Conference Venue

Lisbon (“Lisboa” in Portuguese) is the capital city of Portugal, located in the Atlantic coast. Accommodating over 3000 years of history, it is recognized as one of Europe’s cosmopolitan centers, known for its light, atmosphere and climate, with a beauty far extending beyond its famed monuments, where centuries of cultural influences mingle with modern trends creating spectacular contrasts. More information about Lisbon can be found at wikipedia and at the Lisbon Tourist Office.

The conference will be held at the Congress Center of Pavilhão Atlântico, on the grounds of the Park of Nations (Parque das Nações), where Expo '98 was held and home of the Lisbon Oceanarium.

You can check the conference location in Google Maps or Via Michelin. If you have Google Earth, click here to download the placemark file and fly to the conference site.
