The XV International Workshop on Complex Systems will take place at Andalo between the 17th and the 20th of March 2019. 
More in detail, it will start with a late afternoon session on Sunday the 17th and end at lunch time on Wednesday the 20th.

Andalo is a beautiful village in the heart of the mountains of Trentino, about 30 km far from Trento. The workshop site will be only a few meters away from the Ski area Paganella.

Andalo is a beautiful village lying on the Paganella plateau, in the heart of the mountains of Trentino.
Its territory is part of the Adamello-Brenta natural park, Ski-lift facilities lead visitors up to Cima Paganella (2125 m) to explore Alpine meadows and huts and are connected to Andalo’s ski-runs.

Scientific sessions will be held at the Andalo Cinema (see "Municipio di Andalo" in the map below), while posters, lunches and dinners will be provided at Hotel La Bussola.
The hotel is located near various sport facilities and the Andalo Life Park, which offers swimming pools, sauna and wellness centre.
