Conference Location

Computing Frontiers 2014 takes place in the city of Cagliari on the island of Sardinia, Italy. Conference rooms are located in a place called the "Ghetto".

The “Ghetto” is at the border of the Castello quarter of Cagliari and is faced to another very old quarter of the city Stampace, dominating it from the Castello hill offering an amazing view of the city. This building, originally conceived for military scopes, has been erected in 1738. Currently it hosts cultural events, such as meetings and temporary expositions. Its position, in the pure original heart of the city, is unique and CF participants will have the chance of crossing the historical medieval quarters (Castello, Stampace, Villanova and Marina) and will then appreciate the real character of Cagliari.

This is a building of great historical and artistic interest. It is skilled in hosting social events and dinners, providing different indoor and outdoor solutions to create a perfect atmosphere for events.


The poster session will be hosted in its marvelous porch, before the Banquet, and will start approximately at 18:30. There will be a bus from the city center at 18:00, in front of the Camera di Commercio (Largo Carlo Felice 72, 09124 Cagliari, which is near to Piazza Yenne, see map).
