The Conference will be held at the Hotel GIO located at walking distance from the Perugia Railway station (Fontivegge), the mini-metro station (Case Bruciate) to the town Centre and the University of Perugia main campus. Hotel GIO can accommodate all the participants to the conference at a special rate if booking is made before August1 and mention is made to EUCO 2019 in the booking form. Several other hotel and B&B accommodations are available in town.
CONFERENCE TENTATIVE TIMETABLE (see table below)
The conference will be articulated as follows:
10 regular sessions (three per day, except the last one, complemented by a poster session) devoted to Computational and Theoretical Chemistry topics chosen by the Scientific Committee (the local Organizing Committee and the Board of the CTC Division chaired by P. Szalay). Each regular session will host one keynote lecture (40’), two contributed oral presentations (20’ each) and some Research Telegrams from young researchers and students (10’ each) selected by the Scientific Committee.
5 parallel sessions of 10’ oral presentations by TCCM (Theoretical Chemistry and Computational modelling) students on Monday (all day) and Tuesday (morning) to follow the keynote talks.
1 training parallel event (open also to TCCM students) on the use of both the EChemTest® e-tests in a cloud environment for assessing chemistry competences and the GLOREP distributed repository of Learning Objects.
AFTER CONFERENCE WORKSHOP on the Open Molecular Science Cloud project (see table below Half-day (Thursday afternoon) at the headquarters of the “Accademia delle Scienze” in Rome for potential partners of the Open Molecular Science Cloud project (ad hoc bus connection from hotel GIO at 11:30 sharp)
PUBLICATIONS and GENERAL ASSEMBLY
Accepted abstracts of orals and posters will be published by the e-magazine VIRT&L-COMM (member of the Open Journal System) at no charge. On Thursday morning (10:20-11:00) after the regular Session started at 8:20 General Assembly of the participants to discuss the policies of the CTC Division.
Guided walking tour of the city, visits to the Etruscan-Roman foundations of the Cathedral (http://www.cattedrale.perugia.it/) and to the Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria can be booked at the conference desk (http://www.artiumbria.beniculturali.it/index.php?en/1/home). Excursion to Assisi, Spoleto, Orvieto, Norcia, Trasimeno Lake, etc. could also be arranged
There are direct flights connecting the small Perugia airport “San Francesco” (http://www.airport.umbria.it/en/) to London Stansted, Brussels and Frankfurt. The best option, however, is to fly to Fiumicino and take from the Rome stations (Termini or Tiburtina) a train to Perugia (http://www.trenitalia.com/tcom-en). There are also regular bus connections Fiumicino-Perugia (http://www.sulga.eu/libreria/fiumicinoroma.pdf).
The last day of the Conference a direct bus ride to the Accademia delle scienze arranged for the participants to the Project meeting: “Open Molecular Science Cloud” at 11:30 for departure from Hotel GIO (expected travel time is 2.0 hours, booking is requested).
