08.08.05... I just visited www.e-flights.de a few days ago and found a flight to go to Sofia and back with Alitalia cheaper than on the Alitalia web site... Planning to fly to Geneva for the Nyon Congress? Browse this site and others on the web for cheap flights! It seems that Easyjet will fly to Sofia as from this autumn!

08.08.05... Are you coming with your wife and child? Your wife must pay EUR 150 as an accompanying person, but children under 7 pay nothing and between 7 and 15 pay 70 EUR to go to the closing dinner and to the excursion their parents get free if they register before 23.08.05...

24.08.08... Just a year to go! You might have seen on the news that there were terrible floods which have claimed lives in Switzerland in the last few days... Central Switzerland, Lucerne and Brienz in particular, have had a very hard time. Our FISAE president, Josef Burch, who lives in that area, is fortunately safe and sound...
In Western Switzerland, though the weather has been variable, it has not been so bad. Temperatures are cool for the season (about 15oC in the early morning and 25oC in the afternoon - normally, they should be about 3oC more). To give you a better idea of the weather, there are photos on the links below from each day one year earlier than the Nyon congress!

23 August 05 ... 24 August 05 ... 25 August 05 ...

26 August 05 ... 27 August 05 

03.10.05... Accomodation... I went with Michel Froidevaux to Nyon last Friday, and we visited the Civil Protection facility where congress participants can get a bed for 3 Euros per night (+ 1.5 Euros per blanket!). OK, it is not a three-star hotel, but not too terrible.

Please go to the page here and you will be able to see photos and more information...

12.10.05... Many people have been asking whether the traditional exhibition of ex-libris created in the last two years will be shown in Nyon... the answer is YES!
All artists who wish to send ex-libris are welcome, and not only those sent by the member societies will be accepted. All techniques are accepted except original drawings and photocopies. Two prints of each work submitted should be sent not later than April 1st 2006 to B. Junod for FISAE, 21 Route de Lullier, CH-1254 Jussy GE, Switzerland. The usual regulations as to size, inscriptions by artists on the back, etc. are the same as for the CGD ex-libris competition. The selection for the exhibition will be made by the organising committee of the congress. Three artists whose works were considered the finest will be offered a free excursion... if they attend the congress!

25.11.05... Go and visit http://www.fisae.org/nyonregistration.html See why you must register now and pay before June 1st... and  we have instituted a cheap option for artists and society committee members from the new EU countries, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, China, Turkey and the Balkans...
 

24.06.06 ... Oh dear, less than two months to go AND SO MUCH WORK STILL TO DO!!!

Go and take a look at the programme update... The Congress publications are going to be FANTASTIC!!! Just the catalogue of Japanese bookplates, totally trilingual, will be 200 pages... The Rabinovitch book will be a reference volume... But the others will also be really good because we have obtained sponsorship from several foundations and firms which will help us to see that the 'bag' will be unforgettable...
