iLRN 2017 Social Sunday Tour – grow your network and experience beautiful Coimbra with us

Medieval Castle at Montemor-o-Velho

We are trying our best to make iLRN a memorable event not just during the sessions, but also to generate opportunities to meet your colleagues in informal settings, getting to know each other better.

iLRN 2017 will take place from June 26th – June 29th, 2017 at Coimbra,Portugal. We expect developers, educators, researchers and professionals from all over the world to present their work and to help us developing the scientific, technical, and applied potential of immersive learning. Several participants will be arriving in Coimbra on Saturday and Sunday before the conference, thus, we have organized a social tour on Sunday. This tour will take you to medieval castles, Roman city ruins, rural mountain villages and will end by the sea.

We are keen in creating a vibrant experience for all attendees, where all get to know better and thus we can grow our research network. Coimbra is a historic city, known as the city of students or the Portuguese Athens due to the University central location and role in the history of the city. The University of Coimbra is one of the oldest in the world, dating from 1290; its main building being the former Royal Palace of 1537. This and many colleges and other buildings from the 16th and 17th centuries are now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

If you are attending iLRN 2017, take advantage of this opportunity to know fellow participants in advance and visit the countryside where foreigners rarely go! Full details of the Sunday trip are available at: https://immersivelrn.org/ilrn2017/social-sunday-tour/
