1. INTRODUCTION
---------------


"ERROR IN LINE '99" is a demoscene-related convention (or party), which will
continue the traditional line of Easter conventions. The convention will 
mainly focus on alternative computersystems, as Acorn, Atari, Amiga and C64. 

Our general aim is to offer a good surrounding for a meeting of demo-
sceners and  computerfreaks. So, you can expect some days of interesting 
conversations and creativity. But do not forget, we can just offer a good 
surrounding. 

However, we hope to make this convention a remarkable and funny event and
we will try to keep it as noncommercial as possible.

So let's have a look at the facts:


............................................................................

2. THE TIME
-----------


The convention will start on:    Friday, 2.April 1999, 03:00 PM.
And the official ending is:      Monday, 5.April 1999, 11:00 AM.


............................................................................

3. THE PLACE
------------


We have chosen a very atmospheric and comfortable location, which is situa-
ted in the centre of Dresden.
For instance it takes 5 minutes to walk to the central railway station or 
15 minutes to walk to the historical core of our town, which is really worth
a visit, by the way.



HOW TO GET TO THE PARTY PLACE?
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

If you want to come by CAR, there are TWO POSSIBILITIES how to get to the
party place: 


I.

If you take the A4 from "EISENACH", then leave the motorway at the EXIT 
"DRESDEN-ALTSTADT." Then always follow the traffic signs which lead to "PRAG".

After a while, you will reach a street, called "NUERNBERGER EI." This street
is easily recognizable, because it is a big street (4 tracks), which is 
divided by a big "GREEN ISLE".
Go straight there, till you reach the first TRAFFIC LIGHT AFTER the "NUERN-
BERGER EI". Then turn LEFT here (direction: Hauptbahnhof (central station).

Drive down the hill and you will see a RUSSIAN CHURCH on the right side. 
Turn LEFT, after you passed this Russian Church. Now you are driving on the
"Reichenbachstrasse".

Finally turn RIGHT into the next street and look for a parking place.
Then follow the SIGNS to get to the location.


II.

The second possibility, if you come by car, is to take the A4 from BAUTZEN.
Leave the motorway at the EXIT "DRESDEN-HELLERAU". Then turn RIGHT and always
go STRAIGHT till you reach the BAHNHOF NEUSTADT (railwaystation "Neustadt").
Drive through under the railway and turn RIGHT.

Then go STRAIGHT again. You will drive over a big BRIDGE and after some 
minutes of driving, you will reach the HAUPTBAHNHOF (central station). Turn
RIGHT here and drive through under the station. 

Then you will see a "CONRAD ELECTRONICS" - building on the right side. 
After this building, turn RIGHT into the next small street. Turn LEFT again, when you
reach the next crossroad.
Go straight then, and after ca. 200 meters, look for a parking place.
Then follow the signs to get to the parking place.



If you come by TRAIN, you will find the party place very easily. Either ask
people for way or just use the following description:

Leave the railway station through the MAINDOORS. Then turn right. Go 
straight forward and you will walk under a bridge. Then you will cross a 
street and you will stand in front of the "CONRAD" - building.
Now just walk along the building on its left side and you will automatically
come on a sidewalk, situated beside a bigger street.
Now just go straight. If you see a meadow on the right side after some 50 m
walk, you will be on the right way. Keep on going straight and you will 
see two yellow phonebooths on the light right side. In face of those 2 phone-
booths you will be able to see the party place's entrance doors, beside a 
sign "GAG 18". 

We will put up SIGNS, so you will find the way easier.



And if you want to come by PLANE, you should inform us as early as possible,
so that we can take you from the airport Dresden-Klotzsche to the party 
place by car.



If you still have nasty PROBLEMS, to find the location, you can also call 
our EMERGENCY HOTLINE (from 2.April - 5.April ONLY): (0351) 4719085
