Hosting Institution and Local Sponsors

OctConf 2013 will be hosted by the MOX Modeling and Scientific Computing lab at the [http://www.mate.polimi.it Department of Mathemathics] of Milan Technical University [http://www.polimi.it Politecnico di Milano].


The meeting will be held on the 7th floor of Building 14 ("La Nave") of the "Leonardo" campus of Politecnico di Milano in the Department meeting room.

Milano, Italy

Milan is one of the most art and history rich cities in Italy, and it is within 100 miles of all most beatiful locations in northern Italy including the Apls, the Mediterranean see and the lake reggion. With new high speed train connections it is also about 2 and a half hours away from Rome. There are 3 international airports in Milan all served by Low-Cost companies that offer cheap flights to/from most cities in Europe, Northern Africa and the Middle East.

Summer in Milano can be quite hot and humid but rain is very rare. The city has a very serviceable public transportation network of buses and underground trains (metro), there is also a public bike rental service but none of the bike rental stations is located conveniently enough to serve the Politecnico campus at this time yet.
