Thanks Sarah. The council is hereby informed. For the record, Inria pays for the lunch on Mo, Tu and We.

> Hiya!  I realize that we haven't yet set the per diem rate for the Paris meeting.  The usual formula for doing this is to take 70% of the U.S. State Department rate & then split out amongst the three meals. So, the State per diem rate is $173 (http://aoprals.state.gov/web920/per_diem_action.asp?MenuHide=1&CountryCode=1087):
> 70% of $178 = $125
> Breakfast/morning | 25% = $31
> Lunch/afternoon | 35% = $44
> Dinner/evening | 40% = $50
> Does this seem reasonable?  If so, please pass those rates on to the Council.  The reimbursement form is on-line at <http://www.tei-c.org/Admin/TEI_travel_form.pdf>.  Fill it in, print it out, sign it, and send it to me with receipts for hotels, transportation, and other non-meal costs.
> You do not need to submit receipts for meals, since we reimburse a set amount for each meal claimed.  If you did not pay for a meal (e.g., someone paid for you), you should not ask for reimbursement for that meal. If you paid for a group meal, you must still submit receipts & a list of who was included.
