There will be half a day excursion to the Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland's only World Heritage Site. The coastal 
scenery adjacent to the causeway is some of the most beautiful and awe inspiring that you are likely to find 
anywhere. We have hired a bus to take us there. We would be leaving at 1:30pm sharp. It would take 2 hours to get to 
Giants Causeway. We would be there for 2 to 3 hours depending on the weather (please bring along your 
waterproof gear!).
 
 There will be an (informal) workshop dinner on Thursday. We will reserve a (nice) restaurant. The participants will pay for 
themselves. In the registration, Please let us know whether you would be coming to the excursion and would take part in 
the dinner.
 
Northern Ireland has been tipped by Lonely Planet as one of the must-see countries to visit in 2007, in a book 
published this year. Northern Ireland is featured in the ‘Go List’ section - a chapter dedicated to detailing the hot
destinations for the coming year. The country is described as, “abuzz with life: the cities are pulsating, the 
economy is thriving and the people, the lifeblood that courses through the country, are in good spirits.”
Belfast is also mentioned in another part of the book as one of the top ten ‘Cities on the Rise’.
