Conference Venue

The University of Rome Tor Vergata was established in 1982: it is therefore a relatively young University. It was designed on the model of Anglo-Saxon campuses. It stretches on 600 hectares and is structured in 6 Schools (Economics; Law; Engineering; Humanities and Philosophy; Medicine and Surgery; Mathematics, Physics and Natural Sciences) which are organised in 18 Departments.

For the Academic Year 2017-2018 Tor Vergata offers to the 39000 students 107 degree courses (bachelor, master and single cycle degree) and 31 PhD courses (taught in Italian or English).

Tor Vergata is keen to sharpen its worldwide profile and offers 19 courses taught in English (6 double/joint degree programmes). Moreover, Tor Vergata teaching encompasses 150 post lauream courses (advanced training courses, 1st and 2nd Level Vocational Master) and 50 Specialisation Schools. Information about ranking can be found at:

It hosts important research institutions, such as CNR and the Italian Space Agency - ASI, making “Tor Vergata” one of the most dynamic aggregations in Italy both for teaching and for scientific research activities. Many other centres are located close to this University, e.g. ENEA, ESA-ESRIN, the National Institute of Astrophysics, Monte Porzio Catone Observatory and the National Institute of Nuclear Physics. Right from the start their presence has contributed to turning "Tor Vergata" into a dynamic research pole.

Furthermore, the Campus hosts one of the most modern hospitals in Italy, i.e. University Hospital Tor Vergata, a care and research centre which is a reference point for the whole Lazio region (but also at national and international level) and where our Medical School is active as well.

There is also the largest botanical garden in Europe and last but not least, there are 6 faculty libraries, 350 rooms for teaching, 29 computer labs, Villa Mondragone congress centre.

The ISNCC 2018 will be hosted at the faculty of engineering in the congress centre within the teaching building, shown in the picture.
