FroCoS 2009 will be held at the Conference Center Panorama in Trento, Italy.
The building, which goes back to the twenties, but has been completely restored in 2001, is located on a rocky spur at about 560 meters above sea level. The place is quiet and isolated, but very close to the town center, which can be reached also via cable car.
The building is endowed with 3 conference rooms: the biggest one has 150 seats, the interpreter booth and the direction room, audio-visual facilities, closed-circuit and video-conference telecameras, phone and Internet connections; the second biggest room has 40 seats with the same technological facilities as the first one and fit to work on its own or in connection with the other conference rooms. The smallest room can hold up to 20 people and is separated from the biggest room with glass walls.
SARDAGNA is about 10 km from the town (Trento) by road (taxi, bus, car), but can also be reached more easily by cablecar:
- the CABLECAR ticket costs about € 1 (see the "Resources" box in this page for the cable car schedule and the map). From Trento railway station: exiting the station, turn right and walk for about 100 meters towards the center; after passing a small church and the bus station on your right, take the first street on your right and hence the bridge over the railway (Cavalcavia di S. Lorenzo). After passing the bridge over the railway (about 200 meters) you reach a bridge over the Adige river (S. Lorenzo bridge) and see the cablecar station on the left of the S. Lorenzo bridge. You buy the ticket inside the station.
- a TAXI from the railway station to Sardagna: the cost from the railway station to Centro Congressi Panorama at Sardagna is about € 20.
- by CAR: coming from Verona, exit the motorway at Trento Centro and follow the direction "Riva del Garda". Drive for less than 1 Km and then you should turn left, following the direction "Monte Bondone SARDAGNA. The road is full of curves, but after 5-6 km you will arrive in Sardagna. The Residenza Sardagna is 10 metres from the cablecar station.
