We extend to you a warm welcome to join us for CompleNet 2009 in Catania. Catania is the second largest city in Sicily (population over 372,000) and is situated on the eastern coast, between the Mediterranean Sea and Mount Etna, the largest and most active volcano in Europe. Founded by Greeks in the 8th century BC, Catania has numerous architectural remains dating back to Greek, Roman and Norman ages. Today Catania is a modern commercial city famous in the world for its magnificent historical centre, mainly built in Baroque style, which is also the scene of nightlife. Catania Fontanarossa International Airport has direct connections to many international destinations and is only 3 km (10 minutes by bus) from Catania City Centre. The Conference will be held at the University of Catania, Italy. Founded in the 15th century, it was the first university established in Sicily and one of the oldest in Europe. Today the University of Catania hosts about 60.000 students. The weather in September is generally warm and sunny, promising you a pleasant stay.
