The CPE-POWERENG 2020 conference will be held in Setúbal School of Technology (ESTSetúbal) in the campus of the Polytechnic Institute of Setúbal.

By Car

Connecting Lisbon and Setúbal, there are two alternatives, the "Vasco da Gama" Bridge and the "25 de Abril" Bridge. Either you choose one or the other the route to Setúbal will be made by Highway. We highly recommend using the A12 motorway, crossing the "Vasco da Gama" bridge, which is a newer bridge (nearer to the Airport) and the view is simply amazing, crossing the Tagus River, by more then 9km, besides that it`s the shortest way. When arriving Setúbal, the campus is around 7 Km far from the city centre. If you’ve rent a car, here are the GPS coordinates: 38.523324196907694, -8.840389251708984.
