Coimbra is an old university town situated in the centre of Portugal, between Lisbon (200 km) and Porto (120 km) and about 35 km from the Atlantic coast at Figueira da Foz.
Lisbon and Porto international airports have many connections to major European and American airports.
Coimbra A or Coimbra B railway stations (schedules can be found at http://www.cp.pt) are directly connected to Lisbon and Porto. From either station a taxi can bring you to the conference venue (approx. 7 €).
