GETTING TO THE CONFERENCE VENUE
To get to the School of Arts and Humanities of the University of Lisbon (FLUL - Faculdade de Letras da Universidade de Lisboa) take the underground Yellow Line (running from Rato to Campo Grande) to Cidade Universitária station. When you get off the metro, make sure you exit through the tunnel and not the stairs. Once outside, cross the road street at the traffic lights, walk past the Reitoria (the large building to your right) and turn right at the end. You will find the School of Arts and Humanities to your left.
