The registration will be open each day before sessions start (during the lunch approx) and during the breaks. 


Registration includes both a lunch and a coffee break a day. 
Due to the University COVID-19 prevention regulations, it is not allowed to eat and drink inside the university rooms. It is possible to eat and drink only at the designated points (cafeteria, coffee shops, restaurants, vending machines, outside the buildings).

Since the cellar is near the University, we will go there directly from the University after the first conference day (we will depart at about 6.30 or 7.00 pm), without going back to the hotels.
The shuttle bus will transfer the guests from the university to the cellar, and then after the event will accompany guests to the center of Salerno, where they can reach their hotels. 


The banquet will be held at the Saint Joseph Resort on Wednesday, May 8th at 8 pm.
After the conference, the shuttle bus will accompany the guests to the center of Salerno where they can reach their hotels (at 6.30 pm). The bus will then depart from the Salerno City center at 8 pm to reach the resort which is just 15 minutes away.

Hotel and Transfer

We suggest you stay in the center of Salerno to enjoy the city, the seaside, and the attractions, especially in the evening. Here you can find a selection of the suggested hotels.

The conference venue (the University) is located in Fisciano which is about 20 minutes far by bus. However, we will guarantee a free shuttle between Salerno city center (from both Novotel Est Arechi and Salerno Piazza Vittorio Veneto, in front of Salerno Train Station) and the University each day. 

The details about the shuttle bus and the timetable are on this page Venue.

From the terminal bus at the University, you will find both instructions and our volunteer that will guide you to the conference room
There are some exceptions for the days on which we planned tours and banquets. Read below or visit this page
