The conference will be hosted in the Faculty of Civil and Industrial Engineering of Sapienza in the center of Rome, near the Colosseum and the ancient church of San Pietro in Vincoli.

The Faculty of Civil and Industrial Engineering is located in the area where the old convent of San Lorenzo in Panisperna was built. The Faculty is built around a Renaissance cloister, attributed to Giuliano da Sangallo. 

The Faculty is adjacent to Parco di Colle Oppio, an archeological green area on the Oppian Hill, the southern spur of the Esquiline Hill, one of the Septimontium of  ancient Rome. Here you can find the ancient ruins of Domus Aurea and Terme di Traiano.
