The conference is scheduled as a hybrid in-person/virtual conference, that could turn to a full virtual conference in the case of travel limitations in September 2021, so please delay your accommodation and travel reservations until a few weeks before the conference, or prefer refundable reservations.
The conference will take place in the Dipartimento di Matematica e Informatica dell'Università di Perugia, Via Luigi Vanvitelli 1, 06123, Perugia (PG). See the conference location on OpenStreetMap and Google Maps.

Perugia can be reached from the cities where these airports are located by either train or bus. The Italian train service is operated by the Trenitalia.

For the lunch, you can go to Via Fabretti and try the Italian Cuisine in the "Ristorante Brizi" or "Osteria Fiorucci", with whom we will arrange special fares.
