Useful to know

Conference venue

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.

Registration office

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

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 Programme

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 us


Málaga is the capital of the Costa del Sol (Cost of Sun), so warm and nice temperatures are expected during the conference, ranging from 25C to 30C (77F-86F). Bring your swimming suit with you (for your spare days!), and do not forget some protection for the sun.

Health regulations

No vaccinations are required when entering Spain from any country.


The conference organizers will not be able to take out any kind of insurance for participants or accompanying persons. Participants are required to make their own arrangements concerning insurance.


The Euro is the official currency in Spain.


Organizational details during the conference will be dealt with at the registration desk. Should you need further assistance, do not hesitate to contact any person of the organization, that will try to help in everything they can.

Outside the conference hours, or if you are away from the conference venue, please dial 619385603 for contacting somebody from the ECOOP organization. In addition, the usual emergency and help numbers are always available:

  • Local police: 092

  • Fire brigade: 080
  • Health service: 061
  • Red Cross: 95 222 222
