The Local Organising Committee of the V IATIS Conference has made arrangements to provide accommodation offers to conference participants. Although limited in number, the accommodation options selected by the Local Organising Committee have taken into account two different locations, Savassi and Pampulha (see descriptions below), and a reasonable price range for Brazilian standards.

SAVASSI is a neighbourhood close to downtown Belo Horizonte, located approximately 12km from the UFMG Campus. Originally, a residential neighbourhood until the 1970s, it is now thriving with cafés, restaurants and situated within walking distant to the cultural circuit of Praça da Liberdade and Palácio das Artes with several options for cultural and evening entertainment.

PAMPULHA is a neighbourhood in the vicinity of the UFMG Campus and ideally located to those who want to avoid travelling back and forth between the hotel and the conference site. However, one should bear in mind that options for cultural and evening entertainment are rather limited around this neighbourhood.

Prices for all hotels include breakfast and daily transfers between the accommodation site and the conference venue, both in the morning (hotel/UFMG) and in the evening (UFMG/hotel)

To take advantage of the special rates arranged by the Local Organising Committee, accommodation must be booked directly per e-mail. Further information is available at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
