Conference Venue & City of Lisbon


The conference will be held in the CCB - Centro Cultural de Belém (Belém Cultural Center) a venue located on the Tagus riverside not far from its mouth, in a historic quarter of Lisbon. This is within easy reach of the city center by frequent trains along the riverside railway [a seven minutes journey], fast tramways and buses. Scenic attractions, further cafés, bars, and restaurants are very close to the CCB. The main conference sessions will take place in one of the auditoriums. A diversity of other rooms is allocated to workshops and associated events. Meals will be served in an exclusive space open to a large private terrace overlooking the river.

Exhibitions, concerts, and other cultural events are on offer in the CCB galleries, two auditoriums and several bars and cafés. Its pleasant gardens and terraces present opportunities for relaxation and chatting. A subway leads to the riverside prom. CCB stands in Praça do Império, a square dominated by XV century Jerónimos Monastery. Nearby Torre de Belém (Belém Tower) is said to have been erected in the site where, on the 8th of July 1497, Portuguese ships set sail to open the sea route to India. Both monuments are classified as World Heritage, by Unesco.
