6th International Multibody System Dynamics Workshop & Summer School,
3-7 June 2024

Workshop location

The summer school will take place at the Centro S. Elisabetta, a nice conference center in the middle of the Campus of the University of Parma.
The building will be booked for our event: lessons and hands-on sessions will take place at the first floor, while coffee breaks and lunches will be organized at the lower floor.
The Campus is connected to the city center with buses n.7, n.21, and "Campus Express" bus.

Arriving from the A1 highway: take the Parma exit, turn right into "tangenziale Nord", follow signs for "La Spezia" and for "Campus", "Langhirano". Follow the direction for "Parco Area delle Scienze, Campus Universitario".
Usually it takes 25 minutes.

Arriving with a train: go downstairs at the lower floor of the train station, here you find the bus stops, in a tunnell. There is a shop that sells tickets. Take the bus n.21, or n.7, direction "Campus – Università sud". In all cases the last stop is in the middle of the Campus.
Usually bus 21 takes less than 20 minutes, bus n.7 might take longer.
From the bus stop to Centro S.Elisabetta is a short walk (2 minutes), as shown in the following map:

We highly recommend that you look for an accommodation in the downtown rather than the Campus surroundings: it will be easier to find restaurants, bars and to visit the city.
Some good options are:
  • Century Hotel (near train&bus station)
  • NH Hotel (near train&bus station)
  • Novotel Parma Centro (near train&bus station)
  • Savoy Hotel (near train&bus station)
  • Ibis Styles Parma Toscanini (cheaper, yet close to bus)
All these hotels are near to a bus stop of the above mentioned bus lines. Please check if this applies also for your hotel, in the case you are not going to choose one from the list.
In general, consider that the train station area is one of the best connected and it is not far from the center.
Another option is to find a Bed and Breakfast. Our suggestion, in this case, is to find a B&B close to downtown. In any case, our advice is to book as soon as possible in order to get the best options at a reasonable price.
