Tsukuba is located about 60 km north of Tokyo and about 40 km
northwest of the
Narita International Airport .
The Tsukuba Center and the above mentioned hotels
are in the central area of Tsukuba.
How to reach Tsukuba is explained in the web page
The easiest way is to take a direct bus service, called the Airport
Liner "NATT'S", from the Narita Airport through Tsukuba Center to
Tsuchiura Station. Tickets are available at the "Airport Limousine
Keisei" counter on the 1st floor in the arrival lobby.
( Remind that the "Airport Limousine Bus" counter on the same floor,
by another company, does not take care of the NATT'S bus service.)
The fare is 2,540 yen per person.
The bus leaves the Airport every ~ 90 minutes
(see the time schedule), and it takes about one hour and 40 minutes to
Tsukuba Center. There are four bus stops: "Shin-Tone-Machi" (which is
skipped occasionally), "Hitachino-Ushiku Station", "Tsukuba Center"
and "Tsuchiura Station"; you should ride off the bus at Tsukuba Center
(not Tsuchiura Station). For alternative ways to come to Tsukuba,
please consult our web page.
The last NATT'S bus leaves the Airport at 20:00.
All the speakers, in the plenary, parallel and poster sessions, are
kindly asked to write their contribution to the proceedings. According
to the tradition, the proceedings will be published in Nuclear Physics B - Proceedings Supplement.
Further information will be given at the conference.

with "Subject: Lattice 2003 arrival time"
and details of the arrival flight (flight number, arrival time, etc.),
no later than July 4 .
The LOC is deeply concerned with the recent rapid spread of SARS.
Although no SARS patients have been reported in Japan so far, social
responsibility of an international conference is high. We are facing a
dilemma between our sincere desire to encourage world-wide exchange of
research activities and the responsibility to keep the safety of all
participants and the people around. We would like to ask all of you to
(wash hands regularly, refrain dangerous places -- hospital, air port, ... -- as much as possible, etc.)
and to watch your health conditions critically.
When you find possibility of
infection, no matter how small it is, please cancel the participation.
The quarantine process at Narita Airport is described in

In Tsukaba, the rainy season started in early June, which
