Access to the conference is free: there is no admission

Florence can be easily reached by airplane, at the Amerigo
Vespucci Airport. Another comfortable destination is the Galileo Galilei
Airport in Pisa (only 50 minutes by direct train from Florence). For

The conference venue is located in the heart of Florence,
in the Rectorate of the University of Florence in Piazza San Marco,
4. It is only a 10 minutes walk from the Florence Central Railway Station
in Santa Maria Novella and from the Airport Shuttle stop, situated in
front of the station. Several buses connect the railway station with
Piazza San Marco as well (lines 1, 7, 10, 17, 25, 32, 33). The bus fare
is 1 €.
