VII Iberian Conference on Tribology

Conference Venue

FlagCampus FEUP

The conference will be held in the beautiful city of Porto, Portugal, at the new campus of the Faculty of Engineering, University of Porto, which is very convenient and well equipped for conferences in terms of facilities, transportation and proximity to hotels.

Situated on the banks of the Douro river, Porto is one of the oldest tourist destinations in Europe. Sloping steeply down towards the river with its remarkable bridges - one of them designed by Gustave Eiffel - it has been an inspiration to a variety of artists. Porto made its name over two centuries ago because of its connection with the port wine industry. Many areas in Porto, well planned and landscaped, have been dedicated to leisure, public gardens, sophisticated and attractive shopping areas and excellent Museums and Theaters, which justifies the city’s wish to be granted “World Heritage Status” by UNESCO.

Porto, the country´s second largest city, is in itself full of interest, but the district it heads, though largely industrialized, offers the visitor plenty to see. Along the coast, holiday resorts like the cosmopolitan beach of Espinho, busy ports like Matosinhos, with splendid seafood, or traditional fishing towns like Póvoa de Varzim, but where there is also an animated casino. Inland, for example, the quaint charm of Amarante, with 17th century mansions overlooking the river and famous for a kind of sweet egg pastries. Right next to Porto you can visit, in Vila Nova de Gaia, the lodges where the famous Port wine is blended and aged and where you can taste the different varieties, or you may choose to take a river cruise along the Douro. The whole district is filled with prosperous towns, as commerce and industry thrive there, but you can drive along many calm roads with wonderful views over the river or enjoy a rugged and still unspoilt coastline.
