POEMA 1st Workshop
The first Workshop in Florence is planed to immerse the fresh ESR fellows into their research world, to work up new research ideas into firm plans and to start weaving professional connections in their research area. Lectures by POEMA scientists and guests will be delivered, accompanied by brainstorm challenge and problem sessions. Much time will be devoted to open discussions.
The 1st POEMA workshop - Research introductive workshop on Polynomial Optimization and Moments will be organized in Florence from 15-17 January 2020.
The workshop will be organized at: Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, Viale Morgagni, 67/a - 50134 Firenze, Italy.

Getting to Florence
Getting to Florence by Air
The Florence airport (FLR) is called Amerigo Vespucci and is situated on the north-west outskirts of Florence, just 4 km from the city center. The airport can be reached from the center of Florence, driving the whole length of Viale Guidoni up to the road leading to the "Firenze Nord/Firenze Mare" superhighway (A1 and A11).
The center can be reached in about 15 minutes by taxi, and in about 20 minutes with the Tramway T2 line, operating between the airport and the central railway station of Santa Maria Novella. See below for more details.
The Florence Airport is connected to some of Europe's major airports such as Amsterdam, Barcelona, Brussels, Bucharest, Frankfurt, Geneva, London Gatwick, Madrid, Munich, Paris Charles de Gaulle and Vienna. There are also flights to and from the following Italian cities: Bologna, Cagliari, Catania, Milan Malpensa, Olbia, Palermo, Rome Fiumicino, Turin and Verona.
The airport is also easily reached from other Tuscan cities as it is just off the A11 and A1 Firenze Nord exit : Prato (8 km), Pistoia (24 km), Montecatini (36 km), Lucca (65 km), Siena (68 km), Arezzo (77 km), Pisa (86 km), Carrara and Massa (117 km), Grosseto (143 km), as well as from the sea and its ports: Livorno (115 km) and Piombino (170 km).
