Frequently Asked Questions

 

Where is the Conference Hotel?

The Conference will be in Bisceglie (Puglia), in particular Hotel Salsello. Some of the participant will be hosted at Hotel Nicotel, at walking distance from the conference.
Both hotels are on the seashore and have access to a beach.

Can I bring other people that will not attend the conference?

It is of course possible, however they will have to pay the conference fee to have access to lunches and coffee breaks during the sessions and transport from-to the airport. The additional fee for the trip and gala dinner can be paid separately, but it is not possible to partial selections of the above contributions, i.e. only lunches or only coffee breaks...

Will there be a shuttle form/to the Bari airport?

There will be a bus from the airport on Monday 12th (afternoon) and back on Sunday 18th (morning). The exact time will be announced later to accommodate as many people as possible.

My train/plane is not compatible with the schedule of the shuttle, what can I do?

By train: the train station in Bisceglie is on the main railway that crosses Apulia, hence it is fairly easy to find a train that suits your needs. The fastest way is to visit Trenitalia.

By plane: the best solution is to take a train to Bari Centrale and then a regional train to Bisceglie, for example this itinerary.

By car: the hotel has reserved parking space and, even if a car is not required, could be a good idea to rent a car to visit the nearby region during free time.

What can I see close to Bisceglie?

There are plenty of things to visits in Bisceglie, in Bari and in the region. Many antique churches and monuments, many beautiful beaches and landmarks, etc. A good starting point can be Trip Advisor

Can I arrive few days before and/or stay longer?

If not explicitly requested, the room will be booked from 12th to 18th. However feel free to contact the organization (as soon as possible) to modify this period.
