Conference fees

We kindly ask participants to pay the conference and hotel fees to us directly when registering. Here is a breakdown of the fees:

Hotel

Participants will be accommodated in the Hotel Tritone (twin rooms, about 30 available), and in the Hotel Nettuno (twin rooms, about 10 available). We ask that participants choose from one of the following options:

Note that the cost for single room occupancy is quite high, so we encourage participants to share a twin room. Since the Hotel Nettuno is within two kilometres from the conference venue at Hotel Tritone, we would ask that the younger participants avail of this option.

Fee

Persons attending the conference should also pay the conference fee of 270 EUR. This pays towards the hiring of the conference theatre and poster boards, coffee and tea breaks, the social dinner, the excursion, the evening poster session buffet, and transport to and from the port of Ischia or the port of Casamicciola.

Accompanying persons

Accompanying persons not attending the conference itself are asked to pay a fee of 100 EUR (in addition to the hotel fee, as above). This pays towards the social dinner, the excursion, the evening poster session buffet, and transport to and from the port of Ischia or the port of Casamicciola.

Eating arrangements

Two evening meals are included in the conference fee for all participants: the social dinner on Thursday evening, and the evening poster session buffet on Tuesday, both held in Hotel Tritone. Participants who book accommodation options A or B also have four evening meals in the hotel Tritone included in their fee. Participants staying in Hotel Nettuno should instead eat at any of the restaurants/trattorie in Forio itself (it is possible to eat at hotel Tritone, but this is rather expensive). Breakfast is included in all hotel bookings.

For lunch, participants are free to do as they please: e.g.

Shuttle services

Shuttle buses will be arranged between the ports of Ischia or Casamicciola and the hotel (Tritone; Nettuno also?). Shuttles should depart on the evening of Sunday 6th Sept from the port, and from the hotel on Saturday 12th Sept. Otherwise, participants should avail of a taxi.

During the conference, a shuttle will leave every day from Hotel Nettuno for the conference venue in the morning, and return to Hotel Nettuno in the evening.

Invited talks: 45 minutes (including discussion time).

Contributed talks: 20 minutes (including discussion time)

Posters: poster boards of size 1m x 1m will be provided, which are suitable for posters of size portrait A0.
