Conference Venue

IV 2018 will take place at the Università degli Studi di Salerno, located at Fisciano

The origins of the University go back to the VIII century AD thanks to the foundation of the celebrated Salerno medical school, an authoritative, prestigious, sanitary institution, which remained important throughout the whole Medieval Age. In addition to teaching medicine, the school also taught philosophy, theology and law.
In 1944, a university institute of arts and education (Istituto universitario di Magistero) was established in the city, on the express wish of Giovanni Cuomo, and in 1968, this became part of the state system and was called the Facoltà di Magistero of the University of Salerno. In only a few years, this Faculty of Arts and Education was joined by several other different faculties, which formed the basis of an expanding university structure. The Faculty of Literature and Philosophy was instituted in1969, the Faculty of Economics and Commerce in 1970, the Faculties of Mathematics, Physics and Natural Sciences and of Law in 1972, the complete course of Engineering in 1983, the Faculty of Pharmacy in 1991, that of Politics in 1992, Foreign Language and Literature in 1996 and finally the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery in 2006.

The conference building is labeled F2 and yellow colored in the Campus Map (
