Participants of the conference should make travel and accommodation arrangements well in advance of the conference date. A wide variety of hotels are reachable on foot within a 10-15 min. radius of both conference venues (Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto and Seminário de Vilar). 

Below is a map with the conference venues as well as some of the suggested hotels in the area.
