Fifth Pan-European Conference on EU Politics

23 to 26 June 2010
Porto, Portugal

Venue

The conference will be held in Porto, Portgual, which is the country's second largest city. The city is renowned for the beauty of its architecture and for the high quality of its many bars and restaurants. General information about the city is easy to find. Among the many websites available, we recommend:

The local organizers have negotiated special rates at a number of different hotels. The prices range from very comfortable to very reasonable, with a lot of different options for choice. Here is a hotel list with prices.

The conference will be hosted at two different universities in the city. The Faculty of Economics at the University of Oporto and the University Fernando Pessoa. The two campuses are within about a kilometer of one-another.


You can get detailed maps of the conference venues using the google maps facility. For your convenience, the local organizers have already plugged in the details. Click here for the University Fernando Pessoa and here for the Faculty of Economics at the University of Oporto. They have also taken advantage of the Gmap pedometer to get you a sense of what it will be like to walk from one place to the next. Unfortunately, you will have to enter the starting and ending points of your journey if you want to measure the distance.

Porto benefits from great public transport, which will be operating throughout the conference (even on the public holiday). Unfortunately, the web-based information for bus network is not in English. Fortunately, the web-based information for the metro and tram network is.
