Announcement of meeting of ISO/IEC JTC1/SC22/WG5

July 21-25, 1997

Technische Universität Wien, Prechtl-Saal
Karlplatz 13, Vienna, Austria

The next meeting of WG5 will be held at the Technical University of Vienna
from 21st to 25th July 1997.  Details of booking and travel arrangements
appear overleaf.

The major items of business are the completion of the Working Draft of Part
3 of the Fortran Standard, Conditional Compilation, in order that it can be
forwarded to SC22 shortly after the meeting for its first CD ballot, and
the revision of WG5 Strategic Plan for the period covering the development
of the Fortran 2000 Standard.

In view of JTC1's rapidly evolving postion regarding the electronic
distribution of documents, it is also appropriate to thoroughly review
WG5's electronic document procedures, both with regard to format and to
access control.

Heads of delegations are reminded that both the Convenor and the host (via
the local contact, Gerhard Schmitt - see overleaf) should be informed of
the members of their delegations no later than one month before the start
of the meeting.

Travel Arrangements:

By air:  Many major airlines fly to Vienna (Schwechat).

There are several ways of travelling from Schwechat Airport to the city - a
distance of around 19 km (12 miles).

The most comfortable, and the quickest, is to use the Vienna Airport Lines
express bus to the City Air Terminal.  This takes 20 minutes and costs ATS
70 (schillings).

A cheaper way is to use the rapid transit (S-Bahn) system.    This costs
ATS 34 (two zones) and takes about 30 minutes;  trains run every 30 minutes.

>From the city air terminal a taxi to the Hotel Kaiserhof (or the Technical
University) will cost around 60 ATS.  Alternatively you can take the
underground line U4 (direction Hütteldorf) from Landstrasse/Wien Mitte to
Karlsplatz/Oper, which is close to both the hotel and the Technical
University. If you have used the rapid train from the airport the
underground in Vienna is included.

A taxi from the airport to the hotel will cost about ATS 350.

By rail:  Vienna has several railway stations.

If you are arriving from western parts of Germany, France, England,
Netherlands, Scandinavia, etc, you will arrive at the Westbahnhof.  Some
trains from Hungary also arrive at the Westbahnhof.  From the Westbahnhof
take a taxi (about ATS 100) to the Hotel Kaiserhof (or the Technical
University) or underground line U3 and U2 (from Westbahnhof to

If you are arriving from Italy, Hungary, eastern parts of Germany, etc, you
will arrive at the Südbahnhof (sometimes also called the Ostbahnhof!).
From the Südbahnhof take a taxi (about ATS 100) to the Hotel Kaiserhof (or
the Technical University) or tram D directly to the Opera. From there you
can easily walk to the Hotel Kaiserhof (or the Technical University).

By car:  Vienna is introducing stringent car-parking regulations which are
expected to be in force by the time of the meeting.  These will restrict
parking in this area of Vienna to 90 minutes.  The local organiser (Gerhard
Schmitt) is attempting to make special arrangements for participants, but
bringing a car to Vienna is NOT recommended.  Anyone who expects to have a
car should contact Gerhardt Schmitt as soon as possible.

Local Contact:	This WG5 meeting is hosted by the Austrian Standards
Institute, ON, with Gerhard Schmitt as the local organizer.  He can be
contacted as follows:
