The Conference will be held at the University of Catania, Italy. Founded in the 15th century, it was the first university established in Sicily and
one of the oldest in Europe. Today the University of Catania hosts about 60.000 students.
Catania is the second largest city in Sicily (population over 372,000) and is situated on the eastern coast, between the Mediterranean Sea
and Mount Etna, the largest and most active volcano in Europe. Founded by Greeks in the 8th century BC, Catania has numerous architectural
remains dating back to Greek, Roman and Norman ages. Today Catania is a modern commercial city famous in the world for its magnificent historical centre,
mainly built in Baroque style, which is also the scene of nightlife.
Catania Fontanarossa International Airport has direct connections to many international destinations and is only 3 km (10 minutes by bus)
from Catania City Centre. The weather in June/July is generally warm and sunny, promising you a pleasant stay. Starting from Catania,
a number of interesting historical sites and cultural destinations are easily reachable by highways and public transport.
Catania is surrounded by wonderful landscapes. Hiking on Mt. Etna will be a magnificent experience in contact with nature.
