Malta is an archipelago located at the centre of the Mediterranean, a hub of culture, history, nightlife and technology. It offers the charm of an island with a long history as a trading route between north and south, east and west. It is an exotic lure with a language made up of layers of Romance and Anglo-Saxon influences built on Semitic foundations. Malta is a popular destination all year round but late summer offers something special for those who relish a swim in the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean, with excellent sea temperatures, yet comfortable for general sight-seeing.
As conference organisers, we have made it our priority to extend our warm Maltese hospitality to accompanying persons and planned extensive social programmes for the conference.
