The workshop will take place in the Sardagna residence of the UniversitÓ of Trento. All the speakers (but those living in Trento) will be hosted there, starting from sunday 28 night. The Sardagna residence is an eagle nest on the mountains surrounding the town, with a beautiful sight on it; it is linked to Trento by a nearly vertical cableway. From the railway station to the cableway lower station it takes some ten minutes on foot, and from the upper station of the cableway to the residence just one minute. The last run of the cableway is at 10:30 p.m. A taxi ride from the station to Sardagna will cost some 12 to 15 euros. If you let us know when you will arrive we will send someone to pick you at the station.
The best way to reach Trento is actually by train, as it is located on the main line connecting Italy and Germany (approximately 1 hour from Verona). On the site http://www.trenitalia.it you will find the train schedule. If you come by plane, the closest airports are Verona and Innsbruck.
In case of necessity, the phone number of the CEEL in Trento is +39 0461882246, and that of the Sardagna center is +39 0461 261671
