pass the Love River Bridge, make a right turn at the loop. You will be on Dagung Road and after a few blocks, you will be on the joint of a `T' shape bridge. Make a left turn there. Drive straight and make a right turn at Lin Hai 2nd Road. After four traffic lights you will arrive at the University Tunnel Entrance (for bicycles and walkers only). Make a left turn and follow the `S' sharp river side Lienhai road. About 5 minutes you will see the Main Entrance of the National Sun Yat-sen University. Tell the guards there you are attending an international mathematics workshop at the International Research Building, and then you will know how to drive to the venue.


Visas and other information:

Foreign nationals may obtain tourist visas to enter Taiwan if they hold foreign passports or travel documents valid for more than six months. Please visit Bureau of Consular Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs or a Taiwan Embassy in your country for visa application. Visit also Information on Republic of China Visitor Visas.

30-day to half-year visa-free privileges are afforded to citizens of many countries and 30-day landing visas are afforded to citizens of other few countries. For any further information, please visit the website of Bureau of Consular Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

One may find other useful information from the web page of the Tourism Bureau, ROC at http://www.tbroc.gov.tw. A brief history of Taiwan, as well as travel information, is available there, too. The temperature of Kaohsiung in July is about 25--33 degrees C.  No heavy clothing is in need.

 

Currency Exchange:

The current exchange rate is about US $1= NT $30 (New Taiwan Dollars). It is best to make exchange at Kaohsiung Airport right after you walk out from the custom. You can also make exchange at banks in downtown or at the hotel.  Almost no service charge or surplus applies when you do it in a bank or at the airport. You can change it back to US dollars or Euros or other currencies at the airport again before you leave the country.  One can also draw local currency from ATM, but we do NOT check or guarantee.  Credit cards are very popular here.

 Notes:

1.           A shuttle bus will pick up participants from Kingship Hotel to the venue at 8:10 and 8:40 am, Monday, June 25, 2018, ONLY ONE morning.

2.           The Opening of the Workshop will be 9:10am, Monday, June 25, 2018, and followed by first talk immediately.

Other informations:

1.            Electricity is supplied at 110 V - 60 Hz AC with American standard plugs.

2.            Local weather in Juue is hot and humid. It is easy to reach over 33C in day time, and hardly drop below 20C in night time. We hope we would have no typhoon during the workshop.

3.            Computer LCD projectors, overhead transparency projectors, real object projectors, black and white blocks are all available.

4.            We use Google and gmails everywhere in Taiwan. We also use Line, whatsapp, wechat, Skype, FB or MSM/Yahoo Messengers. Public and free network connections are provided in venue and the hotel.  Phone cards are now popular and cheap in Taiwan.  One can buy some at, e.g., the 24-hour operated `Family Mart’ chained store in campus.  Mobile phone networks are everywhere. 

5.            English speakers in Kaohsiung survive easily, and it is not too difficult to find the hotel/campus/attractions by yourself and metro.

6.            You can swim in the beach inside the campus nearby the venue, although you might not have time.
