Conference Location

The 2020 Computing Frontiers conference will be held in the city of Catania, located on the east part of beautiful Sicilian island, Italy.

Conference Venue

The event will be hosted in the Diocesan Museum of Catania, situated in the ancient Seminario dei Chierici of the Cathedral. The building, architecturally connected to the Cathedral, gives onto Piazza Duomo and represents an interesting example of restoration. The group of works destined to the exhibition is mainly constituted of the Cathedral liturgical furniture and of other works that, for various reasons, were kept in the bishop’s palace. The Museum is divided into two sections: the first one, dedicated to the Cathedral liturgical furniture, winds in the rooms on the first floor and ends with the Chapel on the next floor; the second section, that comprises furniture from other churches of the town and from the diocese, winds in the rooms on the second and third floors, including the picture gallery.


Piazza Duomo, Via Etnea, 8
