3rd International Summer School on Advanced Functional Programming


The Summer School will be held in Braga , an ancient town in the north-west corner of Portugal, located 50 km from Oporto and 30 km from the seaside. A parallel cultural program will enable participants to get in touch with the region and the local academic traditions.

Both the scientific sessions, meals and accommodation will be located at Casa do Espírito Santo , on the top of a hill surrounding the town. This self-contained and quiet environment will hopefully provide for maximal interaction between the participants and a good working atmosphere.

Braga has fast train and motorway connections to Lisbon, the city which is hosting the celebrations of the 5th centenary of Vasco da Gama's arrival in India. A world exhibition Expo'98 will be held until the end of September on the theme The oceans: a heritage for the future.
Therefore, the Summer School busy scientific and cultural week may be further extended with a visit to the Expo'98.
