Hotel rooms at these rates are limited and early booking is advised. Please do not mail or FAX the Hotel Registration Form to ICTE.

Please do not send the ICTE Conference Registration Form to the Santa Fe Convention and Visitors Bureau in Santa Fe.

All sessions of the 15th International Conference on Technology and Education are "NO SMOKING" sessions. Delegates who wish to smoke may do so only in the designated areas.


Upon request, the Conference Secretariat for ICTE Santa Fe 1998 will be happy to send a letter of invitation to facilitate obtaining supporting funds or a visa for participation in the Conference. It should be understood that this letter cannot be considered as a commitment by the organizers to provide any financial support. Please contact the Conference Secretariat.


The Sweeney Center is accessible to mobility-impaired Delegates. If specialized individual services are required, please mark the relevant part of the Conference Registration Form, or contact the Conference Secretariat in advance.


Conference dress is informal. We expect that weather during ICTE will be pleasant with sunny, moderate days and cool nights but temperatures can be variable in Santa Fe at this time of year. Delegates should bring an umbrella, as occasional showers are a possibility this time of year, and a jacket and sweater are desirable for cool evenings.

ICTE delegates should remember that Santa Fe is over 7,000 feet above sea level; individuals should keep the altitude in mind, be cautious about exerting themselves unless they are used to such altitudes, and drink plenty of water.


E-mail access through the Internet will be available to Delegates.


The Registration Desks at the La Fonda Hotel will be open from 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 8, 1998, and every day throughout the Conference. The Opening Session will be at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 8 in the auditorium of the Sweeney Center. Following the Opening Session there will be a Welcome Reception hosted by ThinkQuest at a location that will be announced in the Registration Packet. The first session on Monday will start at 9:00 a.m. There will be a lunch break each day.


ICTE Santa Fe 1998 has selected Southwest Airlines as the official carrier for the 15th Annual ICTE Conference, and Southwest Airlines is offering all ICTE delegates and accompanying persons a special discount on roundtrip tickets to and from Albuquerque.

(Some fares require advance purchase and have limited seating, so call as soon as possible, or as soon as your travel plans can be finalized. Note that Southwest Airlines is a domestic US airline. Delegates should compare several options for connections to Albuquerque, as fares may vary, and international travelers may find several competitive options for connections to Albuquerque.)


Santa Fe – New Mexico’s capital -- lies about an hour’s scenic drive by automobile or bus north of Albuquerque. Several motor tours are available in Santa Fe, as well as numerous walking tours. Your hotel can provide more information about sightseeing in Santa Fe. For more information about things to see and do in Northern New Mexico, see the Northern New Mexico section later in this brochure.

Special airfares for ICTE Delegates will be available from Southwest Airlines. Ten major air carriers fly into Albuquerque International Airport, and all of the major car rental agencies have offices in Albuquerque. The Shuttlejack bus offers non-stop service from Albuquerque airport to Santa Fe ten times daily. In addition, hotel accommodations at conveniently located hotels have been reserved, and information and registration forms will be included in the Registration Brochure, which will be distributed in September and October, 1997.


ICTE Santa Fe 1998 will be located at the Sweeney Center, at 201 West Marcy, just a five minute walk from the Plaza, in Santa Fe. A walking map will be included with the registration packet you receive when checking in at the ICTE Registration Desk in Santa Fe.

Most delegates will fly into the Albuquerque airport. An area bus service – the Shuttlejack – offers ten trips daily between the Albuquerque airport and Santa Fe, and the bus will deliver you to your hotel in Santa Fe. When arriving at the Albuquerque airport, Delegates should check with the Information Desk / ICTE Desk in the baggage claim area, for the Shuttlejack schedule and related ICTE information. Registered delegates arriving on Saturday, March 7, and on Sunday, March 8, will be eligible for a special offer on round trip passes between the Albuquerque airport and Santa Fe. (Normal bus fare is $20 one way.) Check the ICTE web site for details on this offer.

Delegates are requested to note their flight arrival date and time in the space provided on the Registration Form if they plan to use the Shuttlejack service to Santa Fe, in order to facilitate planning for bus capacity and schedules.
