                  General Assembly Information
                  ****************************

The ICA's 1997 General Assembly will be held at the 
Geneva International Conference Centre, 15 rue Varembe 
(tel.+41-22- 791 11 11; fax +41-22-733 81 06).

The General Assembly begins on Monday, 15 September, 
at 10 a.m. and is scheduled to close on Tuesday, 16 September, 
at 17:00.  A preliminary agenda is included with this 
documentation.

A schedule of other meetings taking place in conjunction with 
the General Assembly is also printed below.

As the Conference Centre is not open on the weekend preceding 
the General Assembly, registration will take place between 8 a.m. 
and 10 a.m. on Monday, 15 September.  Participants are 
encouraged to arrive early, and to make all necessary payments 
in advance, in order to avoid delays.  In order to facilitate 
registration, an ICA registration desk will be set up in the 
arrivals area of the Geneva Airport on Saturday, 13 September,
and Sunday, 14 September.  Participants arriving on those days 
are encouraged to register at the airport.  

The Geneva International Conference Centre (known locally 
by the French acronym CICG) is situated in the heart of the 
district where the international  organisations are located.  
It is a five- minute bus ride from the central railway station 
(Gare de Cornavin); buses 5 and 8 run approximately every 
ten minutes and stop just in front of the Conference Centre. 
Bus number 8 also continues to the International Labour 
Organisation and to the World Health Organisation, which 
are both just a few minutes' walk from the ICA Head Office 
at 15 route des Morillons.

Additional documentation concerning the General Assembly 
is contained in this report.  The ICA's Annual Report is 
contained in a separate issue of the Review of International 
Co-operation (number 2, 1997).  Minutes, reports, and 
additional documentation arising from the General Assembly 
will be printed in issue number 4 of the Review.
