Florence, one of the most beautifuland visited art cities in the world, is an open-air museum, placed in the UNESCO's World Heritage List in 1982. The density of such a fabulously rich legacy- historic and artistic but also scientific and naturalistic - in a small, well-defined space where everything is accessible by walking distance, makes Florence city centre quite unique, not only in the eyes of the curious visitor but also in those of scholars and local people. The congress venue is the Palazzo dei Congressi, located in heart of Florence next to the main train station, near the historic and cultural areas. Palazzo dei Congressi is a historical venue as it is hosted inside the L9th century Villa Vittoria.

We offer you our warmest welcome and hope tb make the EMSOS 2019 Congress in Florence a memorable experience for you.

With our best regards,
