Two offers to host TPHOLs 2002 were received:
The voting to choose between the two bids closed on 16th February 2001 and the results were as follows:
|First preference votes||45||36|
|Second preference votes||17||21|
Some voters did not express a second preference.
Since the Virginia group received an overall majority of first preference votes, they are the winners.
A summary of the original bids is given below.
|Location:||Radisson Hotel, Hampton, Virginia, U.S.A.|
|Dates:||19-23 August 2002|
We plan to use the same format as previous TPHOLs conferences with
Category A full research refereed papers and Category B work in progress
reports. We will seek publication of Category A papers in LNCS.
Category B papers will be published in a NASA Technical Report.
We will also seek sponsors and grants from external organizations for student bursaries.
|Location:||Lam Woo International Conference Centre, Hong Kong Baptist University, Hong Kong, China|
|Dates:||Last week of August 2002|
|Format:||Three to four days with a workshop on a related theme held at UNU/IIST in Macau immediately before or after the conference.|
Following the tradition of TPHOLs, we will include in the conference a forum
for presenting work-in-progress in the form of short presentations plus
As in previous years, we will publish the proceedings as a volume of Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science. The proceedings will be prepared in time for the conference.
We will do our best to keep the cost of attending the conference low. Thanks to the extensive flight network and very wide range of accommodation, cheap flights and cheap room rate will not be too difficult to find. On the other hand, we will actively seek sponsors, especially for students, as soon as we are given the honour to host the conference.
