The workshop is co-sponsored by BICI, the Bertinoro Center for Informatics, and DIMACS, the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science.
The meeting will be held in the small medieval hilltop town of Bertinoro. This town is in Emilia Romagna about 50km east of Bologna at an elevation of about 230m. It is easily reached by train and taxi from Bologna and is close to many splendid Italian locations such as Ravenna, a treasure trove of byzantine art and history, and the Republic of San Marino (all within 35km) as well as some less well-known locations like the thermal springs of Fratta Terme and the castle and monastic gardens of Monte Maggio. Bertinoro can also be a base for visiting some of the better-known Italian locations such as Padua, Ferrara, Vicenza, Venice, Florence and Siena.
Bertinoro itself is picturesque, with many narrow streets and walkways winding around the central peak. The meeting will be held in a redoubtable ex-Episcopal fortress that has been converted by the University of Bologna into a modern conference center with computing facilities and Internet access (please see http://www.centrocongressibertinoro.it/index_en.cfm for more information). From the fortress you can enjoy a beautiful the vista that stretches from the Tuscan Apennines to the Adriatic coast.
There will be a workshop registration fee of 650 Euro that will cover for accomodation, excursion, and meal expenses. The registration fee can be paid directly on site (cash or credit card).
