FOSAD 2013



The school is organized at the University Residential Center of Bertinoro - CeUB, situated in Bertinoro, a medieval village on a scenic hill with a wonderful panorama, in between Forlì and Cesena (about 50 miles south-east of Bologna, 15 miles to the Adriatic sea). The host venue provides a unique architectonical and environmental setting joining the stunning views of the hilltop of Bertinoro with the historical location of the ancient fortress and the modern facilities of the Center, which offers accommodation, meeting rooms, and modern conference and computing services.
Lecture room and speakers accommodation are in the fortress (via Frangipane 6). Participants are hosted in the former seminary (via Frangipane 4), which is close to the canteen (via Frangipane 2). Self-service breakfast and lunch as well as the welcome buffet are served in the canteen. On Sunday check-in is provided at the seminary entrance. A permanent house-keeping service works at the fortress.
