Fourth International Round-Table Conference on 
Computational Models of Creative Design (HI'98)

6-10 December 1998
Heron Island, Queensland, Australia

Draft Program

Sunday 6 December 
08:50-10:00 Brisbane to Gladstone - FlightWest Airlines YC710
If you are not on this flight (e.g. driving to Gladstone or arriving in Gladstone earlier), be at Gladstone airport at 10:00. Alternatively, if you are taking the catamaran, you can meet us at the Marina at 10:30.
10:15 Helicopter bookings:
On arrival at Gladstone airport, proceed to the Marine Helicopters desk (near the FlightWest counter) and identify yourself. Helicopters will leave as soon as all pre-booked people have arrived. The journey takes approximately 35 minutes and hold 4-5 people.
Catamaran bookings:
On arrival at Gladstone airport, proceed outside the terminal to shuttle (bus) for the Marina. It is approximately 15 minutes by shuttle between the airport and the Marina. 
11:00-14:00 Catamaran to Heron Island
(Note: there is one hour time difference between mainland Queensland and Heron Island.
The catamaran journey is approximately two hours.)
12:00-14:00 Lunch for registrants arriving on the helicopter
14:00-15:00 Light buffet lunch for registrants arriving on the catamaran
