Anyone wishing to stay in Glasgow well after BIANISOTROPICS'97 should be aware that the International Rotarian Conference will commence on 15 June 1997. There is practically no accommodation available anymore from that day onwards and it is possible that the situation will affect the days immediately leading up to that date as time goes by.
