Summer Institute: From July 4 to July 6, a series of lectures will be provided for PhD students and other advanced students of argumentation. This lecture series will be coordinated by Frans van Eemeren, who will also be one of the lecturers. The program will be published later on our website.
International arrivals: Zhenjiang is a city near Nanjing and not far from Shanghai, both of which can be reached easily by international airlines. These two cities are certainly worth a longer visit before or after the conference. Among their touristic attractions are: the Confucius Temple and the Mausoleum of Sun Yat-sen, who is viewed as the father of modern China (Nanjing), and the Bund, the famous boulevard along the river Yang Tse, and Xintiandi (Shanghai). If desired, on July 2, some Chinese students who speak English can show you around in small groups.
Transportation: There is easy transport by train both from Nanjing to Zhenjiang and from Shanghai to Zhenjiang. In addition, we will make sure that on June 28 there are some shuttle buses available that can take you from Nanjing Lukou International Airport or Shanghai Pudong International Airport to the campus of Jiangsu University, and on July 2, they can take you back.
Hotel accommodation: From June 27 to July 2, housing will be provided on campus at the University Hotel of Jiangsu University. This arrangement will be included in the conference fee. If you want to stay in Nanjing or Shanghai before or after the conference, you can easily book your own hotel accommodation in accordance with your own wishes via the Internet.
Meals: As you will know, China has a famous and multi-varied cuisine, and meals are not expensive. During the conference, all meals will be provided to the participants of the conference on campus. This is included in the conference fee.
The Conference fee for the 10th ISSA Conference, which includes all meals (lunch, dinner) during the three days of the conference and a city tour, is € 375 (or $ 440 or RMB 2800 Yuan), and € 200 (or $ 235 or RMB 1500 Yuan) for PhD researchers and MA-students.

All others will have to pay 10 percent more.
