Tower of Belém Venue: Lisboa

Lisboa is the capital of Portugal and lies on the north bank of the Tagus Estuary, on the European Atlantic coast. It is the westernmost city in continental Europe. Greater Lisboa has an area of approximately 1,000 km2. The city lies more or less in the centre of the country, approximately 300 km from the Algarve in the south and 400 km from the northern border with Spain. Lisboa offers a wide variety of options to the visitor, including beaches, countryside, mountains and areas of historical interest only a few kilometres away from the city centre. Due to the influence of the Atlantic Ocean, Lisboa has a pleasant climate throughout the year. The agreeable temperatures in the summer months are an open invitation for a walk by the river, or to spend an afternoon in one of the many street cafés to be found all over the city. Although the temperatures may fall somewhat in the autumn and winter months, sunshine is almost always a constant feature. Approximately 600,000 people live in Lisboa. However, if one includes the various satellite towns, the population of Greater Lisboa rises to approximately 1.9 million people.

The Conference will take place in Lisboa, Portugal, in the Complexo Interdisciplinar II building, Campus of Lisbon University.

Conference location and some hotels nearby 

Lisbon is located in the front of Tagus river very near from the Atlantic. It is easily reachable by plane (Lisboa International Airport) and by train.



Workshop participants are requested to make their own arrangements. A number of rooms have been appointed in various hotels of the center. Please see the Lisboa tourist information web-site for information about accommodation in Lisboa.
