Q: Is there a hotel I should stay at?

A: While we are not able to offer discount/group rates at any Lisbon hotels, our local chair has made multiple hotel recommendations. For proximity to ISCTE, we recommend Hotel NH Lisboa Campo Grande at Campo Grande 7, 1700-087 Lisboa, Portugal (< 10 minute walk from ISCTE) VIP Executive Entrecampos at Avenida 5 de Outubro 295, 1600-035 Lisboa, Portugal (< 10 minute walk from ISCTE) SANA Metropolitan at R. Soeiro Pereira Gomes 2, 1600-198 Lisboa, Portugal (<15 minute walk from ISCTE)

If you're interested in trying out a trendy area of Lisbon with lots of restaurant options and beach proximity, check out the Parque das Nações areas for other hotel options.

Please book early as the summer months are a popular time to visit Lisbon!

Q: I don’t know anyone who will be attending JuliaCon 2020. Will there be any social event(s) where I can network and make friends?

A: Yes! Please stay tuned for some fun social events we are planning, such as a buddy program and speaker social. Please also be on the lookout for a list of food recommendations. We want to make JuliaCon a rewarding and fun experience for you!
