Venue and getting there
The training event will be held in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Catania. You can find full details on how to get the to the University here, however, for your information directions from centre of Catania (railway station) are:
"Take one of the buses no. 432, or 449, or 628 to the "Città Universitaria". Bus tickets must be bought before entering the bus, at newstands or tobacconists. (Two newstands are located inside the Station). Tickets cost about 0.80 euro each. Remember to stamp the ticket upon entering the bus. Enter the University Campus through the main gate, turn to the left, and "climb" the hill to the first crossing (after about 100 meters). At this crossing, turn to the left and walk for about 80 meters. The Department building is on your left (see picture)." Inside the building signs will indicate the way to the training room.
Please Note - This short 2 hour course will finish at 11.00, allowing at least 2 hours for participants to make their way back into the centre of Catania, to the User Forum venue at Le Ciminiere Convention Center (which is very close to the central railway station).
