Electrical Supply 

Electric power is standardized in all states across the USA. It is set at 110 Volts and 60 cycles. 220 Volt power is used in homes only for large appliances like stoves, water heaters and clothes dryers. It is not normally available for personal appliances.

Standard electric plugs have two flat blades. The plugs on some newer appliances have a third round grounding pin. Almost all homes and commercial buildings are equipped with electrical receptacles that can accommodate either type of plug.

You may need an adaptor and power converter
If you bring any electrical appliance to the USA, you may need an adaptor to fit the US electrical receptacles. You may also need a converter to change the voltage from 110 volts to 220 volts.

Most common appliances will function with either 50 or 60 cycle current. Electrical frequency can affect electric clocks, audio equipment and some other electronic gear. You should check your electrical equipment for compatibility with 60-cycle current before you bring it to the USA.

Liability & Insurance

The Conference Secretariat and Organisers cannot accept liability for personal accidents or loss of or damage to private property of participants. Upon registration, participants agree that neither the Organizing Committee nor the Conference Secretariat assumes any liability.

Participants are advised to take out their own personal travel and health insurance for their trip.

Currency & Exchange

The unit of currency is US Dollars (sign: $ - code: USD)

Even though you may find some banks which will accept your currency in exchange for US Dollars, you are more likely to come across exchange bureaus, which specialize in this type of transaction. Make sure you have some ID with you. Your credit card will enable you to withdraw cash in US Dollars 24 hours a day at the hundreds of automatic cashpoints in the city. They often give you the choice of instructions in French, English or other languages. Make sure you check beforehand with your own bank however, because you may be charged for this service.

Safety & Security

Please do not leave bags or suitcases unattended at any time, whether inside or outside the session halls. Hotels recommend that you use their safety deposit boxes for your valuables.
