Detailed information for the students of the
School of Otranto 2018

The students are strongly advised to participate in the full School, with arrival and registration on June 5 and departure on June 12.

A shuttle bus service is foreseen on June 5 and 12. On the 5th, the shuttle bus will pick up the students at two different times (in late morning and late afternoon, to be confirmed in due time) in two meeting points in Lecce: the railway station and the Airport City Terminal (which can be reached from the airport of Brindisi via bus); vice versa on the 12th.

Arrivals or departures on different dates will have to be approved by the Organizing Committee (

The lectures will start in the morning of June 6 and will continue through the afternoon of June 11. The foreseen lecturing times are: 9.00-12.00 and 16.30-19.30.

As part of a session dedicated to scientific communication, the students will be invited to present -in ten minutes- their research activities. A prize will be awarded to the best presentation.

The lodging is foreseen in mini-apartments with two or three bedrooms and shared restrooms.

The participation fee is €780, and includes all meals and lodging in a double room for the full duration of the School (June 5-12). For a stay in single room (with shared restrooms) - to be requested in the registration form - the participation fee is €940. Since the number of single rooms is small, they will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis. The cost for a companion is €400 and includes all meals and lodging in double room for the full duration of the School (June 5-12).

No reduction of the fee is foreseen for stays shorter than the full duration of the School.
