The conference will be held in Naples at the Astronomical Observatory of Capodimonte, established in 1819 and now part of the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF). The Observatory is in an enviable position at about 150 meter above sea level, overlooking the city and the bay. Naples is the 3rd largest city in Italy, facing a beautiful bay surrounded by the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida, and the Vesuvius vulcano.
There are plenty of things to do, visit and eat in Naples and its surroundings, due to the millenary history of the city and its role as a rich greek colony first, an important roman port, and finally the capital of the largest Italian kingdom.
