The meeting will take place in Hotel Il Chiostro, a former convent in Verbania that combines centuries of history with modern conference facilities and comfortable acommodation.
Verbania is a popular destination at the shore of Lago Maggiore, adjacent to the Borromean Gulf with its several islands famous for sumptuous villas and palaces of the powerful Borromeo family.
For nature lovers, the most popular destination within Verbania itself are botanical gardens at Villa Taranto. Limnologists in particular are familiar with the building of the former Istituto italiano di idrobiologia “Dott. Marco De Marchi”, now the seat of the Institufe for aquatic research (ISA-CNR). With its history dating back to 1938, it has been a major Europen centre for limnological research since then.
