Travel, Accomodation and Venue

The workshop will take place at the Institute for Cognitive Science and Technology (ISTC-CNR) branch, located at:
Via Nomentana 56, 00161 Rome
(close to the city center - map)

It is very easy to reach this place from the central train station (Termini) both by subway and by bus:
  • five minute walk from "Policlinico" subway stop on the BLUE (B) line;
  • very close to "Nomentana/Regina Margherita" bus stop of the "90 Labia-Termini" express line.
If you are flying to the Leonardo da Vinci airport (Fiumicino), you can take the "Leonardo Express" train which connects directly to the Termini train station (then follow the instructions above). Also the smaller airport of Ciampino provides a (private) shuttle bus service to Termini station.


The following are just some suggestions about hotels which are reasonably close to the workshop venue.
