THE HOST CITY
Catania is situated at the centre of the Ionian coast in eastern Sicily and
extends from the sea to the foothills of Etna, Europe's highest active
volcano. Catania has historically been a region of many cultures,
represented by different architectural styles (e.g., baroque) and monuments
(e.g., the Greek-Roman Theatre). Due to its geographical position and
history Catania represents a Mediterranean portal to Europe. In recent years
the south of the city has become a centre of industrial development. New
information and communication technologies are now flourishing in the
Catania region, now called "Etna Valley" technological zone.
The Catania Sheraton Hotel is an elegant resort located on the Cyclops
Coast, just 2 miles from the centre of Catania, and is located directly
across the street from the beach. Sheraton Catania Hotel has built an
excellent reputation for providing a beautiful and relaxing place to stay.
Additional Hotels and B&Bs are available near to the Conference Venue and
more information will be available in the web site http://www.ecce.info.
