The conference will take place at Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian. Established in perpetuity, the Foundation’s main purpose is to improve the quality of life through art, charity, science and education. The Foundation has a museum, which houses the Founder’s private collection, alongside a collection of modern and contemporary art; an orchestra and a choir; an art library and archive; a scientific research institute; and a garden, in a central area of the city of Lisbon, where educational activities also take place.
Both the workshop and conference venue is easily accessible by subway from the airport or train stations. The subway system is not complicated with three lines (red - vermelha, blue - azul, yellow - amarela). The airport has a station (Aeroporto) directly at the arrivals of Terminal 1. The conference venue is located close to the station São Sebastião and the workshop venue close to Saldanha; the stations are ca. 15 min walking distance between each other. The subway takes 20-30 min from the airport to the center. More information can be found at the Lisbon metro website.
Subway is a quick way to get around the city but buses and trams (watch out for pickpockets) are also available. If you have enough time, you can walk pretty much anywhere - it's roughly 30 min by foot to the city center from the conference venue. These days many shared means of transport also exist: electric scooters (e.g. lime or hive), Uber bicycles JUMP (uses the same app as Uber taxi). There are also dockable bicycles GIRA.
Rooftop bar of the Mundial Hotel. Considered one of the best rooftop Bars in Lisbon and with a stunning 360º view over the historical center of Lisbon and the Tejo River, it inspires all to touch the stars in spring or summer nights, to the sound of good music, while tasting the Portuguese tapas and savoring a drink.
We will visit a vineyard Quinta dos Catralvos with cheese and wine tasting. Then we will visit the town of Sesimbra and the hills of Serra de Arrábida.
