In agreement with the International Advisory Committee, the conference location has been moved from Villasimius to Cagliari town.

The decision is motivated by the offer from the local Sardinian government to fund significantly the conference. In this way it will be possible to lower the conference fee, the organization costs and to increase, in particular, the possibility to support young people.

In addition, moving the conference to Cagliari facilitates considerably the transportation to/from Cagliari airport and gives access to a wide availability of alternative accommodation (budget hotels, b&bs, …) for participants with limited budget.

Conference Venue

The new conference venue is T-Hotel in Cagliari. The Hotel offers excellent conference facilities and accommodation ( Participants with limited budget will have a good choice of other nearby hotels and charming b&bs in the old town within walking distance.

Registration and call for abstracts

It will be open on January 16.
