Annual Workshop

The members of the ERCIS network meet once a year for several days at one of the partner institutions to discuss current topics, introduce new members, plan joint research or teaching activities etc. It is well-established that we agree on one specific topic that serves as a kind of "leading theme" during the Annual Workshop.

This year's Annual Workshop will take place in Viterbo, Italy, September 23-25, 2024, hosted by our partner Prof. Alessio Maria Braccini of the Tuscia University.

Accommodation

In general, you can book any accommodation in Viterbo via any booking platform. Viterbo is quite hilly, so you might want to search one close to the venue, if you don't like walking :) As we expect the weather to be brilliant, walking will be a nice option!
