Travel Details and Accommodation

Delegates can fly directly to Porto from any of the european airport platforms (Frankfurt, Heathrow, Gatwick, Orly, Charles-de-Gaulle, Amsterdam, Madrid, Brussels) and from many others cities in Europe and in the world.


For people arriving via Lisbon, they can reach Porto either by air, train, car rental or by Bus. Porto is 300 km North of Lisbon. Once at the airport in Porto, our suggestion is to take a Taxi to the city centre. The trip from the airport to most Hotels in Porto is about 15 minutes and should cost not more than 20,00 EUR. Alternatively, there are also cheaper Bus and Metro connections from the airport to the city centre.

The conference will be held at FEUP - Faculdade de Engenharia do Porto, Rua Dr. Roberto Frias, 4200-465 Porto. To reach this location delegates can take a taxi, the cost of which will be around 5,00 euro  from most hotels in Porto. Alternatively, there are several buses and metro from downtown to the site of the conference.

As for accommodation facilities in Porto, there are many hotels with prices ranging from 40,00 up to 150,00 per room and per night. Arrangements will be made with our local travel agency in order to coordinate this issue and to allow online booking. Daily bus transportation between the recommended hotels and FEUP will be available for delegates and registered accompanying persons.

You can see the hotels description HERE. For booking the hotel of your choice, please use the online facilities at:
