ECOOP 2002 will be hosted by the School
of Informatics (ETSI Informática) of the University of
Málaga. All events will happen at the School premises.
Located in the "Campus
de Teatinos", it has an easy access from Málaga
downtown by bus or taxi (see the map page
for details on how to get here). In addition, buses will be provided
by the organization in the morning and evenings to take ECOOP participants
to and from the hotels to the conference place.
A registration office will be set up in the conference
site. The office will be opened during all the conference from 8:30
to 17:30. It will also open on Sunday June 9, from 15:00 to 19:30.
You are kindly requested to wear your name badge
at all times, as admittance to the sessions, coffee breaks, lunches,
and the evening programme is not allowed without your badge. The
conference assistants will be wearing specific badges for easy recognition.
Electronic mail facilities and Internet connection
will be available for ECOOP participants during the conference.
Meals and coffee-breaks are included for those
who handle a valid pass to the Conference. Special food (vegetarian
and pork-free food) has also been arranged.
Social and Accompanying
An extensive social program has been arranged
during the conference for making people enjoy the visit to Málaga
as much as possible. Activities for accompanying persons are available
as well, since we think that this is an excellent opportunity to
bring your partner or family and enjoy the trip to Spain. Should
you need further assistance on this matter, apart from the excursions
and trips already organized, do not hesitate to contact
Málaga is the capital of the Costa del
Sol (Cost of Sun), so warm and nice temperatures are expected during
