VENUE

The Congress will take place at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation Conference Center in Lisbon, Portugal, July 26-31, 2020.



The Gulbenkian Foundation hosts world class International cultural events, concerts and conferences and offers outstanding facilities, including an auditorium with extraordinary acoustics designed for the Orquestra Gulbenkian. It is fully handicapped-accessible with no physical barriers to impede attendance of members with physical disabilities.

In our registration form, we will provide potential attendees with sensory disabilities an opportunity to self-identify so that we can make arrangements for any assistance that may be needed to fully integrate these individuals into the Congress. Meeting rooms hold from about 150 to 1000 participants and all posters will be displayed two days eachin two separate sessions within the Gulbenkian Conference Hall, adjacent to the auditoria and meeting rooms. The Gulbenkian Gardens offer numerous seating areas of different sizes and configurations, and they are available for student mentoring meetings, lunches and other informal interactions throughout the meeting. Lunches, coffee breaks and the conference banquet (provided as part of the registration fee) will include culturally-sensitive menu choices. The Gulbenkian is easily reached by public transportation, including road, subway, rail, bus, and is located in the heart of Lisbon.

The Lisbon Airport is only ½ hr from the Gulbenkian and near-by accommodations.
