Those arriving between 10-13 May and wish to use the shuttle service running from 7.00AM to 23.00PM, please look out for SNSPA students upon exiting the baggage claim area in the arrival hall near Segafredo Coffee Shop.
We hope most of you will register on Sunday, 12 May 2019 between 5-7PM before the Welcome Reception in InterContinental Hotel. This will help us to start the conference on time on Monday morning. Other registration opportunities are listed in the Practical Information Booklet.
Keep your passport with you
Thanks to our local partners ARC7 will be hosted in the Palace of the Parliament of Bucharest. For security reasons participants have to bring their passports and their registration badges every day.
