The Conference will take place in the charming city of Bari (Italy), the capital city of Apulia Region, located on Adriatic Sea. Bari is known for its historic center, which features a mix of medieval and Baroque architecture, including the 11th century Basilica of Saint Nicholas and the Swabian Castle. The city also has a bustling port and a vibrant food scene, with local specialties such as seafood and the famous "panzerotti" fried dough pockets. Bari is also a popular destination for religious pilgrimages, as it is the alleged burial site of Saint Nicholas, also known as Santa Claus.
The conference will take place in Aula Alessandro Leogrande at Centro Polifunzionale Studenti ("Ex-Palazzo delle Poste") in Piazza Cesare Battisti at walking distance from the Main Train Station ("Bari Centrale").
