Conference Venue

The ECIR 2021 main conference, satellite workhops, and tutorials, will be hosted at the facilities of the IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca, located in the historical centre of the town within the ancient city walls.

The IMT School is a public university school for higher education and research, with a special statute, that focuses on the analysis of economic, societal, technological, and cultural systems. Since its institution in 2005, the School has distinguished itself thanks to the quality and innovativeness of its research and doctoral program, and its interdisciplinary nature, characterized by the complementarity among methodologies and techniques from economics, engineering, computer science, applied mathematics, physics, archaeology, art history and the analysis and management of cultural heritage.

The fusion between art and technology is also reflected in the beautiful, state-of-the-art campus, located in the newly restored San Francesco complex, that will host ECIR 2021

The conference venue is at walking distance from the Lucca railway and bus stations, and is easily reachable also by car (see the map below).
