Conference Venue:

The 27th Symposium on Applied Computing will be held in the Congress Center of Riva del Garda, a small picturesque town situated on the northern shore of the Lake Garda, Italy's largest lake. Riva del Garda lies in Trentino, a beautiful region in Northern Italy where the Dolomites and the Southern Alps show themselves in all their beauty. The town is surrounded by the mountains, whose slopes blend into the blue water of the lake. Its land offers beautiful landscapes, healthy and wholesome agricultural products, harmony between nature and culture. The atmosphere you breathe in Riva del Garda is that of a typically Mediterranean location with inviting lakeside beaches and villas reached on leisurely steamers. Lake Garda is indeed an all-year-round destination which has something for everyone, from romantic couples to active families, sportsmad youngsters and the cultured "over-fifties". It offers extremely rich tourist opportunities: trekking, thermal resorts, museums, relaxing afternoons on the beaches of the Lake Garda, but also sport activities such as climbing, canyoning or diving and first-class facilities and accommodation. Delicious typical products can also be tasted in characteristic restaurants. The Venue is easily reachable by foot from the center of Riva del Garda and free parking will be available there.
