Venue & Accommodation

EPNOE 2019 will be held at the Cultural Congress Center of Aveiro, also known as former Fábrica de Cerâmica Jerónimo Pereira Campos, an old ceramics factory. Aveiro is a 100 thousand inhabitant’s town next to the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by a lagoon. Its landscape is characterized by the constant presence of water. Aveiro is crossed by water channels in which the colorful typical boats “Moliceiros” sail.

Aveiro has several Art Nouveau buildings that deserve to be visited together with the Aveiro Museum of Princess Saint Joana and the Misericordia Church. Moreover, the University of Aveiro is a great example of contemporary Portuguese Architecture. Most of the buildings were designed by some of the most important Portuguese contemporary architects, such as Siza Vieira, Souto Moura, Alcino Soutinho, Carrilho da Graça or Gonçalo Byrne.

In terms of gastronomy, Aveiro has some delights from the sea to offer, as shellfish, fresh fish and eels and the delicious sweet “ovos moles”.
