The Strong Gravity beyond GR Workshop will take place in the Alameda campus of IST. See campus map here. The venue will be announced in due course.

Social events
A social dinner is scheduled on March 7th at the restaurant “Portugalia” in Belém, one of the most suggestive areas of Lisbon. The meeting point is at 18:00 in Rossio Square (stop of the metro red line) for a typical ginjinha and a visit of the city center. After dinner, we shall stop in Belém for the typical “pastéis de nata”.
