Invitation and Info about the ELSA General Assemby Meeting

We are happy to invite the whole ELSA Consortium to the first ELSA General Assembly Meeting. The event is organized by UNIGE, CINI, UNICA, and PLURIBUS-ONE and will take place in Sestri Levante on September 25 – 27, 2023.
The meeting will begin at around 10 am on September 25. It would thus make sense to schedule your arrival for September 24.
On September 26, the meeting will resume in the morning, followed by a boat trip to Cinque Terre in the afternoon. The boat trip takes place on a voluntary basis.
Our assembly meeting on September 27 will also begin in the morning.

The agenda might be subject to changes.

There are plenty of hotels at walking distance from the venue (via Portobello, 19, 16039 Sestri Levante, Genoa, Italy).
Please book your accommodation as soon as possible as the venue is quite touristic.

The conference center is located in Sestri Levante, which is a nice town near Genoa. The event will be held in an ancient monastery located on the Silence Bay, one of the most beautiful bays in Italy. More info here.

Where to have lunch/dinner
