Conference venue

The Conference will be hosted by CERLIS, the research centre on specialized discourse operating at the University of Bergamo, an institution where research has always been in the foreground and where various national and international conferences have already been organized (see http://www.unibg.it/cerlis ).

  

Equipment

The conference room is equipped with OHP, microphone and video projector for Powerpoint presentations – there is no need to bring your own laptop, but your presentation should be fully Windows compatible. Please make sure you bring copies of any handouts you may have, as last-minute photocopying is likely to be expensive.

 

Travel information

Bergamo is in Northern Italy, 50 Kms north-east of Milan, on the way to Lake Garda and Venice. Thanks to its international airport (sometimes advertised as ‘Milan-Orio al Serio’, or Milan-BGY), Bergamo can be reached by plane from many European cities; alternatively, participants may fly to Milan and take a train to Bergamo.
