The Conference will take place at the:

El Faro Hotel
Porto Conte - Alghero (SS) - 07041 Italy      
Tel: +39 079 942010
Fax: +39 079 942030


The Hotel is located beside an Aragonese Tower in a unique geographic position, in a peaceful environment surrounded by a natural park. It has been built by the famous architect (Simon Mossa), who also conceived and built in the same region of Sardegna the 'Escala del Cabirol', that permits to reach (from the earth) the 'Neptun Caves' with the famous 670 steps.

We invite the participants to book for a room before the
15 June 2008 if they wish to stay in the same hotel in which the Conference will take place taking advantage of special prices. The El Faro Hotel offered us a dedicated price if the clients will conclude the reservation within the established deadline. After the 15 June the Hotel will not necessarily assure the availability of rooms. At that epoch, indeed, turists start to book for rooms. In this case, participants will need to freely address to the Hotels in the neighbourhood or, in case some free rooms are still available at the Hotel El Faro, they will access to standard prices. However, we remind that the Nymphes Bay is a tourist attractive place. We recommend, therefore, the participants to take care to conclude their reservations as soon as possible if they wish to take advantage of this wonderful Italian place in an optimized way.
