Welcome to Lisbon! 

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is one of Europe's most alluring cities. Set on the banks of the River Tagus, this vibrant Atlantic port is scattered over a series of hills that heighten its splendid waterfront location. Exploring the city's historic core is a journey into its fascinating past. To the east, away from the city center, you can marvel at the modernity of Parque das Nações and its crowd-pulling sites such as the brilliant Oceanário. Across to the west in Belém, Portugal's golden Age of Discovery is mirrored in the magnificent Mosteiro dos Jerónimos and the quirky Torre de Belém, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.


CRS-6 will take place in the Conference Centre of the Riviera Hotel Carcavelos. Carcavelos is about 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) west of Lisbon.



The Riviera Hotel Carcavelos is situated  in two steps from the open sea, the largest beach on the Estoril line, with its terraces overlooking the beach. From here, you can easily access, explore and discover fantastic places in Lisbon, Cascais and Sintra. The hotel conference center provides multi-purpose meeting rooms with natural light and open views, ideal for business meetings and scientific events.

Carcavelos is a part of the economic subdisctrict of Greater Lisbon. Carcavelos has a reach history. At the mouth of the Tagus River and east of the main beach is the fortification of Fort of São Julião da Barra. It was used to protect the Tagus from enemy ships, but in the 20th century it became the official summer residence of the Minister of Defense.

In the 19th and 20th centuries, Carcavelos was an important landing point in the international telegraph network, providing crucial communication links for the British Empire; most of the links were run by forerunners of the Cable & Wireless company.
Nowadays Carcavelos hosts  a number of international schools including Saint Julian's School, and Nova School of Business and Economics.

The major tourist destination in Portugal - Sintra - is located in the vicinity of Carcavelos. Sintra is famed for its picturesqueness and for its historic palaces and castles. The area includes the Sintra-Cascais Nature Park through which the Sintra Mountains run. The historic center of the Vila de Sintra is famous for its 19th-century Romanticist architecture, historic estates and villas, gardens, and royal palaces and castles, which resulted in the classification of the town as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sintra's landmarks include the mediaeval Castle of the Moors, the romanticist Pena National Palace and the Portuguese Renaissance Sintra National Palace.
