Conference fees

This Conference is made possible thanks to the generous support of TINT, the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian and INTREPID COST Action (TD1408). The conference fees are therefore waived, and anyone interested may attend the keynote lectures and parallel sessions at no cost. The keynote lectures and parallel sessions are free for both presenting and non-presenting participants.

Non-presenting participants:

Arriving and moving around

Lisbon’s airport (LIS) is located very close to the city center. Here you can find details about public transportation from the airport to the city center. Taxis in Lisbon, however, are cheap and a ride from the airport to the city center should not cost you more than 7-8 euros (additional fees apply for luggage, at night, and during the weekend). Alternatively you can move around using the efficient urban metro system. Here you can find information about busmetro and train.


The Institute of Social Sciences has made preliminary bookings at the Hotel SANA Reno (also found in the list below). If you would like to book one of those rooms, please contact us by December 2nd. There are both single and double rooms available. Please see contact details here
