Resurgence in Gauge and String Theories

Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Portugal. July 18-22, 2016.

Local Information

Reaching IST

The campus of Instituto Superior Técnico is easily reachable by subway from the airport (a 15 minutes ride): take the red subway line and exit at Saldanha to Av. Duque de Ávila, or exit at Alameda and go up the hill (check the map below). Downtown Lisbon is also easily reachable by subway from either of these two stations (exit at either Rossio or Baixa/Chiado).

If arriving by train, one should get off at Gare do Oriente (not at Santa Apolónia). From here one can take the red subway line to Alameda. Useful information can be obtained from the railway company. There are also two local train lines, to Cascais and to Sintra.

Further information on reaching IST may be found in the school web site.
