For the first time to EMS members Rome is here proposed as the hosting city of this event. The city of Rome is world wide famous for tourist activities and attractions. Rome surely will represent a novel and attractive place to all EMS members to join this event. Although the summerschool will have its venue located at 40km from city center, an excursion of one afternoon to main Rome tourist attractions will be granted to the participants. Moreover, reaching the city is always quick and direct.
