Social Programme for Conference Participants
In addition to the technical and scientific programme,  an extensive social programme has been arranged during the conference for making people enjoy the visit to Málaga as much as possible. 


Sunday 9. Guided tour to the city



On Sunday afternoon, a guided tour to Málaga will show all ECOOP early-comers the city and its monuments.

Guests will be transferred by bus at 17:00 from the Conference venue located at Teatinos to the city center. Then, we will enjoy a guided walk around this area, one of the most beautiful parts of the city. Malaga has a lot of monuments, among which the cathedral, the Alcazaba (a traditional morish castle) and Picasso's birthplace, are perhaps the most relevant ones.



Monday 10. Get-together party
After the technical activities of the first day, ECOOP 2002 welcomes both Tutorial and Workshop as well as Conference participants to a get-together party with drinks and snacks at the Conference venue. This will be an excellent opportunity for visiting the exhibition and making contacts with the exhibitors.

Tuesday 11. Tapas' evening
The City of Málaga invites all ECOOP 2002 participants to enjoy the traditional tapas (small portions of food) at the city center.  Participants wil be provided with 15 "verdiales" (a special currency only valid for eating out in some places in Málaga, 1 "verdial" = 1 €) and a list of bars and restaurants where they can enjoy the tapas and pay for them with verdiales. In addition, ECOOP participants will be usually invited by the barteners of these tapas bars to a glass of wine with their specialities.


Wednesday 12. Welcome reception at the Gibralfaro roman castle

The City of Málaga will host a welcome reception at the Gibralfaro Castle, an impressive roman fortress overlooking the city and the Málaga bay. 

Buses will depart at 18:30 from the Conference venue, taking participants through a tour of the city first and then to the Castle, where aprox. at 20:00 they will be offered a cocktail reception. 

A flamenco show will be featured during the reception..

Thursday 13. Conference banquet



On Thursday evening the banquet will be served at 21:30 at the Señorío de Lepanto, a beautiful Spanish villa located within the Natural Park of the Málaga Mountains. 

Participants should show the invitation card to gain entrance to the banquet. The card will be given to all participants that have explicitly registered to the banquet when registering for the conference. 



Buses will transport participants from the hotels to the Señorío de Lepanto at 21:00, and back to the hotels once the banquet is over. Special buses will also run from the conference venue for those participants attending any of the BOF meetings happening on Thursday, departing as well at 21:00. 

Our banquet speaker will be Kristen Nygaard, who has recently received--together with Ole-Johan Dahl-- the IEEE von Newmann Medal and ACM Turing awards for their contributions to Object-Oriented programming.


Friday 14. Farewell drinks
Right after the last technical session and the closing of the conference, some farewell drinks will be served at the Conference venue.

Wednesday 14. Guided tour

This visit will depart at 12:15 from the Tourist Office located in Málaga's city park. This building---also known as "La Casa del Jardinero" (the gardener's house)---was built in 1908 and it is a very nice and small construction surrounded by plants and leafy vegetation. You will have the opportunity to visit the Historical Botanical garden "La Concepción", the second most important tropical garden in Europe.

The visit will also include a special lunch with traditional dishes of Málaga and Andalucía, in a typical restaurant sited on the Málaga's hills.

The visit and the lunch are free for all registered accompanying persons.
