Traveling Information

Travel to and within Lisbon

Lisbon is easy to get to. It is a short flight away from most European cities, and is just as easily accessible by road, railway or sea. 
Lisbon International Airport, 7 km from the city centre, has daily flights to and from the major cities in Europe and the world. The Portuguese airline TAP-Air Portugal, as well as major international airlines, fly to and from Lisbon.

To access the city centre, from the airport, several options are available:


Hotel Reservation

Hotel reservation and booking will be directly managed by Agência Abreu, one of the meeting sponsors.

A more inexpensive option, mainly directed for students, could be the Almada Youth Hostel.

Transportation will be provided by the conference organization between hotels Almada Business, Mélia and Costa da Caparica and the conference venue.
