The conference will be hosted by CERLIS, the Research Centre on Languages for Specific Purposes operating at the University of Bergamo, an institution where research has always been in the foreground and where various national and international conferences have already been organized (see http://www.unibg.it/cerlis).
The conference will start on Thursday morning and end at lunchtime on Saturday.
As for accompanying persons, while there is no dedicated programme for them during the conference, they are very welcome to register for the social events listed in the registration form.
The conference room is equipped with OHP, microphone and video projector for PowerPoint presentations – there is no need to bring your own laptop, but your presentation should be fully Windows compatible. Please make sure you bring ca. 30-35 copies of any handouts you may have, as last-minute photocopying is likely to be expensive.
