CogSIMA 2022 will be hosted by The University of Salerno, from Monday, June 06 to Friday, June 10, 2022.
University of Salerno
The University of Salerno (UNISA) is located a just few kilometers from Salerno City Center at the junction of multiple motorways for ease of access. At a sprawling 100,000 square meters, the university campus boasts modern facilities, efficient services, and many leisure activities. Salerno’s central location to a bay of the same name makes the city itself a focal point for tourism and seaside holidays, while its beautiful historic city center retains a medieval charm, offering a glimpse into its storied past. This unique combination of history and modernity make Salerno one of the most welcoming and livable cities in the world. Should you choose to venture beyond city limits, other world-famous attractions are nearby, such as the Amalfi Coast, Pompei, Paestum, and Napoli.
For additional details on the University and its surroundings, including campus maps and directions from surrounding cities, please visit the university web site here.
