The increase of visitor numbers to Porto is growing much quicker than the slow increase in the actual number of beds. This means that the best hotels and rental rooms sell out fast, leaving budget and last-minute visitors forced to look further away from the historic centre. We strongly recommend that you book your accommodation as early as possible. Taking into account the current situation with Covid-19, please try to arrange a free cancellation option.

We would recommend looking for an accommodation within the districts of Ribeira, VitĂłria, SĂ©, Baixa or St. Ildefonso because this area is very close to all of the main sights of the city and the congress venue.

Conference Status with respect to the Coronavirus pandemic

We plan a semi-hybrid Conference. This means that we are preparing a face-to-face Conference in Porto with as many live lectures and discussions as possible! Invited Plenary and Keynote speakers that cannot attend will be live streamed into the rooms. We will have an industrial exhibition as well. For those who cannot attend on site, there will be a platform where the presentations will be available on-demand. We will have all posters at the platform, as well as an exhibition.

If a different health situation should emerge at any time after the early registration deadline, we will change to a completely virtual conference. Also, if it becomes apparent that the majority of attendees and authors have chosen to register for virtual participation only, we will have to switch to a completely virtual conference to assure the quality of the event.
