Accommodation

Numbers of hotels in the ASI area are available but we suggest to take a room in Rome (better if it is near Metro A stations), to have a more pleasant staying and enjoy yourself.

There is no preselection of hotels but you can look at this booking search website, where we have preselected dates and search criteria (that you can anyway change).

Social Events

A social dinner is organised for November 8 at 8:30pm  in Rome at “Ai Balestrari Porta Pia” (Rome, via Alessandria 150), 13 min walking from metro B exit “Policlinico”

The menu is a typical one of “Cucina Romana”, but an option for vegetarian people will be available.

The cost is 35 Euro, to be payed at the restaurant and individual receipts will be available.

Since we could be a large number of people, we need to book in due time: registered attendees will receive the link for the conference dinner reservation.
