Meeting Schedule

The programme is available. It includes talks and discussions among the Action participants for all four Working Groups. There will also be an industry session. If you have comments or would like your talk rescheduled, then please contact the Action chair.

Informal Tool Demo and Installation Marathon

The meeting officially starts after lunch on Thrusday, but for people who are in Lisbon Thursday morning there will be an informal tool demo and installation marathon: just show up with your laptop to give a demo of your tool to others or to install and try out someone else's tool. Exact times and place for this event will be announced shortly.

Workshop Dinner

The Workshop Dinner on Friday evening will take place at the restaurant Sacramento do Chiado, Calçada do Sacramento No. 40-46. The dinner consists of a nice three-course meal and costs 50 Euro per person. This is not covered by COST. Please pay these 50 Euro when registering at the DISCOTEC registration desk (if you prefer not to participate in the dinner then please also contact the registration desk).

Location and Accommodation

The COST Action Workshop (as all events that are part of DISCOTEC 2009) will take place in the Faculty of Sciences at the main campus of the University of Lisbon. The COST Action Workshop will be in room C 6.2.53. More venue information at the DISCOTEC website (including maps of the campus and the surrounding area).

The DISCOTEC Accommodation page is now on-line. Via that page, you have the possibility to book accomodation (list of hotels and prices) at a reduced rate. The reduced rates are guaranteed for bookings before May 18, 2009.

To make a booking, please use the DISCOTEC registration form. If you want to book a hotel room without registering for any of the other DISCOTEC events (besides the COST Action workshop), then please fill in your personal details and, without selecting any event, move on to the accommodation booking page by clicking the button at the bottom of the form's 1st page.

If you have questions regarding the location of the meeting and/or accomodation, then please contact the local organiser of DISCOTEC: António Ravara.


Registration for the COST Action Workshop is now open. More information is available on the registration page.

A preliminary list of participants/submitted registrations is available (please sign in first).

You are very welcome to also attend the other events that are part of DISCOTEC. That, however, requires a separate registration to DISCOTEC and payment of a registration fee (participation in the COST Workshop is free). More information on registration for DISCOTEC events is available on the DISCOTEC 2009 website.
