     Accompanying Persons Programme

A programme for the partners of those attending 8ICML is being planned by our social committee. The programme will include a ticket for the main social event of the congress - dinner and music on a flotilla of luxurious boats as they sail through the heart of London from Chelsea down to the Millennium Dome in Greenwich.

There will also be other optional activities while the congress is in session. It is expected that an accompanying person’s registration will be priced at around 100.

Feedback Please: If you or your partner are interested in participating in the accompanying person’s programme then why not take this opportunity to tell us your views and preferences? If you would like to see particular sites, if there are particular types of activity you would like to see included in the programme please tell Linda Lisgarten, chair of the ICML social committee at
