11th HyMeX Workshop, 29 May - 2 June 2018, Lecce, Italy

The 11th HyMeX workshop will take place from Tuesday 29 May to Saturday 2 June 2018 in Lecce, Italy, at the Grand Hotel Tiziano e dei Congressi (www.grandhoteltiziano.it). It is organized by the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate of the Italian National Research Council (ISAC-CNR) in collaboration with the University of Salento and the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC).

The general objectives of the HyMeX workshops are to present and discuss recent scientific progresses in the understanding of the Mediterranean water cycle, from multiscale and multidisciplinary approaches, and to foster further collaborations within the HyMeX community.

The workshop programme will consist in plenary and parallel sessions, both oral and poster, with an open call for contributions on the HyMeX science topics, meetings of the Science Teams, as well as meetings for the preparation of the field campaigns of the next three years.

Practical information

The 11th HyMeX Workshop will be held in Lecce (Italy) at the Grand Hotel Tiziano e dei Congressi (www.grandhoteltiziano.it). Lecce has become in the last few years a popular touristic destination in southern Italy, because of its rich Baroque architectural monuments (Lecce is sometimes nicknamed as "The Florence of the South") and of the nearby beaches.

How to reach the venue
By plane: Brindisi International is the closest airport. Buses from/to the airport (6,50 euros; timetable at http://www.eliostours.it/ita/pagina.asp?id=136) stop/leave right in front of the conference venue; private shuttles (20 euros; booking at https://www.airshuttle.it/index_eng.asp) provide direct connection (about 30 min) from/to any place in Lecce. Alternatively, one can take the urban bus (every 30 min; timetable at http://www.stpbrindisi.it/index.php/en/services/bus-airport-town-centre-costa-morena; cost: 1 euro) from the airport to Brindisi railway station and then a train to Lecce (regional train 2.80 euros; every 30 min). Bari airport can be also an option, but you need to reach Bari railway station by bus (http://www.autoservizitempesta.it/orari.php) or train (http://www.ferrovienordbarese.it/home) and then get a train to reach Lecce (about 1h30).
By train: many connections are available to Lecce railway station, high-speed and regional trains (from Bari and Brindisi we recommend regional trains, which are cheaper and take just a bit more time). Timetables can be found at http://www.trenitalia.com/. Lecce station is 2 km from the workshop venue (almost walking distance). Anyway, from railway station, urban buses bring you to the workshop venue (bus stop just outside the square of the station, bus n. 12-13-14-15-16-28-29).

Registration fee
Registration fee is 270 euros. The fee includes coffee breaks, lunches, conference material, ice breaker on Tuesday evening and a guided tour in Lecce on Wednesday afternoon. The Grand Hotel Tiziano will manage both registration and booking.

Social excursion and dinner
The conference excursion and dinner will take place on Thursday 31 May in the afternoon. They are subject to an additional fee of 40 euros.

Accommodation and booking
We recommend to book a room at the Grand Hotel Tiziano, where a number of rooms have been reserved for the workshop. We recommend superior rooms, which have been renovated recently. Classic single / double: 65 / 74 euros (breakfast included), Superior single / double: 80 / 90 euros (breakfast included). Early booking is available at reduced cost until 21 April 2018.
