Travel Information and Contact During the Workshop

 2009 Advanced Research Workshop
Future Trends in Microelectronics:  
Unmapped Roads
June 14-19:  Sardinia, Italy
Travel Information

Hotel: The Workshop will take place in the hotel "Pullman Timi Ama Sardegna Ex Sofitel." Please note that the hotel, formerly known as Sofitel Thalassa Timi Ama, has changed its name but is still located on the southern tip of Sardinia near the small town of Villasimius. One of the FTM mafiosi (AZ) examined the hotel thoroughly and was duly impressed.  Below are his observations:

Arrival Day:  Sunday, June 14: see bus schedule from Cagliari airport for the arrival day

Departure Day:   Friday, June 19. 

Additional stay before or after the conference:  Those who wish to arrive before June 14 and/ot depart after June 19 should let us know as soon as possible by e-mail (and we will communicate the reservation to the hotel). For these extra days, FTM-2009 attendees will benefit from the discounted rates, listed below.  You will be billed for the extra days directly by the hotel when checking out. Special conference rates are:

Air:  The closest airport is Cagliari (CAG) which is 55 km away from the hotel (shuttle service will be arranged for arrival and departure days, June 14 and 19, rental cars available).  The Cagliari airport is served by British Airways (from London), Lufthansa (from Munchen), Alitalia/AirOne (frequent service from Milan and Rome), Easyjet (from Geneva, London, and Milan), Meridiana Eurofly (from multiple cities), and Ryanair (from Madrid, Milan, and Pisa).  Booking in advance is recommended for reasonable fares (which climb quickly as summer approaches).

Auto/Ferry:  There are ferries to Sardinia from a number of Italian ports including Genova, Piombino, and Civitavecchia, for those who want to travel by car (keep in mind that Sardinia is a large island, e.g. the drive from Olbia or Puerto Torres in the North to Cagliari is roughly 3 hours).
